Intermodal ISO containers offer a rugged, durable construction with a highly efficient insulation system for maximum hold times.
Chart's ISO intermodal containers are used to transport cryogenic bulk liquids – nitrogen, oxygen, LNG, argon, methane, nitrous oxide, ethylene and carbon dioxide – worldwide by ship, rail or road. They are available as 20' or 40' models and built in Chart's facilities in the US, Europe and China. Consequently they can be engineered to meet all applicable international design codes and even dual coded as applicable.
The 20' intermodal containers are typically built to according to EN, ASME/DOT or Chinese design standards. Available maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) options include 10, 18, and 24 bar for European design and 100, 150, 180, 230 psi for ASME/DOT designs.
The 40' intermodal containers are designed and optimized for LNG and suitable for high payloads of ethylene or ethane. Also, typically built to according to EN, ASME/DOT or Chinese design standards, with a MAWP of 10 bar for European design and 100 psi for the ASME/DOT design.
Chart also offers a vacuum-insulated container designed specifically to meet the needs of CO2 producers for transporting liquid CO2 by ship, rail or road. The superior thermal performance of the vacuum and the multi-layer super insulation system allows hold times greater than 45 days at pressure from 250 to 350 psig (17.2 - 24.1 bar) without the use of a refrigeration system.
