Portable Chemical Tanks

BEV undertakes design, manufacture, testing, painting and certification of Portable Pressurised Tanks for hazardous cargo. These are used transporting hazardous chemicals under International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG) through various modes of transport such as ship, rail, road etc. anywhere in the world. The range of certifications cover typically ASME U Stamp, IMDG, ADR, RID, US DoT, UK DfT, CSC etc. The portable tank may be mounted on ISO 14196 frame or free standing on forklift pockets. These are certified by Lloyds Register UK.


BEV has a team of competent design engineers, design checker and draftsmen experienced in the field. Pressure vessel design is done using PVElite and customs developed spread sheets. In the case of frame mounted tanks, for design of frames, our design associates use Ansys or StaddPro software for design modelling and analysis. Autocad Inventor is used for detailed engineering and drafting including building 3D model. All materials of construction are chosen to meet the code requirements, especially impact property and traceability. Design appraisal is carried out by Lloyds Register, UK and a Design Appraisal Certificate is obtained. Prototype manufacture, testing and approval follows. In the case of frame mounted tanks, both static load tests and dynamic rail road impact tests could be performed in IMDG / US DoT approved test houses. For self standing tanks, BEV is also fully equipped to carry out proto type testing in-house.

We have CNC profile cutters and flux cored arc welding machines, both manual and semi automatic. Barring full penetration welds, all other welding is done using FCAW. We have an extensive range of WPQRs to ASME Sec IX, AWS D1.1 and EN 288 covering a wide range of materials, thicknesses and processes. We deploy welders and welding operators certified to the appropriate standard. We have a team of QC Inspectors and AWS/CSWIP 3.1/3.2 Certified Welding Inspectors. We have a fully enclosed steel grit blasting facility and air less spray painting facility. Non destructive testing such as radiography, ultrasound etc. and material testing at NABL accredited testing facility is available within reach.
