FULL-VAC TRIDEM TRAILER

Posted: August 1, 2014

From Advance Engineered Products in Regina comes the new Super 407 aluminum full-vac, double conical, tridem trailer, said to be 60% lighter than comparable steel trailers. The company says it’s designed to "significantly" improve load times and payloads — up to 30 MT (66,140 lb) — over non-vac crude units while delivering lower fuel costs and better pulling dynamics.

Its features include 36,000-liter capacity and the full vacuum design (35 psi pressure rating) allows for versatility in applications, Advance says. It also boasts a 200°F (93°C) temperature rating.

The double-conical design — with a claimed 50% more slope than industry standards – allows for exceptional clean-outs. The design holds a TCRN and is fully certified to TC-407 & ASME.

The trailer is said to be aerodynamically more efficient due to its
streamlined exterior and integrated support rings, which should lower fuel costs.

Among other features, a large 6-in. discharge outlet utilizes a fully opening knife-gate valve to ensure maximum flow rates are achieved. Three 20-in. manholes and float shut-offs are standard equipment. Various options available include pump-off lines, stand-pipe, Rochester level gauge, stub-lines and clean-outs.
