Frac tanks are incredibly useful storage vessels that can be utilized across a wide range of industries. These steel tanks can store both liquids and solids that range from manure to saline water and pretty much everything in between. They are also incredibly easy to move around from one place to another on or off your site. In fact, a frac tank is designed to easily attach to a truck or a tractor. Frac tanks are also available in multiple sizes that range from 8,4000 gallons storage capacity to 21,000 gallons storage capacity. They also come in various types in order to store your solids or liquids in the proper manner.

There are actually six (6) different types of frac tanks. For example, mix frac tanks are designed to literally mix the liquid materials that you store within them through the use of an electronic mixing component that can be controlled by an operator. Another type of frac tanks is the closed top frac tank. In essence, they are liquid based storage tanks that contain a flat top. Closed top frac tanks typically range from 8,400 gallons to 21,000 gallons storage capacity. The open top frac tank has an open top in order to make it significantly easier to monitor the levels of liquid stored inside the tank. It also makes it easier to clean them.

Speaking of cleaning frac tanks, only a professional company that has both the experience and knowledge base should attempt the task. Otherwise you are taking the unnecessary risk of damaging the tank. Damaged tanks can lead to leaks, which can lead to environmental hazards. Our next type of frac tanks is called the double wall tank. They are designed to have multiple compartments in order to safely store multiple liquids in the same tank. Open top weir tanks are engineered to separate contaminants from certain types of liquids through a system of baffles that are installed inside the tank.

Gas buster frac tanks are the perfect storage container for stabilizing the viscosity of liquids when they are being drilled due to the fact that they provide gases with the ability to escape from the tank. As mentioned above, no matter what type of frac tank you are using, or what you are storing inside of the frac tank, it is incredibly important to have it cleaned and inspected by a professional environmental company. It is also important to have your frac tanks cleaned and inspected on a regular basis in order to ensure that they remain in good working order.

Otherwise you are taking the unnecessary risk of causing leaks that can cause a great deal of damage to the surround area and the environment as a whole.
