Thermoport Transport Tanks


thermoport.jpg  
thermoport2.jpg Thermoport transport tanks are ideal for moving your fish conveniently and safely. 
They are robustly, rotationally moulded in inert polyethylene in a range of 4 practical sizes. 
Being much lighter and impact resistant than glassfibre, they increase your fish-carrying capacity.   
The smallest size slips easily into a hatchback, whilst the largest two sizes are ideal for
trailers, pick-ups and lorries. The latter two sizes have a unique, double wall construction,
with the inner layer being a special polyethylene foam. This has great insulating properties,
yet is robust and hygienic.
 
 

Optional extras available at the time of ordering:
unique, fish-friendly ball-drain sluice for easy fish transfer. For the 600 and 800l tanks only, available 200 or 250mm Ø 
stainless steel mounting brackets for secure mounting to the bed of the transport vehicle / trailer 
Tank aerators options include tank aerators, 12 v compressors and diffusers or bottled oxygen with diffusers (diffused aeration).

NEW - Thermoport T1100 fish transport tank
thermoport_1100_copy.jpg 
 LINN Thermoport fish transport tanks have been tried and tested over more than 15 years of daily use. Over the years, there have been requests for bigger polyethylene fish transport tanks. The reasons are obvious: Thermoport fish transport tanks are robust and easy to maintain, the price is unbeatable and they are available with relatively short delivery times.
These are the reasons a great investment has been made to develop a tool for a bigger tank.  It is now possible to supply a new Thermoport with a capacity of 1100 litres – unique on the European market.  Tanks of this size have previously been made of glass fibre, with the usual disadvantages, compared to Thermoport.

The new, bigger tank is made in one piece, without welds or seams.  It is made of food-safe plastic (PE) which is resistant to chemicals and disinfectants, helping to maintain biosecurity between loads of fish.  It is also tough and impact-resistant.
Despite the large size, great care has been taken with the design to ensure all corners are round to prevent injuries to the fish and increase the stability of the water load.

The special construction (PE : PE foam) taken from the design of the smaller tanks, gives excellent insulation, reduces heating-up and provides a more constant temperature.

The Thermoport 1100 has built-in hollow handles on each end. As a new feature, each of the long side walls have been shaped to incorporate a handle, flush with the side.  This makes the tank space-efficient, and easier to move.  
All of the handles are suitable for lashing the tank onto the vehicle. For more permanent fixing, the tank can be supplied with factory-fitted, stainless steel brackets.

The lid has been designed carefully – like the other tanks in the range – for ease of transfer of the fish.

 Normally, fish transport tanks of this size are delivered fitted with a sluice  (optional, at extra cost). The standard sluice, or the unique, Linn ball sluice (2 sizes available) can be fitted.
Another important feature of this new tank is that it has a sloping bottom.  This assists drainage in general, but is especially valuable for fish transfer if a sluice is fitted.

The standard Thermoport 1100 is fitted with an internal discharge screen on the inside and a plug (2´´). A 2” drain valve is available as an optional extra.
 
 


GRP Transport Tanks


grpttanksballsl.jpggrpttanksstdsl.jpggrpttanksslidevalve.jpg
 All GRP-Transport tanks are supplied with a standard lid. The purpose-built oversized lid makes it easy to transfer fish into the tank using a net. The lid is easy to open and shut. The closure mechanism is fitted inside the lid, so preventing harm to fish caused by a closure sticking out into the body of the container. The lid seal is positioned in a fold on the container and not the lid. Tgrpttanksautoweigh.jpghe seal is thus protected, hardwearing and easy to replace. The transport tank can also be fitted with a patented LINN Outlet sluice (200 or 250 mm diameter) or a standard sluice (opening from the ogrpttanksautoweigh2.jpgutside), so that fish can be emptied out of the container easily, quickly and safely
The sides of the container slope towards the top so as to minimise bumping up and down caused by the water insidgrpttanksautoweigh3.jpge. Inner screen and drain valve are included as standard and fastening brackets can be easily incorporated by us for secure fixing of the container to your trailer, van or pick-up. In addition we have

Introducing the new GRP-Fish transport tank series from LINN!
The tanks are made completely from GRPand have no wooden interior!
The tank’s dimensions and fittings make it ideally suited to the
transport requirements and load area of transit vans and pick-ups.
The tanks come in two basic sizes (120 x 95 cm and 160 x 95 cm)
and in addition can be supplied in two heights (75 cm and 95 cm),
so giving a choice of the right tank for every need.

Transportable Liquid Oxygen Tank
 


 It is now possible to maximise the benefits of your bulk liquid oxygen, by using it for transporting fish.  Up until now,
transportable liquid oxygen tanks have been available in large sizes, for use on large lorries, dedicated to the transport of fish. 
The technology has been proved over many years.  This small transportable liquid oxygen tank has been developed
for use on pick-ups and trailers.  This means that it can be fitted to the vehicle, when required, allowing the vehicle to be
used for other purposes.

Normally, oxygen bottles are used, but to use them is expensive and labour-intensive.  In addition, they are heavy, and it is
often impossible to carry spares to cover traffic jams and delays.  In recent years, many fish farmers have bulk tanks of
liquid oxygen to supply their farm. As a result, it is now possible to save time and money with the new small oxygen tank!
The new oxygen tank has a volume of 60 litres (equivalent to approximately 51 m3/5 big oxygen bottles). It is easy to fill this
tank from the bulk tank at the fish farm. The cost savings are such that the investment in the tank system is soon paid for.
Then you can forget the annoyance of buying, changing and transporting oxygen bottles!
The potential savings are considerable, as in this working example: Assuming a cost of 25 € to fill an oxygen bottle (50 l/200
bar = 10 m3) and a purchase price of 0.15 € per kg for liquid oxygen, the net saving is more than 100 € every time the tank is
filled!

 The new oxygen tank is supplied complete with the mechanism for filling (2.5 m filling tube) and it can be bolted to the
truck. Naturally, the tank is certified for road transport (German TÜV). The tank insulating vacuum is guaranteed for 24
months.
