Top advantages of ADR semi-trailers
The haulage of dangerous goods by road creates numerous risks to drivers, other road users and the public, not to mention the environmental risks. Fortunately, in the UK and across Europe, the number of serious incidents is relatively low. With strict procedures in place and ADR regulations that must be met by manufacturers, today’s cutting-edge bulk liquid chemical trailers are incredibly safe to operate, and tank-tested utilising the world’s most durable materials.
Less physical work needed
Many ADR drivers appreciate the loading and unloading of diesel, gas oil, engine oil or other hazardous chemicals using dedicated hoses because there is minimal physical effort needed — especially when compared to loading and unloading curtainsiders. There is also less effort involved in balancing loads. For example, because liquid loads tend to move around while you drive, balancing it across your axles doesn’t make a great deal of difference. For newly qualified ADR drivers, ‘surge’ can prompt the unnerving feeling of the liquid in the tank sloshing when the truck moves, however, patience, control and experience are crucial to success, and most modern ADR/Chemical trailers are built to be immensely stable, minimising ‘surge’.
As you would probably expect, these highly durable tankers are built to last, using top quality, robust materials. Not only does this save you a significant amount of invested capital in the long-run, but your tanker may not depreciate as quickly as you might expect. Truck Trading buys all types of used bulk liquid tankers, including those that are designed for ADR purposes, with some dating back almost half a century, yet we’re still able to offer excellent prices!
Jetting Tankers are most common in municipal operators’ fleets, ranging from low volume combination units to medium and high-volume combination units. Therefore, they’re equipped to clean and working on mainline sewers, gullies and drains on residential and commercial premises. With high-pressure water jetting to clear gully connections and domestic drains, these reliable vehicles can also be used to empty septic tanks and cesspools, helping homeowners and businesses maintain clean and efficient water systems, even if they’re not connected to the main sewer network.
Best known for efficiently recycling dirty sewer water during jetting operations, these tankers are seen as the ultimate workhorse in the world of Waste Management, providing efficiency, proven performance and reliability. These tankers recycle the water used during jetting operations, increasing the amount of time spent working whilst delivering excellent value for money and a more efficient and eco-friendly solution. Recycler Jetters can remove large volumes of silt, debris, and roots whilst making light work of cleaning drains and removing blockages.
Vacuum tankers generally range from 7.5 tonnes (vacuum tank body) to 32 tonnes (8-wheeler vacuum tank body), so they’re very versatile in size, features and operation. These robust vehicles are designed to transport liquid waste — both non-hazardous and ADR hazardous. In terms of the materials used for the tank itself, 316 and 304-grade stainless steel are widely used for ADR hazardous waste, whilst non-hazardous liquid vacuum tankers are often designed with lightweight aluminium and carbon steel.
Jet Vac and vacuum tankers will give operators a great deal of flexibility and control. For example, you’re able to remove debris, clear pipes, prevent drain blockages and solve problems in hard-to-reach places, so you instantly open doors to new opportunities, with high-pressure water jetting helping to keep the world we live in clean and efficient.
A sludge tanker is suitable for a variety of services, such as Septic Tank/Cesspit Emptying, Site Toilet Tank Emptying, Food Processing Waste, Heavy Sludge, Effluent, Sewage, Silt Removal and Oil/ Fuel Interceptor Cleaning. The most common capacities in UK towns and cities range from 1,500 to 6,000 gallons.
