ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Tanker manufacturer Polar Corporation has come out with its first trailer for the propane industry.
The Polar NexGen MC-331 highway tanker was designed for durability and low life-cycle costs, the company announced. Polar claims it’s the first highway transport tanker with a powder-coated barrel, delivering up to three times the life of traditional paint.
The company says the coating limits nicks to the point of impact and in most cases, eliminates the need to refurbish and repaint the barrel every three to five years.
The trailer features all-stainless piping and aluminum or stainless decking and fenders for further corrosion protection.
“This trailer builds on the success of the NexGen propane bobtail introduced by Polar earlier this year,” said Ted Fick, president and CEO of Polar Corporation. “It extends the benefits of the NexGen bobtail to over-the-road propane transporters.”
The new trailer is available through Polar dealers with a wide variety of suspensions, axles, rollover protection and central tire inflation options.
