HIPPOTANK units cannot be stacked one on top of the other during transport or storage.
(See also § 2 “UN Labelling”)
11.1 make sure to leave a minimal amount of empty space in order to prevent product leaks or emission of vapours caused by the expansion of the contained materials due to the temperature rises during transportation. The maximum amount of product that can be carried is shown (in litres) in the following table.
This table takes into account a filling temperature of 15° C and a max. shipping temperature of 55° the maximum filling percentage cannot exceed 94 %.

12 Transfer of IBC's contents:
12.1 Before beginning the transfer it is necessary to set up an adequate (equipotential) connection between the metal cabinet of the transfer unit and the other metal tank in which the product will be transferred, using for example a lead with crocodile clips.
12.2 Never smoke while transferring flammable liquids and Never use naked flames in the transfer area.
12.3 If some diesel oil spills on the ground, use inert absorbent materials (e.g. sand, not rags or sawdust) to soak up the liquid and then scooped up with shovels (metal shovels must be no-spark). The collected material must then be disposed of in suitable tanks, complying with the current waste disposal regulations (see chapter 15)
12.4 after the transfer has been carried out, remove any residue of diesel oil left on the IBC and dispose of said residues properly together with all the polluted object and equipment used for clean up.
12.5 To carry out the transfer follow the instructions below in the exact order in which they are given (diagram in § 8.3):
- Check that the switch (12) on the motor pump (11) is in the “O” position.
- Enable the main supply line by means of the circuit breaker (§ 8.3)
- Unfold the rubber hose (16) and insert the nozzle (17) in the destination tank after locking the lever in the "open" position.
- Rotate the cocks (10) and (14) in “open” position” (1)
- Start the electric motor pump by moving the switch (12) in "I" position
- Carry out the transfer within 2 minutes after the motor pump start-up
- Check that the desired filling percentage has been reached or wait for the overflow click (with automatic nozzles).
After the transfer has been completed, carry out the following operations in the same order provided here:
- Switch off the main switch on the pump body (Pos. “0”).
- Rotate the cock (10) in "CLOSED" position (1)
- Drain out some more liquid by pulling and holding the nozzle (17) trigger quickly, until all the remaining pressure in the delivery hose has been discharged.
- Rotate the cock (14) in "CLOSED" position” (1)
ES/EC-HT980.00 © 01/02/2008 Page.18 /31
- Roll up the hose (16) and replace it in the metal cabinet, hanging the nozzle (17) to its support.
- Disconnect voltage from the main supply line by means of the circuit breaker.
(1) In the “CLOSED” position the cock's lever or wing knob is rotated so that it forms a 90 degree angle with the hose; In the “OPEN” position the lever or wing knob of the cock is rotated so that it is parallel to the hose.
In any case, do not fill the destination tank excessively.
Always leave an adequate minimum empty space to allow fluid to
When the vehicle is running the power supply line (connected to the
battery terminals) must never be live. Deactivate it using the circuit
It is strictly forbidden to replace the removable bipolar connector with a permanent connection to the vehicle's battery. It is also forbidden to set up loose connections to the vehicle battery (e.g. crocodile clips); the sparks this connection may generate are not only dangerous in presence of flammable materials, but also for the dangers they pose for the vehicle's electric parts. To prevent the production of dangerous sparks, never plug or unplug the unit when the power supply is switched on.
The user must maintain the IBC and all its devices and equipment in good condition and working order, and in particular:
• check that the IBC is watertight, looking out in particular for fluid leaking from the filler neck (3), the cocks (10) and (14), the fittings of the priming pipe (9) and delivery pipe (13).
• check that all hazardous substance identification markings on the outside of the tank (e.g.“UN 1202”) are in good conditions (legible), otherwise replace them with newer ones.
• check that the ADR danger labels are in good condition; if they are worn, they must be replaced with new labels of the same type.
ES/EC-HT980.00 © 01/02/2008 Page.19 /31
• Check that signs indicating the lifting points are in good condition, if they are worn, they must be replaced with new signs of the same type, affixed in the same position
14 CLEANING The IBC and the transfer device must be kept clean both from external agents (dirt, dust and so on), and from accidental spillage of hazardous material as a result of filling, leaks and transfers. Use only non-corrosive products for cleaning metal parts and for all cables and plastic materials in general. Choose neutral or slightly alkaline degreasants. Steam-jet cleaning equipment (pulivapor), may be used provided the steam jet is not directly aimed at components of the electrical system or to the tags/sticker labels applied on the IBC body and the metal cabinet and on the metal cabinet that houses the transfer device)
The decommissioned IBC is a hazardous waste that must be properly disposed of as follows:
- removing the residual diesel oil and transfer it to suitable tanks. Contact the waste disposal company for further information on the most suitable tanks for waste disposal.
- Handing over the IBC and all other tanks, if any, to a suitable waste disposal company registered in the Waste Disposal Companies register and possessing the required qualifications for hazardous waste disposal.
16 TAMPERING In addition to the provisions of chapter 18, no tampering or alteration to the IBC's electric transfer device is allowed;
in particular: it is strictly forbidden to:
• replace the socket-plug power supply system with a permanent connection or with such loose connection systems unable to prevent the sparks generated by live connections.
• replace any part of the equipment with non original ones, lacking the Manufacturer warranty for pressure burst testing.
• Modifying the calibration of the decompression device
ES/EC-HT980.00 © 01/02/2008 Page.20 /31
• Install additional venting equipment
17 ACCIDENTS: If the IBC’s housing and/or protective structure, and/or any of its devices and equipment are damaged in any way, the IBC must undergo a mandatory special inspection by the authorized inspection institution and a new test report must be issued. The next inspection will have to be carried out within 30 months from the date of this special inspection's report, although the 60 months maximum usage period still applies (see § 3.1).
18 SPARE PARTS The necessary modifications or replacement of parts of the tank following damage, accidents or tampering can be carried out exclusively at EMILIANA SERBATOI srl plants or by our authorized service centres as all these operations are considered “reconditioning” and, as such, requires reissue of the testing report (see §§ 3.1 and chapter 17).
For what concerns the transfer motor pump, refer to the use and maintenance bulletin supplied with the installed pump.

According to the ADR standard, the IBCs are classified as simple packages of dangerous goods, and therefore no ADR approval of the vehicle is required pursuant to MOT – B058 circular of 18/06/99
The following recommendations shall in any case be complied with:
21.1 The IBC shall correspond to ADR provisions as far as carried goods labelling and signs are concerned:
21.1.1 LABELLING The IBC shall feature two ADR diamond-shaped dangerous goods labels identifying the dangerous goods transported (type 3 - flammable)
21.1.2 The UN ID of carried goods (UN 1202) shall be clearly visible and easily readable on the IBC.
21.2 N EVER begin transport if leaks of hazardous materials or visible damage to the IBC structure and/or service equipment have been found and ascertained.
21.3 The IBC must be kept clean and all residues of the hazardous substance transported must be removed from its exterior.
21.4 The IBC must be fixed stably and securely to the vehicle bed using cables, belts, chains, quick couplings or any other system that can prevent the IBC from moving or sliding around on the load bed.
21.5 The area around the safety valve (4) on the IBC must be kept clear to prevent hindrance by other parts of the load or any other element that may hinder its normal operation.
21.6 All precautions must be taken to prevent the accumulation of electrostatic charges during transport; therefore, we recommend installation of an anti static device on the vehicle chassis (e.g. chains or anti-static belts), touching the ground, and it is also necessary to make sure that a suitable electrical connection with the metal cabinet of the transfer device is prepared, This way, any electrostatic charges that may accumulate on the IBC during transport can be discharged to the ground through the chassis, reducing the risk of shocks or sparks during handling.
21.7 During transportation of flammable liquids, NEVER carry rags or other easily flammable objects on the vehicle.
ES/EC-HT980.00 © 01/02/2008 Page.23 /31
21.8 Both the cut-off cocks (10) and (14) shall be kept closed during transportation.
21.9 Remember that for the transportation of dangerous goods, no overload tolerance is admitted by the current Highway Code with respect to the max. Gross Vehicle Mass assigned to the vehicle during type approval and stated on its registration document. The IBC constitutes a significantly concentrated load in any case and in particular in relation to the fully loaded weight of light trucks. Therefore, positioning the IBC too far forward or too far back on the load bed can cause an overload on the front or rear axle. This could be detrimental to driving safety as far as tyres, brakes and grip are concerned.
21.10 Careful driving is recommended (especially in the event of partial loads) as the movement of the liquid masses inside the IBC, even if restrained by the peculiar internal geometry of the IBC, can decrease the vehicle's grip and road holding capabilities.
21.11 The vehicle must be equipped with the number and type (capacity) of fire extinguishers stated in the ADR regulations (see also §§ 22.3 – 22.4).
21.12 Overland transportation of hazardous goods is regulated by ADR and also by special provisions stated in Ministry of Transport circular letters, that regulate the different types of vehicle bodies allowed: Fixed body vehicles (vans, trucks with fixed tank , flat tanks, etc.) no authorisation is required for transporting packages of goods in this type of vehicles, however it is mandatory to use suitable load fastening means and compliance to any applicable special provision pursuant to 3.2.1 ADR (Table A, Column 16), and none for diesel oil UN 1202.
Transportation of hazardous goods in packages on roll-off or demountable body vehicles requires body approval pursuant to circular no. 4790 – MOT2/C of 12/12 2001 (See Note #). Handling is allowed on empty bodies only.
ES/EC-HT980.00 © 01/02/2008 Page.24 /31
Use of vehicles with tipping bodies for transportation of hazardous goods in packages has been openly declared forbidden by the Ministry of Transport on more than one occasion (See Note #)
NOTE: (#) Although circular no. 4790 – MOT2/C of December 12, 2001 refers to and accepts almost all the provisions of previous circular no. B083 of September 22, 1998, it does not contain nor cites any reference to the circular's scope of application which, in the first draft of the aforesaid circular, did not include transports exempted pursuant to 22.214.171.124 ADR. Currently the Ministry has not issued any official statement to the effect that the apparent difference between the letter of the two circulars represents the actual intention of the Ministry to extend the circular's scope of application to all transports, regardless of their being eligible for exemption, such being the case for a single IBC carrying UN 1202 diesel oil. EMILIANA SERBATOI srl informs the users about all applicable and reference standards, however we wish to point out that we have no authority or status whatsoever to provide users with the official and authentic interpretation of these regulations. The duly informed user has the sole responsibility for any choice made basing on his/her personal knowledge, evaluations and interpretations of the standards. In any case, full compliance to all warnings described above will make it possible for the user to work safely, as they have been drafted according to the strictest interpretation of the aforesaid regulations.
22 PARTIAL EXEMPTIONS:
22.1 When transporting dangerous substances in quantities below certain limits (for UN 1202 diesel fuel the limit is 1000 litres), the ADR standard provides for a series of exemptions to the provisions that would otherwise be applied. (1) This regime, called partial ADR exemption regime, is applied also to UN 1202 diesel fuel (up to 1000 litres).
22.2 RULES WHICH ARE NOT APPLIED: If the Partial ADR exemption regime applies:
• The driver is not required to have any ADR special licence.
• Application of the orange “dangerous load” panels on the front and rear of the vehicle is not mandatory
• Passengers are allowed on board of the vehicle in addition to the crew members which are always allowed (2)
• Compliance to ADR on-board safety rules and requirements regarding the dangerous materials carried (trem-card) is not required
• No special personal or vehicle equipment is required
ES/EC-HT980.00 © 01/02/2008 Page.25 /31
• The manufacturer is not obliged to appoint the Transport Security Authorised Consultant (Legislative Decree no. 40/2000).
22.3 RESIDUAL REQUIREMENTS:
The following requirements and obligations apply in all cases:
• All IBC and packaging used shall be type approved
• There must be at least one 2 kg ABC powder fire extinguisher. suitable for extinguishing fires in the engine; the extinguisher shall be easily accessible, sealed and inspected once every six months as stated in the tag.
• The portable lighting device (if any) shall be anti-spark (non-metallic)
• The ADR transport document is mandatory, it shall be duly filled up and it shall include the documents detailing the quantities of the hazardous goods actually transported, necessary to prove that the maximum amount to be granted exemption has not been exceeded.
• It is obligatory to comply to the maximum allowed filling percentage (see chapter. 11).
• It is necessary to check that the IBC is not damaged, especially for what concerns closing and sealing devices.
• The IBC shall be kept clean and any residue of hazardous goods shall be removed from the exterior.
• Always ensure that the IBC is stable and protected from any unexpected shock or movement on the load bed, guaranteeing visibility of danger labels.
• The danger labels shall be in perfect status, replace them if they are worn.
• In case of spillage of dangerous materials on the load bed, thoroughly clean the load bed.
• Always ensure adequate training to the shipment, transportation, loading and unloading staff; training shall be proportionate to the staff's responsibilities and tasks, especially as regards the specific dangers incurred by carried materials during transport or loading/unloading operations. Training shall make use of adequate documents, which shall be properly updated every time there are changes or updates to the relevant regulations (ADR or Highway Code). (3)
(1) If the vehicle is used to carry other dangerous goods belonging to different ADR Classes and packing groups, the maximum limit for exemption may be different than 1000 litres. In this case, please refer to chapter 1.1.3 of ADR to calculate the maximum amount of dangerous goods that can be carried.
(2) Please remember that, pursuant to the current Italian national laws and regulations, it is in any case forbidden to carry on board a truck any individual who does not carry out a task related to goods loading/unloading/transportation, and such connection must be easily and clearly verifiable
ES/EC-HT980.00 © 01/02/2008 Page.26 /31
(3) This means that the driver's possession of the ADR special licence does not guarantee, by itself, that ADR provisions have been complied with in case any amendment or change to ADR regulation has taken place after the licence has been released. In this case the Manufacturer must provide the driver with adequate additional training and record this additional training in the driver's personal file.
the following prohibitions apply in all cases:
• No smoking (on board the vehicle and near it)
• No tampering with the carried packages/goods
• Never use any naked flame for lighting (e.g. cigarette lighters)
• Never transport packages (or IBCs) if any leak has been detected or if the package/IBC is not properly fastened on the load bed
• Never drive the vehicle in tunnels which feature the no access to hazardous goods sign at the entrance.
• Never use the IBC after the Initial testing report or the periodic testing report have expired.
22.4 If the total amount of hazardous materials carried exceeds the limits set forth in point 126.96.36.199 of the A DR agreement (e.g. 1000 litres for Diesel fuel, or ), no exemption from the ADR provisions is applicable. Please refer to the official ADR Agreement text, to the driver's training and knowledge (remember that the driver shall hold an ADR special licence in any case) and ADR obligations for the manufacturer in terms of staff training and appointment (if required) of a Consultant for supervision of dangerous goods transportation, pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 40 of February 4, 2000, or, in all cases required, the procedures needed to request exemption from appointment.
23 PERSONAL GEAR AND EQUIPMENT: Even if the Partial ADR Exemptions are applicable, it is recommended to use the following suitable Individual Protection Equipment (IPE), which are also required to comply with the workplace accidents prevention and health legislation in force
(Presidential Decree no.547/55 – Legislative Decree no 626/94):
- 1 pair of work gloves
- 1 pair of anti-skid boots
- complete eye protection goggles
- Pure, fresh water to wash the eyes in case of contamination by hazardous substances.
If the transportation is not exempted from ADR provisions (e.g. simultaneous transportation of 920 litres of diesel oil with 1 Hippotank+ five 25 Litre canisters, total 1020 litres) then it is necessary to have all the IPE required by the carried material's safety instructions (trem-card) which shall be available on board the vehicle (Chapter26).
ES/EC-HT980.00 © 01/02/2008 Page.27 /31
24 VEHICLE GEAR AND EQUIPMENT: Even if the Partial ADR exemption regime applies, it is nevertheless recommended to have the following equipment on board the vehicle: a sufficient quantity of an inert absorbent material (e.g. sand), a tool with which to scrape it up (e.g. non-sparking shovel or spade), somewhere to store it (e.g. packing III or better drum/bin). Conversely, if the Transportation is not exempted from ADR provisions, all the safety equipment and devices required by the transported hazardous substance safety instructions (Chapter 26) shall be available.
25 ADR TRANSPORT DOCUMENT (T.D.):
25.1 According to ADR the Transport Document (T.D.) is mandatory. The T.D. shall contain and explicitly state:
a) Consignor name and address
b) Receiver(s) name and address(es)
c) The UN abbreviation followed by the UN ID of the substance (for diesel oil: 1202)
d) Official designation of the carried material (e.g. DIESEL FUEL, or DIESEL OIL)
e) The ADR Class of the substance (for diesel oil: 3)
f) The packing group of the material (for diesel oil: III) Example of line containing the information in c), d), e), f): “UN 1202 DIESEL FUEL, 3, III “
g) Number and description of the packages (e.g. N° 1 IBC 31H2.)
h) The total amount of dangerous material (e.g. 920 litres) If the transportation is subject to ADR exemption, the amount to be used when calculating the exemption must also be provided, followed by the formula: “Transport does not exceed the exemption limits outlined in chapter 188.8.131.52 of ADR”
25.2 The ADR T.D. does not, in any way, replace any other document that may be required by applicable regulations (e.g. packing list for tax purposes)
25.3 ADR does not use nor supply a standard form for the T.D.; Any facsimile form can be used as long as it contains the required information.
ES/EC-HT980.00 © 01/02/2008 Page.28 /31
The packing list itself can represent a valid ADR T.D. provided it contains all information required in point § 25.1.
25.4 The T.D. can be quite complex if the IBC is gradually emptied at a number of intermediary destinations as in this case each leg of the transport's route will feature different quantities of transported goods. What is more, it is not unusual to have to carry 2 IBCs at the same time whose total weight, at the outset, exceeds the limits for exemptions but falls within these limits when one of the two tanks is totally emptied. in this case either of the following documents can be used:
- different transport documents, to be issued when leaving each of the intermediate stations where the load is emptied, or
- a single document, drafted to take into account the reduction in the load, with space reserved for the subsequent recalculation of the exact amounts remaining after each consignment has been made. EMILIANA SERBATOI srl can provide, upon users' request, a user guide to filling the Transport Document, which focuses especially on this kind of document and takes into account gradual load reductions. This guide provides a simple, informative aid for staff, without attempting to cover all the possible situations that could actually occur. It does not represent a full description of the applicable legal requirements, nor does it replace the mandatory provisions of Chapter 5.4 OF ADR.
