Omni A and AB Tanks
Omni A and AB tanks are approved according to Australian Standard AS2809 and New Zealand HSCOCOP39. The tank volumes range from 12,600 to 15,000 litres. Over 200 A and AB tanks are in service in Australia, some of which have been transporting chemicals including Sodium Hypochlorite and Hydrochloric Acid continuously since 2007.
Omni A and AB tanks can be mounted to a rigid truck chassis or skeletal trailer in many different configurations based on customer requirements. The largest combination of Omni Tankers used in Australia is a B-Double tanker, referred to as a B-Train in many countries, with a total volume of 40,000 litres across three tanks.
Generally, the tanks contain two separate sealed compartments, each at half of the aforementioned total tank volume, to comply with maximum allowable small compartment tank volume based on Australian standards.
Greater overall transport volumes can be achieved through the use of multiple tanks on a trailer or through custom tank designs. The Omni Tanker A and AB tanks are game changing technology for transport operators. This has been recognised by JEC, the largest composites industry network worldwide, who awarded the tanks the 2016 JEC Americas Innovation Award (Transport Category).
