History: Tank cars are a railroad staple. They have been around since the first half of the 20th century. These railcars carry a wide array of commodities, including liquid fertilizers, chemicals, fuel oils and asphalt, and food-grade oils. Tank cars can be pressurized or non-pressurized, insulated or non-insulated. Single dome cars carry only a single commodity at once. Food-service tank cars may be lined with stainless steel, glass, or plastic. Tank cars carrying dangerous goods are generally made of different types of steel, depending on the intended cargo and operating pressure. They may also be lined with rubber or coated with specialized coatings for tank protection or product purity purpose. The tank heads are also stronger to prevent ruptures during accidents.

The Zans petroleum railcar: The tank wagon is designed for the transportation of liquid chemical and petroleum products compliant with the tank code L4BH. The optimized tare weight and the payload capability leads to an effective transportation of medium density petroleum products (i.e. diesel). Different loading and unloading equipment fitted on the tank, can be adapted in accordance with customer requirements. The wagon design meets the requirements of RID, TSI, EN, UIC standards and has TEN RIV marking for traffic peration.

Capabilities: The tank is loaded/filled through the dome (fitted with flap cover secured with 4 screws). The tank is discharged through the lower side, through the discharge pipe DN 100. Bottom valve is operated through a mechanical bilateral operating device.

Railroad/Company: In June 2017, The Greenbrier Companies, Inc. (NYSE: GBX) and AstraRail Management GmbH merged and began operating under the name Greenbrier Europe. It covers the activities of Greenbrier’s European operations headquartered in Świdnica, Poland and AstraRail based in Arad, Romania. It is led by an experienced Europe-based management team from both companies. Greenbrier Europe offers high-end freight railcar manufacturing, innovative engineering, repairs and refurbishments and customer service. Greenbrier Europe also performs projects and customer needs from outside Europe, like in the Gulf Cooperation Council nations or the Eurasia region.
