Trailer configuration gives greater capacity

Irish company Petroleum Distributors is using two new petroleum semi-trailers, from Heil Trailer International, which each feature six compartments all with the equal capacity of 7,000 litres.

Petroleum Distributors’ Fergus Murphy comments: “The new trailers are excellent. They have enabled greater efficiency through the resulting greater capacity coupled with the low net weight, all of which achieves what we require – increased payload.”

Hauled by Daf and Volvo tractor units, the new trailers feature Civacon bottom loading vapour recovery systems coupled with fast flow Alfons Haar cargo pumps.
