We use various grades of polyethylene including diesel grade, food grade and cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) for the rotomoulding of our liquid carts at our Yarrawonga, Vic. plant. Depending on your requirement we will determine the material that best suits your application. Chemicals, diesel, oil, water, other liquids and waste may be transported or stored in these carts.

Liquid Transport cart features:

  •  they are designed for easy transportation of liquids and particularly the transportation of fuel to field machinery and docked boats
  • an optional trigger nozzle provides ease of refuelling without spillage
  • an optional pump is available for elevated refuelling requirements
  • the currently available capacities are 50 and 120 litres
  • the wheels are recessed, pneumatic tyres are fitted to the 120 litre unit
  • an integrated chamber design restricts tank expansion and increases strength
  • the 120 litre unit has a moulded-in handle and moulded-in finger grips for ease of lifting full containers into a trailer or vehicle.

Notes for petrol containers:

  • Under the Australian standards Code AS/NZ 2906:2001 there is no provision for plastic petrol containers over 25 litres. As such the liquid transport cart of 50 litres and 120 litres do not fall under any Australian Standard code.
  • The Australian Dangerous Goods Code distinguishes between flammable and combustible liquids by their flash points. The flash point is the lowest temperature of the liquid at which the vapour above it can be ignited by an ignition source, such as a static electricity discharge i.e. a spark. Petrol — having a flash point below 23°C — is classified as a flammable liquid but diesel fuel, with a flash point exceeding 60°C, is regarded as a combustible liquid. If the flash point of a combustible liquid exceeds 93°C then the material would not be regarded as a dangerous good/hazardous chemical — in terms of flash point.
  • Static electrical charges are commonly built up by the movement of people, objects or liquids and have the potential to discharge to ground or to an object with a lesser charge. If a plastic petrol container is made from a non-conductive material (i.e. a material that lacks anti-static properties) the sloshing of petrol during transport will facilitate the build-up of an electrostatic charge in the petrol until there is enough electrical energy for a spark discharge. Anti-static materials added to the resin make the finished product slightly conductive and prevent the formation of static charges on the container when grounded.
  • During vehicle refuelling, the prevention of fire risks due to static electricity spark discharge — from the fuel or the person — is dependent upon effective bonding (i.e. electrical path continuity between the vehicle/machinery, fuel container, fuel, funnel and person) plus effective grounding of the system. The possibility of spark discharge increases in very dry atmospheric conditions.
