Frac Storage Tank Information
FAQ: What makes a flexible frac tank different from standard steel fract tanks?
Question: What is flexible frac tank? What makes these tanks different from the standard steel frac tanks? I am interested in getting a larger capacity for my flexible tanks and I was wondering if this would be a good option for my facility. Are these equipped for operation in my oil field location?
Answer: The Flexible Frac Tank is an alternative frac water storage tank. Rather than being made from steel, these tanks are made from a robust, flexible urethane material that helps to contain frac water and other chemical mixtures during your fracking operation.
Rather than have to operate with rigid materials, these tanks offer a flexible alternative that allows for bulk water storage in a single storage tank.
Flexible Frac Tank Advantages
When compared to a standard steel frac tank, the flexible unit can offer several unique advantages to help successfully store your materials. These advantages include the following:
- Capacities up to 210,000 gallons (approx. 5,000 BBL)
- 50% Higher Heat Retention than Steel
- Less Trucking and Transportation Costs
- Smaller Footprint
- Fast Deployment & Installation on your Site
In addition, these tanks also provide less carbon oxide emissions being emitted into the atmosphere due to the lower number of transportation trucks and less onsite truck usage occurring during your project.
Flexible Frac Water Tank Features
As mentioned above, the flexible frac water storage tank is made from a urethane material that is equipped to support the weight of the liquid stored inside the tank as well as various materials stored within the unit. Typical specifications for this frac tank will include the following:
- Urethane Material
- Typical Fittings: Fill/Discharge Ports, Floor Drain Ports, Hoses, Diameter Vents
- Capacities: 5,000 to 210,000 gallons
