US DOT Containers

For hazardous liquid and gas transportation

Since 1936, Columbiana Boiler Company has been manufacturing specialized containers or drums to transport liquid and gas commodities in various hazard classes. Our single goal is to ensure that our customers do not have a release of any commodity.

Hazard classes that CBC tanks can transport include:

CBC manufactures both the 106 and 110 styles of approved multi-unit tank car tanks for the transportation of gases and liquids under the US Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), as listed in 49 CFR 172.101.

106A Series

For chlorine, refrigerant gas and liquid transportation

The US DOT 106A multi-unit tank car tanks, commonly referred to as Ton Tanks or Ton Containers, and internationally recognized as a horizontal drum or pressure vessel, are commonly used for the transportation of hazardous gases and liquids. These include:

Columbiana Boiler Company 106A horizontal tank series has the exclusive safety-engineered feature of inverted-heads. If a tank is accidentally over-pressured, the heads will reverse (become convex) or push out, providing an immediate visual indication of over pressurization. The reversed heads also provide additional capacity to reduce the pressure and provide valuable time for safety or corrective action.

The 106A designs are approved for transportation of CL2 at 2000 lbs and 2204 lbs at a 125% filling density.

The 106A500X is the only container under the US Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) approved for transportation for Chlorine. Featuring a new CBC design, the 106A500W is manufactured under Special Permit issued by the US DOT due to the "W" style complying with ASME Code requirements. The 106A tank series is approved for the IMDG Code for international acceptance (CA 1996070013).
