United Wagon Company started to supply the customers with basalt fiber insulated tank cars

Tank cars for chemical products, model 15-6900, are insulated with moisture-resistant basalt fiber mats. The construction design makes it possible to keep cargo in a liquid state during transportation in cold time of the year at temperatures as low as minus 40С°.

The tank car is unique for the Russian market because of factory installed thermal insulation. Thermal insulating covers can be easily assembled and disassembled to get access to the tank car boiler. This model of a tank car enables the customers to transport a wide range of chemical freights, including caustic alkali, caustic soda, and other chemicals.

The car is designed by the All-Union Research and Development Centre for Transportation Technology LLC and manufactured by the TikhvinChemMash. The both companies are parts of the railway holding United Wagon Company. By the end of 2016, the holding had managed to deliver 15-6900 tank cars to the first consumers, namely Khimprom, Fintrans GL, Bashkir Soda Company.

ReylTransHolding MC LLC presented a railroad tank car designed for transporting chemically active substances, model 15-9544 at the Fifth International Fair of Railway Equipment and Technologies. They applied super thin basalt fiber mats for the boiler thermal insulation.
