Tanker trucks are adapted to be used in a number of different industries, allowing for the delivery of various substances, such as fuel, food, liquids and even dry powders. And there are many used tanker trucks available, allowing commercial operations to save money when expanding their fleet. Because this category features various makes and models, it is important to assess the type of tanker you require as well as inspect any prospective purchase thoroughly.
The capacity of a tanker truck is typically measured in litres, with smaller models accommodating around 20,000 litres and larger variants having room for double this amount. Depending on the type of load that is being carried, they may have a pressurised container mounted on the trailer. The container might also feature multiple compartments within which different loads can be kept separate from one another. Compact tanker trucks which have capacities of between roughly 4,000 and 11,000 litres may be used for smaller operations such as vacuuming sewage systems and jetting paved areas.

Whichever type of tanker truck is chosen, the buyer of a second-hand model should take care to assess the state of any additional equipment which is included. This inspection should cover things such as hosing, fixtures and gauges which govern the manner in which payloads are added and removed from the rear tank. These parts should not only be in good working order but should also be present and correct, with any missing components noted. Without the correct set of equipment it will be impossible for a tanker truck to make the kinds of deliveries and collections that are required of it.
The material from which the tanker trailer is constructed will determine the type of payload it can accommodate, and different industries have different regulations governing the use of certain tanker types. Pet-reg tankers are required for the transporting of fuel in the UK, while tankers which are to come in contact with foodstuffs and perishable liquids, such as dairy products, must be made of stainless steel to ensure that appropriate hygiene levels are maintained. Meanwhile, where dry powers are involved, bulk blower tankers will be used, since this type of material is not as easy to load and unload using other methods.
Another aspect of tanker trucks which used buyers must take into account is the position of the loading mechanism. Top-loading and bottom-loading tanker trucks are available second-hand, providing different benefits. And if a tanker truck is to cover long distances, then the type of cab that features up front will also be important. Sleeper cabs for overnight stops are common on larger models, while recent cabs will be equipped with other advantageous technologies such as cruise control, electric windows, heated mirrors and more. Checking the state of the trailer is just as important as examining the cab, as the weight of the bulk materials in the rear can really put the whole tanker truck through its paces. With the right amount of research, it is possible to secure a tanker truck on the used market at a good price.
