2018 ITCA Symposium and Party

This year’s 2018 party provided some insights into our industry and highlighted new regulations around the ELD mandate. We were given some analysis on the quickly changing industry (major container lines consolidated from 20 companies into only 8 over the last eight years).

The best part was getting face to face time with our long time vendors and customers. As each year brings fresh faces, and makes me feel a little older, I value the friendships that we have created in the industry. Here is to another great year!

West Texas Sand Mines Require Special Sand Chassis

The fracking industry continues to pick up steam again as a resurgence of oil and gas drilling is driving activity. A major component of this industry is the fine sand that is required to create fissures in the well. As the wells become deeper and longer, the tonnage of sand used is increasing almost double fold. Companies are finding it more profitable to use the coarser grain of West Texas sand than to travel long distances to Minnesota and Wisconsin for a finer grade. With new Texas sand mines coming on line in the near future, this industry will remain very active for the long term future. The sand companies are beginning to require drivers to use the more efficient container chassis to haul their containerized loads instead of flatbeds that require extra time to strap and bind loads to haul over the road.

The twist locks secure the container to the chassis in one quick movement saving the driver and companies time loading and unloading and eliminating the need for straps and binders. We have these twist locks in stock available for sale as well. Call (832) 433-7114 for more information.

If you are interested in purchasing equipment, please contact our offices today for options to increase your capacity and efficiency hauling containerized sand (sand boxes, sand containers).  Email me at sandra@innovaindustries.net or call (832) 433-7114.

Sand Container Trailer Chassis

If your company is hauling frac sand for the fracking industry, Innova Industries can provide a trailer to meet your needs. This used drop deck chassis was originally engineered to haul 20 ft. ISO tank containers for bulk liquid loads. Per our customer requests, we can fabricate (2) extra bolsters with twist locks. This has 8 pins to accommodate two (8 ft. )  frac sand boxes or sand cans. They are also retractable twist locks, so you can still haul 20 ft containers as well. The lower center of gravity (40″-41″) allows it to move these top heavy loads safely out in the oilfield or fracking site. Call us today if you want more information at (832) 433-7114 or email sandra@innovaindustries.net.

3AX Chassis For Sale (Tri-Axle Chassis)

If you’re looking to increase your company’s customer base, you should be considering adding tri-axle chassis, 3AX chassis, used 3AX container chassis to your fleet. These heavy duty container chassis have a much deeper neck and the main I-beams are constructed of a higher tensile strength steel, again much deeper than a traditional 40 ft. chassis or 20 ft. chassis.

The chassis have three axles which allow you to load up to 41,000-42,000 lbs (depending on your state laws) onto the rear axle versus the traditional 34,000 lbs of your tandem counterparts. Also our used tri-axle chassis tare weight is under 10,000 lbs. which is a full 1,500 lbs lighter than other manufacturers.

Refurbished Drop Deck ISO Tank Chassis

Innova Industries loves projects that involve bringing new life into used equipment. We’ve been refurbishing a batch of drop deck ISO tank chassis  for a few customer projects. The before and afters can be really amazing to witness.

This unit had aluminum wheels, which cannot be painted a crisp white like steel wheels. Instead we use a chemical cleaner and hand brush process which cleans off the grime and restores them to a former luster. Of course the steel frame is sand blasted to bare metal, then we paint the units to the customer’s request, and seal with a top coat.

BEFORE – UNIT 435003
