Some of Major Clients

Vessels & Storage

I.C.E has a fleet of 1050 Litre Transportable vessels, along with a range of 499L, 450L, 200L, 60L & 20L Transportable Vessels. These vessels are owned and maintained by I.C.E, filled at our Dandenong South facility and then shipped throughout Australia and New Zealand. In most cases we supply these as a ‘swap and go’ type arrangement, much the same as your common BOC bottle.

Once the empty vessel is returned to our facility, prior to it being re-filled, it is visually inspected and any repairs or touch up work required is carried out. At regular intervals we use a qualified inspector to complete a through visual inspection and supply us with a written report.

All our 1050L vessels are fitted with a PRV, ½” ball valve and dry break quick connect for liquid extraction, ½” ball valve and dry break quick connect for blanket pressure supply and float level indication. In certain cases we use different brands of dry break quick connects, depending on the customers requirement.

Specified staff members hold a current licence to drive a vehicle containing dangerous goods and are experts on the current requirements and procedures involved in shipping portable vessels around the country.

I.C.E also has qualified, professional personnel who visit sites throughout Australia to support the specialised transfer of gas odorant and assist in Emergency.

As this product range is unique, our customers are put at ease with the knowledge that a product specialist is available 24 hours.

International Chemicals Engineering (I.C.E) offer a range of spill response equipment specifically designed for the Gas Odorant Sector. Our range of custom designed spill kits have been designed with operator safety in mind. 

I.C.E also has a fully transportable ’emergency response recovery cabinet’ (ERC) which can be dispatched to anywhere in Australia. This cabinet can be used in the event of a leaking vessel emitting potent odour. Our ERC recovery cabinet provides a total odour control response for gas odorant – we place the vessel inside the cabinet to contain the odour and it is sent to our facility in Dandenong for repair in our controlled environment facility.
