The world leading superior self-supporting reefer flexitank is the first self-supporting flexitank for reefer (refrigerated) shipping containers that offers the following unique advantages:

  • the reefer shipping container flexitank has been specifically designed to be used for the transport of liquids in 40' refrigerated shipping containers.
  • it can be used in standard 40' shipping containers and is ideal for high density liquids such as liquid sugars or fruit concentrates
  • unlike other flexitanks, the reefer flexitank does not exert any pressure on the sides of shipping containers thereby removing the risk of damaging shipping containers or refrigeration equipment potentially causing them to fail due to the forces at play
  • reduced dispoal costs and waste issues because the reefer flexitank does not require any bulkhead 
  • the installation process has been simplified. This historically has been the area of greatest risk in flexitanks. The R Flex can be installed easily by one person in two minutes (traditional flexitanks with bulkheads can take up to 40 minutes with two people)
  • the reefer flexitank is available in sizes from 16,000 litres to 24,000 litres  


Reefer Shipping Container Flexitank Benefits for your business

  • reduced installation cost
  • reduced waste and disposal cost (no bulkhead to be disposed of or shipped back to origin)

  • reduced risk of damaging containers because it is self supporting and does not exert any pressure on the external walls or any of the refrigeration equipment
  • the selection criteria for containers is relaxed (due to the self supporting flexitank) meaning that a higher percentage of containers can be used with the reefer flexitank
  • The reefer flexitank is recyclable
