without immediate discharge.
Currently, metal railway tanks and tank
containers are mainly used by the Russian
chemical and petrochemical industry for the
transportation of aggressive chemicals. This
leads to premature failure due to the high aggressiveness of the transported goods, as well
as accidental spills.
A solution to this problem is the development and production engineering of a fundamentally new tank container structure made
of polymer composite materials, which provide a high resistance to transported aggressive chemicals.

Main benefits
ApATeCh's work resulted in the development of a PCM tank structure that has no
equivalent in the world, creating the concept
of a fundamentally new tank container with
PCM tank with improved technical and economic parameters (Table 1).
During the design engineering stage, additional strength conditions were taken into account in view of the PCM's possible fracture
modes, which have not yet been taken into
account in regulatory documents (national
and international).

Focus
ApATeCh is a recognized Russian leader in the field of composite civil structures. The company's target markets are lightweight bridges, transport infrastructure (railways and highways), formulations
and prepregs for high-performance applications, nano-structured CFRP and components for new
Russian aircrafts. Its research centre in the special innovation area of Dubna handles the full cycle of
new product development including structural design, prototyping, certification and organization of
the mass production process.

The current market demand for tank containers with PCM tank is estimated at 750
units a year (at least). ApATeCh already has
a confirmed order of 50 tank containers for
2016. Tank containers are widely used for
multimodal transportation using several
modes of transport (automobile, railway,
or water transport). When using tank containers for multimodal transportation, the
cargo is delivered without transshipment
during the journey, without tampering with
the package. The cargo is delivered with the
consignor's seal, which is very important for
liquid cargo because its properties could be
modified in case of exposure to the ambient
air.
The efficient application of containers for the
transportation of chemical goods is determined by several factors:
- exception of transshipment operations
when changing the mode of transport or
boundary crossing, preservation of the product's manufacturing quality;
- containers can be used as storage reservoirs
at processing plants;
- international shipping of cargo with customs seals, placed at the moment of dispatch,
with crossing of any number of boundaries,
warehousing and temporary storage of goods
