  • (IMPORTANT: Minor shipping damage is more noticeable on jacketed
    tanks due to the uniform finish and the nature of the jacket. Extra
    lugs are installed on jacketed vessels for securing the tanks during
    shipment and they are normally palletized and shipped on a flat bed.
    Even so, minor cosmetic damage can occur and must be considered normal.
