ISO Tanks vs. Disposable Liquid Totes

Reusable ISO tanks need to be sterilized and tested before a new product is placed inside. With disposable liquid transport containers, you are always working with a fresh container and completely eliminate any chance of cross contamination. 

Higher Possibility of Contamination with an ISO Tank

Bulk liquid containers are only used once so they are far less likely to contaminate your product. This improves product quality compared to an ISO tank.  If you have to transport an ISO tank from one country to another, there will be expensive return freight of the empty ISO tank back to the point of origin.  

Specialized vs. Standardized Equipment for Transportation

ISO tanks need additional equipment in trucks for safe transport. In contrast, standard trucks can transport liquid disposable totes without any additional freight equipment.  This helps avoid upcharges and additional fees for transporting the ISO tanks.   Try Paper Systems' liquid storage totes and you will see a different right away.
