General Description

Gardner manufactured helium tanks assure the world’s largest road, air, and ocean transport along with stationary storage.

Our UN Portable tanks are available in capacities from 3,785 L (1,000 gal) to 56,781 L (15,000 gal), (the largest for highway use in the world). Our stationary helium storage tanks have a 12,870 L (3,400 gal) to 128,000 L (33,818 gal) capacity, with larger or smaller units available on special order.

Most prominent characteristic of Gardner’s high-quality transport vessels are the 41,640 L (11,000 gal) UN Portable tanks in 40 ft ISO frame, the most widely used containerized liquid helium tanks in the world. They ensure reliability, longevity, performance and are the most economical tanks for transport by road or ocean.

These containers also comply with a multitude of international codes and standards. Like our other equipment, they are ruggedly built and perform effectively in a wide range of demanding environmental conditions around the world.
