Flexitank Overview

Flexitank, known as flexibag, is one kind soft, high-strength, light-weight single-use large bladders with valves. It is designed to fit inside general purpose freight standard 20 foot ISO container. Flexitank logistics is for the bulk transportation of non-hazardous liquids that are not classified or regulated as dangerous goods.

As the China professional flexitank manufacturer, we introduce the most advanced technologies and material to produce the highest quality flexitank bag under the strictest quality standard. DooFlexi flexi tank is constructed from multiple Polyethylene (PE) layers and Polypropylene (PP) layer, with various valves. The capacity sizes are from a specific capacity ranging from 14 to 24m3. All the material is brand new, food grade, and compliant with EC and FAD regulations.

The common liquid includes oil, wine, diesel, diesel, palm oil. Somebody also uses it for water storage bladder tanks.

Flexitank System Design

The system used for the transport of liquid commodity. While a flexitank is a single entity,
it operates as part of a system which includes the flexitank bag, its fittings, restraining system

Flexitank Material

Our material properties meet (higher) the requirements of PAS 1008:2016.
Multilayer flexibag consisting of polyethylene/polyethylene blend film with a sleeve.

Inner Polyethylene Liner (PE Film)

PP film is used to pocket the inner liquid. It also can protect the transported product from all external factors that might alter the original condition of the product contained in the flexitank. So the PE film must be high puncture resistance, high stretching resistance, and anti-rub properties.

Our PE film is manufactured with a unique special formula. Please refer below its typical characteristics. All our raw material is from Exxon Mobil and Dow. We test each roll PE film under the control of ISO 9001 Quality Management System.

Below is the typical characteristics of 0.125mm PE film.

Woven Polypropylene Outer Sleeve (PP)

The woven polypropylene outer sleeve is used outside to protect the PE inner bladder well. So its strength is very important. Our PP outer film sleeve is an integral molding tubular type design. No need to seam two sides. This design ensures the higher strength and more safety than the traditional two PP layers seaming design.

We use the highest grade brand new PP raw material from Sinopec. Never use the reclaimed material. It ensures our PP layers has greater performance on has a great performance on stretching resistance and anti-friction, also provide flexitank with best and reliable production.

Flexitank Loading and Discharging

SGS Certificated comply with FDA Standard  |  Maximum Pressure 0.8Mpa.

DooFlexi has four type valves for your choice: Butterfly Valves, Ball Valves, Auto Airvent, Manual Airvent.

We uses the special High-Strength polypropylene material, which is FDA and EC certificated. These PP valves have higher strength, high and low-temperature resistance,  corrosion resistance. It ensures the valves can work well under violent collision.

The valves are designed with threaded self-locking pull and securing cap. It ensures better tightness and safety. The special design bottom filter can prevent the valve from being suffocated by the inner PE layers.

Each valve is sterilized and tested before using. The common size is 3 inch. The 2 inch and 4 inch is valves are available upon request. We also can provide the adapter for your special request.

To protect the safety, the airvent can automatically to expel the inside air when the pressure reaches 1~2 psi.

Choose Ball Valve or Butterfly Valve?

What's the different ball valve with butterfly valve? How to choose it?

Ball Valve VS Butterfly Valve

Comparing with the butterfly valve, the ball valves can seal more tightly, higher flow velocity and has better resistance to pressure.

Max. Pressure of Ball Valve: 0.8Mpa
Max. Pressure of Butterfly Valve: 0.4Mpa
