FLEXIBLE CONTAINER OF BLADDER TANK
The Pozhneftehim Production
The flexible container of the bladder tank is used to store foam concentrate firefighting stock. It is the main operating element of the bladder tank, which is a hollow cylindrical container made of flexible corrosion-resistant and tear-resistant polymer materials.
The Pozhneftehim Group produces custom-made flexible containers for bladder tanks at its own production site in the city of Donskoy, Tula Region. The container is made of hypalon, neoprene and cord with high-quality glue. The technology involves cutting material in large sheets, which ensures greater tightness and durability.
Before shipment/delivery to a customer, the products undergo a quality check on a pneumatic stand. The test results are confirmed by a sealed act. Compliance with production technology is confirmed by a certificate of compliance with the GOST ISO 9001-2011 of the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology of the Russian Federation.
