Ultra-Tanker Tourniquets®

Stop leaks from overturned tanker trucks, railcars, and other large vessels

Accidents, punctures, and corrosion are facts of life. With a Tanker Tourniquet, however, you can minimize environmental damage, protect lives and save the load.

  • Simple, effective device compresses a chemical resistant, flexible pad against splits or punctures to stop leaks.
  • When a spill occurs, the device is centered over the rupture and working from the top, pressure is applied to the device onto the tanker surface.  This effectively forces the envelope of compression material into every crevice of the split.
