Description
Containers for potable water

Containers for potable water are designed for transportation, storage, and distribution of potable water in field conditions, at particular stages of water supply to military troops. It is designed in two versions: with and without thermal insulation.
The container with thermal insulation is adapted for operation in any season of the year or day in the temperature range from -35oC to +55oC. Moreover, it may be used for fire extinction, wetting of ground or neutralizing weapons and equipment. The container disassembled from the vehicle may operate independently.

The container for potable water is built on a typical 10' or 20' container. It may also be based on the system of hook ontainers or Flatrack 20" pallet system.

Container tank capacity from 5m3 to 15m3, according to the container version.

All the parts being in contact with potable water are made of corrosion-resistant materials admitted to contact with food products.
