A tanker manlid, also known as a hatch cover, is a component of tanker trucks or railcars used to provide access to the interior of the tank for loading, unloading, inspection, or maintenance. The manlid is typically located on the top of the tank and is designed to provide a secure seal to prevent leaks or spills during transport. It is commonly made of metal, such as aluminum or stainless steel, and may be hinged or removable, depending on the specific design and requirements.

Manlids may have various features to enhance their functionality and safety. For example, they may be equipped with gaskets or seals to ensure a tight seal when closed, locking mechanisms to prevent unauthorized access, and safety devices such as pressure relief valves to prevent over-pressurization of the tank. Tanker manlids are important components of tanker trucks or railcars and must be properly maintained to ensure their safe and reliable operation. Regular inspection and cleaning of the manlid and its components, such as gaskets and seals, can help to prevent leaks and ensure a secure seal. In addition, proper training of personnel on the proper use and maintenance of manlids can help to prevent accidents and ensure the safety of both personnel and the environment.
