Tanker trailers are perhaps one of the most recognisable semi-trailers on the road. Yet, types vary considerably, with each model built to store and transport specific liquids (and sometimes powders). This could be anything from gas to milk, chemicals, molasses, wine and diesel, to name a few! Tankers also vary in size from those that can carry 500 gallons to well over 1000 gallons in volume. Whatever tanker trailer you have, you can request a valuation by inputting your details above — it only takes 30 seconds to complete!
Bulk liquid ADR/chemical semi-trailers are made of stainless steel or aluminium, and they can often be insulated with steam coils to protect cold-sensitive liquids. From single compartments to multi compartments (such as two, three or four), it’s possible for these trailers to transport a wide variety of dangerous goods. Chemical semi-trailers are built to the provisions of ADR, which essentially means these trailers are certified to transport hazardous liquids when fully loaded safely. ADR chemical tanker trailers are much smaller than your typical liquid tankers, requiring third-party inspections for quality and used for many different purposes. They often have multiple compartments so that you can store many kinds of liquid. These liquids are typically chemicals, many of which will be caustic, and they must be kept safe during transportation. At Trailer Trading, we buy all types of used bulk liquid tankers, including those designed for ADR purposes. From late models to traditional trailers dating back several decades, we buy all types, regardless of age, size or condition.
Powder tanker trailers can transport cement, flour, mineral powder, chemical powders, fly ash, salt, sugar and stone powder, among other materials. The tank’s design allows it to transport a broader range of materials than a horizontal tank, whilst the pneumatic discharge can be used for powder and granule materials. When tipping the tank correctly, gravity brings the materials down smoothly, ensuring the powders is moved to the designated pit without delay. The vacuum-sealed tank prevents air from tampering with the materials, yet it also prevents mould and germs. Most tanks are manufactured so that zero moisture can make it inside. Therefore, you never have to worry about the quality of your goods being compromised.
Gas tankers (also known as fuel tank trailers) are designed to transport liquids such as diesel fuel and unleaded gasoline in large volumes. The tanks may be pressure or non-pressurised and insulated or non-insulated. Some models are purely designed to carry one load, so they have one compartment, whilst those built to carry various loads have multiple compartments, thanks to internal divisions in the tanks. Other distinguishing factors include refrigeration capability, pressurisation capability and acid resistance, but whatever type of gas tanker trailer you’re looking to sell, we are on hand, ready to provide a fast and fair quote for you to consider.
