Road Tankers

Road Tankers

 

Byford Equipment has been manufacturing, repairing and modifying road tankers specific to the needs of the food, wine and chemical industries since 1975. We have established a reputation as one of the most versatile transport equipment fabricators in Australia. From highway to outback to farm-gate, Byford Equipment’s engineering and R&D departments have developed unique solutions to meet your industry’s most difficult liquid handling challenges.

Outperform and outlast: Byford Equipment’s road tankers are built in a variety of configurations to meet your specific haulage requirements.

Reduce your running and setup costs: Maximise your Return On Investment. At Byford Equipment, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality equipment on time and on budget.

Fabricating capabilities to meet your specific product handling needs: Designed for efficient, safe and convenient operation, Byford Equipment fabricates tankers in standard austenitic grades – from as 304 and 316 through to super austenitic grades such as SAF2205 and 904L. We use semi automated MIG and TIG welding equipment to maximise weld consistency, quality and appearance on all longitude welds.

Achieve maximum efficiencies at competitive prices by coupling our stainless steel elliptical barrels to our integrated chassis design and various suspensions. We work with you to ensure the finished product meets your requirements and budget whilst maintaining the high levels of quality our reputation demands.

Setting new safety standards in the industry: The safety of all road users is important to us. All our equipment is designed with a low centre of gravity and can be fitted with the most up-to-date electronic suspension and brake monitoring equipment such as EBS and ABS. Our baffles, bulkheads and ends are all hydrostatically blown to provide a stress free dish. Our baffles are fully welded to our barrels to reduce the problem of cracking.

Specific to your needs: Every Byford Equipment tanker is designed and fabricated mindful of the needs of the specific operator and their industry (dairy, wine, food or chemicals).

Bitumen Tankers

bitumen

Byford Equipment bitumen tankers are manufactured using 304 grade stainless steel and offer superior temperature retention. Using the same heavy-duty insulation used on our long-distance milk transport vehicles means we can not only hold the heat, but also minimise the heating required to keep the product liquid. This not only saves fuel, but also extends burner life. Our stainless steel bitumen tankers also resist corrosion, resulting in a longer life.

Each Byford Equipment bitumen tanker is also designed to optimise product flow and minimise product retention.

For maximum usability, all Byford Equipment tankers are designed to go where road construction is being conducted. From single barrel, existing B-Double designs and the NEW AB and A-Double configurations, all Byford designs are allowing larger volumes to be carried directly to site.

  • Lowest centre of gravity on the market
