Tank Car


Tank cars are designed to carry hazardous and non-hazardous, low, medium and high pressure liquid and gaseous bulk commodities. There are many types of tank cars in a wide range of sizes based on the commodity characteristics including D.O.T. hazard class, weight per gallon, vapor pressure and viscosity. Some tank cars require sprayed on interior coatings or linings which prevent contamination to the commodities or damage to the cars. Tank cars are highly regulated by the Department of Transportation and require periodic, extensive, time and mileage based inspections.
