A tank truck is a heavy truck equipped with a stainless steel tank. It is used to transport liquefied, gas or pulverulent loads.
Fuel tank trucks are used to carry diesel, gas or kerosene. Food tank trucks are designed to transport foodstuffs (wine, oil) and may be refrigerated to carry goods like milk. Chemicals tank trucks may contain acids, ethanol, caustic soda and other fluids used by industry. Pulverulent tank trucks are used to carry chemical or food products or minerals in the form of powder. Tar tank trucks transport liquefied asphalt and the gas versions are used to deliver LPG or LNG.
Since they often carry explosive or inflammable products, tank trucks are subject to ADR rules (Agreement for transporting dangerous goods by road). They are equipped with specific signs, fire extinguishers, toxic vapors salvage systems and their impermeability is regularly checked.
A tank truck can be mono or multi tanks according to the number of compartments in its tank. If it transports chemical products, it has to be erosion resistant. Pulverant tanks may be equipped with smooth hoppers (allowing an emptying by the underside) or may tip up (allowing a rear emptying like tippers). Most of tanks are equipped with a pump to load or unload them. Maintenance operations are carried out through a manhole allowing repairmen to access interior of the tank.
