Granular and lump sulfur’s 40ft and 20ft container’s capacity in ton are determined in this page with some other important data about the number of jumbo bags that can be loaded in them.
What Is the Maximum Capacity of 20ft Container of Granular Sulfur?
Granular sulfur’s 20ft container’s capacity is between 24MT to 26.5MT.
It means that at least 24MT of granular sulfur can be loaded in a 20ft container and the highest amount of sulfur that can be loaded in a 20ft container is 26.5MT.
It is worth mentioning that the maximum capacity of a 20ft container of lump sulfur can vary depending on the weight limit regulations and density of the sulfur being transported.
However, generally speaking, a 20ft container can hold up to 24-26.5 metric tons of granular sulfur.
It is important to note that the weight limit can vary based on the regulations in the specific country or region where the container is being transported.
What Is the Maximum Capacity of 20ft Container of lump Sulfur?
Lump sulfur’s 20ft container’s capacity is between 26.5MT to 28MT.
It means that at least 26.5MT of lump sulfur can be loaded in a 20ft container and the highest amount of lump sulfur that can be loaded in a 20ft container is 28MT.
The amount of lump sulfur that can be loaded into a 20ft container depends on the weight regulations and the density of the sulfur.
Typically, a 20ft container can carry between 25-28 metric tons of lump sulfur, but this can vary depending on the regulations in the country or region where the container is being transported. It is important to consider the weight of the container itself when calculating the maximum capacity.
How Many Jumbo Bags Can Be Loaded in A 20ft Container of Sulfur?
If we assume that each jumbo bag of sulfur weighs 1 metric ton (1,000 kg) then the number of jumbo bags that can be loaded in a 20ft container of sulfur is around 24 to 26 for granular sulfur and around 26 to 28 for lump sulfur.
The common size of jumbo bags for both granular and lump sulfur transport is 1MT equal to 1,000 kg.
Is It Common to Load Granular or Lump Sulfur in 40ft Containers?!
No, it isn’t common to load granular or lump sulfur in 40ft containers for transportation.
Both granular and lump sulfur are commonly transported in 20ft containers by sea or by rail.
The reason is that approximately 32MT of sulfur can be loaded in one single 40ft container!
When we can load around 24 to 26.5 MT of granular sulfur and around 26.5 to 28 MT of lump sulfur in one 20ft container, it is not affordable and reasonable to apply 40ft containers at all, which are more expensive and huge than 20ft containers.
