With engineering and manufacturing in 3 continents, Chart offers trailers, semi-trailers, swap bodies, liquid tube trailers and railcars for the safe and efficient distribution of liquid gases including nitrogen, oxygen, argon, carbon dioxide, hydrogen, natural gas and more.
As well as the standard liquid gases mentioned above, transport solutions for liquid nitrous oxide, ethylene, propane, butane, butadiene and ethylene oxide are available on request.
Unrivaled Expertise and Pedigree
Chart has cryogenic trailer manufacturing across the US, in Europe and in China. In the US our Theodore, AL facility traces its history back to the James Russell Engineering Works, Inc., and in Europe incorporates renowned specialist GOFA and the capabilities of another Chart acquisition, VRV.
Chart engineers will work with you to determine the best configuration for your requirements and, regardless of manufacturing location, all equipment is built to the same highest quality standards and in accordance with all associated relevant pressure vessel and transportation codes and regulations.
Liquid Hydrogen Delivery Units
Engineered and built to address the challenges of optimizing payload, reliability and maintainability to meet growing market demand for liquid hydrogen.
Our facility in Theodore, Al has been designing and building liquid hydrogen trailers for more than 55 years, including North America's very first vehicle.
In October 2020, Chart acquired a 300,000 ft2 facility in Mobile, Alabama. While the factory had a proud legacy and industry leading liquid hydrogen trailer manufacturing, it had limited capacity.
In 18 months Chart has increased trailer capacity 5-fold and created >130 jobs in clean tech.
We offer tank cars for a variety of cryogenic liquids: non-flammable liquid argon, oxygen and nitrogen and flammable liquid ethylene, liquid ethane and LNG.
LNG by Rail
In Europe Chart partnered with VTG to develop and construct Europe's first LNG rail tank cars.
In June 2020 the US authorities published a final rule permitting the bulk transportation of LNG by rail. Chart CEO Jillian Evanko spoke with Gasworld about the opportunities and improved economics LNG by rail offers.
Liquid Tube Trailer
Liquid Tube Trailer HP2-2500 is a versatile solution for a wide range of temporary applications typically supported by gaseous high pressure tube trailers in nitrogen and argon service. With its patented high performance pressure builder and vaporizer design, the Liquid Tube Trailer precisely manages the heat for optimum gas flow while keeping the liquid cold for maximum hold time during intermittent use with reduced filling losses.
GOFA, based in Germany, is Chart's specialist European manufacturer providing a complete range of truck bodies including rigids, semi-trailers, mini-bulk and swap bodies.
