Single Hull Tankers Single Hull Tankers have only 1 outer layer which is watertight and this layer runs throughout the structure of the vessel.
GT96 This design designed by Gaztransport consists of primary and secondary membranes made up of a material Invar which has no thermal contraction.
One of the biggest juice tankers is the Brazilian tanker, Carlos Fischer. Tankers are divided into separate tanks into which the cargo is pumped via a pipeline system. Here the gap between both the hulls is used as ballast tanks for maintaining the vessels stability.

It consists of various tanks which are coated with specialized coatings such as Phenolic epoxy or stainless steel or zinc paint.
Once the first layers of containers have been loaded and the hatches closed, extra layers are loaded on top of the hatches. Types of Hatch Covers: There are different types of watertight hatch covers used in bulk carriers, and a general knowledge of functionality and usability of each type is necessary for a designer to make the right choice of hatch cover for a particular bulk carrier.
