Pillow Tanks

Canflex Pillow Tanks are normally pillow shaped bladder tanks having a low profile. The tanks are most often used for bulk liquid storage and transportation operations around the world for storing fuel, water and chemicals, as well as being used for oil spill response / recovery. Typical clients include mining, oil and gas exploration companies, remote construction companies, helicopter operators and disaster relief operations. These tanks ensure complete isolation from surface soil and water, significantly reduce truck traffic to and from the site and increase site safety.

Available accessories include ground sheets, bed liners, UV covers, thermal blankets, heating pads, inflatable secondary containment , fluid pumping systems , hoses, ball valves, webbing harness securing systems (used on truck / boat mountable pillow tanks), repair kit, etc.

All fittings are high quality anodized marine grade aluminum with stainless steel fasteners. Fill and discharge hose connections are generally cam-lock type, connection sizes depend on the user’s needs. Spark arrestors are standard for flammable liquid applications.

Some of the Pillow Tank features are:

  • Fast response tanks that take just minutes to setup with limited personnel.
  • Handles located down the sides of the tank allow for easy setup and packing.
  • All fittings are appropriate for either potable water or hydrocarbons.
  • Can be used immediately with little to almost no site preparation required.
  • Lower your transportation costs. One semi-truck can transport several tanks at a time reducing costs dramatically.

Applications include, but not limited to:

  • Spill Response
