Fluid tanks used for transportation of vegetable oils. The tanks may still contain some leftover fluids.
High Density Polyethylene in metal frame.
Measures will vary, the ones found here are 1000x1200x1200 mm. (contents 1000 liters)
These thin translucent plastic tanks are strong, because they are contained in a metal frame that is fitted on a standard 1 by 1 m pallet for transport.
The 4mm polyethylene can be welded together with heat, this way you can combine these tanks into bigger volumes.
