Stop leaks from overturned tanker trucks, railcars, and other large vessels
Accidents, punctures, and corrosion are facts of life. With a Tanker Tourniquet, however, you can minimize environmental damage, protect lives and save the load.
Simple, effective device compresses a chemical resistant, flexible pad against splits or punctures to stop leaks. When a spill occurs, the device is centered over the rupture and working from the top, pressure is applied to the device onto the tanker surface. This effectively forces the envelope of compression material into every crevice of the split.
The Ultra-Tanker Tourniquet can be used to:
- Seal splits
- Plug punctures
- Stop spillage
- Protect the environment
- Protect lives
- Prevent total loss of the load
- Reduce clean-up costs
- Eight magnets, spark resistant assembly.
- For use with ferrous vessels.
- Pressure Pump included.
- Stainless steel backing plate.
- Neoprene sealing bladder.
- Maximum sealing area: 3½" x 16".

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the pump for?
The pump is used to inflate the sealing bladder. This can, in some cases, provide a better seal.
What's the red thing in the photo?
The Ultra-Tanker Tourniquet comes with a carrying case. That “red thing” is the carrying case folded up.
How many magnets are used on the Tanker Tourniquet?
There are a total of eight rare earth, spark-resistant magnets used on the Ultra-Tanker Tourniquet to ensure that it stays attached to the tanker.
Can the Ultra-Tanker Tourniquet be used with non-ferrous vessels?
No, the Ultra-Tanker Tourniquet will only work with ferrous vessels.
What is the construction of the sealing pad?
The sealing pad on the Tanker Tourniquet is a material called EPDM and it offers excellent chemical resistance.
