Title: TANK OR CONTAINER FOR THE TRANSPORT AND STORAGE OF CRYOGENIC FLUIDS, LIQUEFIED GASES, HYDROCARBONS OR CHEMICAL PRODUCTS AT ANY PRESSURE, WHICH PREVENTS EXPLOSIONS AND SPILLS RESULTING FROM THE PHYSICAL RUPTURE OR PENETRATION OF THE TANK FOR ANY REASON
Abstract:
The invention relates to a tank or container for the transport and storage of cryogenic fluids, liquefied gases, hydrocarbons, liquids, chemical products or hydrogen at any temperature and at any pressure, including the movement of same in a self-propelled, autonomous, towed, robotised (drone) manner. In the case of a tank truck, it can be used for the supply and distribution of said liquids, hydrocarbons, gases and/or for the operation of the propulsion system or engine of the truck (tractor unit-motive power unit-engine). This type of tank truck comprises a tank or container formed by a compartment housing an alloy in the form of a mesh or spheres having anti-explosive properties. Said tank or container is connected to, or incorporated into a chassis supporting at least two pairs of wheels and to means for anchoring and securing to a body used to tow, move and transport same. Said tanks or containers can be disposed fully or partially in any position, including completely within the chassis of the truck, and/or combined with the transport of other products and goods, as in road trains used in Australia, comprising a tractor unit which tows multiple platforms, axles, semi-trailers, and which can also tow a tank with liquids, hydrocarbons, liquefied gases, LPG, LNG, but which can also supply said hydrocarbons or gases to the propulsion system or engine of the truck, in an independent, dual or simultaneous manner, so as to increase the autonomy of the truck, reduce operating costs and significantly reduce any environmental impact, without any explosion hazard.
