Bulk Powder Tankers, also known as pneumatic and cement tank trailers are used to transport cement, flour, mineral powder, chemical powders and limestone powder. Offloading the tank is a smooth and swift process thanks to the pneumatic system. Cargo is also very well protected and carried in a vacuum-sealed tank, preventing air from sneaking in and compromising the quality and worth of the product.
There are many different types, from horizontal to funnel and lifting. The horizontal type is very popular with a low centre of gravity. This design minimises the chances of a costly spill or a tip-over, allowing operators to undertake safe processes, during loading, transportation and offloading. The funnel trailer enables the vehicle to carry a broader range of materials, whilst the lifting type is a must for offloading in very tight spaces. At Truck Trading, we buy all kinds of Bulk Powder Tankers and Tipping Silo Tankers, so whether you want to sell a trailer that’s been used for hauling cement, chemical powders or fly ash, we buy all makes and models.

Flexibility with single and multi-compartment tankers
There is a vast range of single and multi-compartment tankers available in any number of capacities, meaning you have complete flexibility over the design that best suits your needs. Most bulk powder tankers are very easy to work with, especially if a pneumatic system is included, saving time between transportation trips. Having bought many of these semi-trailers, we are highly skilled in providing accurate quotations for our clients. The powder tankers we buy have often been used on large construction sites and cement factories as well as warehouses.
Quality and safety
With all cargo stored safe and sound inside a vacuum-sealed tank, it’s very easy to prevent air from tampering the product and affecting its quality. Most tanks are manufactured in a way that no mould, germs or moisture can get inside and contaminate it, meaning you can retain the quality, and quantity, of the ingredients no matter how long the journey is.
Transport a multitude of materials
Bulk powder tankers are designed to carrying a comprehensive range of materials, including bulk cement, coal ash, fly ash, limestone powder, mineral powder, sand, salt and sugar. They not only reduce the loss rate but also simplify the loading and unloading process — maximising efficiency and productivity whilst reducing costs.
There are many powder tankers that are fitted with Donkey engines/Power packs with compressor units that discharge or offload product from aluminium vessels. We buy donkey engines with compressor systems and power packs on their own too, such as those by the likes of Perkins, John Deere, JCB, Yanmar, Cummins, HATZ. With
Compressor system models, the main manufacturers include GHH, RAND, Mouvex, Blackmer Typhoon and CS80. If you are looking to sell your donkey engine or blowing equipment, please send us a message here.
