Heil Trailer announces stainless steel technology, new trailer

For 2014, Heil Trailer launches into the stainless steel segment with a line of general chemical tank trailers that are built with an enhanced focus on quality and performance, similar to the standards of excellence applied to the company’s aluminum tank trailers.

The new stainless steel technology provides state-of-the-art, custom-developed, ultra-high-definition laser cutting for a tighter barrel fit-up and size-optimized, laser-welded barrel joints that ensure little to no grinding or post-processing after fit-up, which creates ultra-clean interiors and maximizes durability, regardless of the product. A proprietary heat panel design on the new products outperforms current dimple panel designs and channel heat designs.

In the near future, the new stainless steel technology will offer up to 3-A sanitary compliance, the highest of sanitary standards for critical food grade and other material requirements.

Heil Trailer also introduced larger capacities to its dry bulk portfolio, allowing customers more options when it comes to the type of commodities they transport. The ultra-cleanable 1611 trailer, a unique dry bulk trailer, will be introduced for the food grade industry.
