The 'Special Low-Torsion body mounting system' for tank bodies is recommendable due to their strongness, torsion-resistant design, in particular for 'Off-Road' operation under rough cross-country conditions.
The elastic connection between the truck chassis and the sub-frame provides a torsion-absorbing function.
This arrangement absorbs any stresses passing from chassis to tank.
The sub-frame is mounted to the truck frame in a way to ensure equal load distribution.
Substructure etc. hot-dip galvanized (additionally painted on customers request)
Otherwise mounted according to truck supplier’s 'Assembling Instruction'.
The tank itself is supported in tank saddles which are bolted on the reinforced longitudinal frame members with heavy duty rubber mountings in front.
