DOT 412 Chemical Tank Trailer Case Study

In 2015, Matlack Leasing, LLC approached a global chemical manufacturer offering them a solution to safely transport Benzyl Chloride, a chlorotoluene solvent.  A collaborative effort between the customer, a specialized tank lining company, our depot, and Matlack resulted in successful materials testing and the implementation of a long-lasting solution to transport this hazardous bulk liquid.

The solution consisted of installing a specialized CHEMLINE 784/32 lining in several DOT 412 tank trailers to reduce the likelihood of pitting in the tank barrel.  In addition, specialized piping was added to make offloading more efficient while reducing the chance of leaks or exposure.  The solution is scalable, and we provide additional tank trailers to the fleet as product demand increases. 

Industry and product knowledge spanning over 25 years enables Matlack Leasing to routinely facilitate discussions between customers, manufacturers, and vendors to solve difficult equipment challenges related to bulk liquid transport.
