For over 40 years, Aero Tec Laboratories has produced a wide variety of collapsible fabric tanks, also known as Flex-Tanks™ and Pillow Bladders. These reinforced rubber tanks hold fuels (even JP-8), chemicals, dielectric oil, gases, water, effluents and slurries. Capacities from 25 gallons (100 liters) to 100,000 gallons (400,000 liters) are available in both industrial and defense specification. Whether it be the scorching temperatures of the desert or the bone-chill of the arctic, ATL Flex-Tanks withstand most any environmental extreme.

SERVING:

Defense Industry Environment
Exploration Energy Agriculture
Utilities Homeland Security Relief Organizations

Flex-Tanks by ATL are in use worldwide for disaster relief, homeland security, emergency response, power utilities, remote work camps, exploration and mining facilities, farms, hotels and resorts, hospitals, refineries, chemical plants, water works, harbors, concerts and sporting events, construction sites, spill clean-up locations and many U.S. and foreign defense installations. Flex-Tanks are also perfect for storage of temporary municipal water in case of a wide spread emergency. Flex-Tanks can be used for containment of DECON wash-down fluids, and as a component of mobile HazMat trailers.

ATL also manufactures Range Extension Bladders for fishing, yachting, and ferrying; and Conservator Bladders for the containment of transformer oil.

Over the years, ATL has been the proud suppliers to the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, United Nations, World Food Programme, U.S. State Department, DynCorp, KBR and many more world-wide organizations.

 
   

 

QUALITY CONTROL

Every ATL bladder goes through rigorous quality control tests including a pressure test and a stress test to ensure a strong and leak-proof product.

ATL Quality Control

EXPERT SHIPPING

Every ATL collapsible bladder is folded, hand packed and shipped in either a heat treated, skidded re-usable crate or a heavy duty tri-wall container.

 
 
   

ATL Disaster Relief Pillow Bladders
Over the years, ATL's Flex-Tanks™ have been used in hundreds of emergency response and relief efforts due to unfortunate hardships such as hurricanes, tsunamis, floods, fires, oil spills, earthquakes and military conflicts. These bladders can be used to store valuable drinking water, collect waste and chemicals or serve as a fuel source for heavy equipment such as power generators. Many ATL bladders are in stock for immediate delivery.

“Supporting scientific research in one of the most extreme environments on the planet requires a lot of technical expertise and kit. At British Antarctic Survey we do our best to select equipment that can be transported efficiently over the ice and can perform well at our deep-field research camps. This year we will use ATL fuel bladders to support an ambitious science project that will use hot-water drilling technology to collect water and sediment samples from a lake that’s buried 3km beneath the ice. For more information about that project visit www.ellsworth.org.uk
