  • IMO type 1 and type 2 tanks are made of stainless steel shells, while type 5 tanks are generally fabricated from carbon (mild) steel due to the tare weight constraint. However, the piping is made of stainless steel.
  • Based on weight and volume, tank containers have varying capacities. IMO tanks have different types of linings depending upon their ‘T’ codes.
  • IMO adopts certain codes while manufacturing of tank such as International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG), International Safety Management Code (ISM), International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS), International Code of Signals, etc.
