Flexitanks & Liquid Bulk Tanks for Shipping

PPC have been manufacturing liquid bulk tanks, known as 'Flexitanks' since 2000. We offer a unique design and manufacturing service and can tailor our products to meet our customers' specific requirements.

Bulk Liquid FlexitankWe manufacture our Bulk Liquid Flexitanks for a wide range of non-hazardous industrial and food grade liquids.

Flexitanks can be supplied via our UK plant or our plant in the Far East which manufactures a similar range of products. Both sites were amongst the first in the world to gain ISO9001 quality accreditation for manufacturing these products.

Liquid Bulk Flexitank Options

Bulk Liquid FlexitankWe are able to produce Flexitanks to virtually any size, only restricted by the cubic capacity / weight agreed in the Flexitank manufacturing standard PAS1008, or weight restrictions currently applicable in a specific country.

Flexitanks can be manufactured to facilitate either top or bottom loading using a simple valve system: Or can be supplied with a fully integrated hose assembly.

The flexitanks can be made in Single Ply or Multi Ply versions.

Bulk Liquid FlexitanksWe are able to provide a number of different bulkhead configurations using Steel bars combined with a plastic sheet or water resistant board bulkhead.

Barrier films, developed in conjunction with our suppliers are extensively tested (and considered by the industry to be amongst the best available) and can be incorporated into the flexitank to protect the product from adverse conditions such as moisture and Oxygen degradation.

Discharging aids such as Heater pad systems are also manufactured by Phiton and used for products that become very viscous or solidify when cooled.


Flexitank Valves & Fittings
