Choosing A Frac Tank

Invest In The Right Equipment

Choosing a frac tank depends largely on the project itself, and what materials will be stored in the tank. Investing in the right equipment, including frac tanks, means that your business will have an asset for years to come.

Aside from what you're storing in the tank, it's also important to note the project itself. Job sites in cold climates may want to look for an insulated tank, or one with an internal manifold to protect the contents and pipes from freezing. Projects that will be using corrosive materials should choose an acid tank, while other projects may want to choose a double wall tank for protection in case of spills.

The number of frac tanks you'll need also depends on the project itself. The amount of materials can vary depending on the size and extent of the project, so it's important to choose the number of tanks that will be beneficial to you. A general rule of thumb when deciding is to over estimate, as it's better to have more space available than not enough.


New vs Used Frac Tanks

Not sure whether to buy a new tank or used one? There are pros and cons to each option, and if you're not sure what's right for your business then let us know and we can help.

Typically, a brand new tank tends to be more expensive compared to a used one. New tanks are also hard to come by recently due to various shortages on materials, especially steel. A new tank does guarantee that nothing else has been stored in it, although used tanks are always cleaned in between in each use.

Used tanks have the advantage of being less expensive upfront and can be relined as needed throughout their lifetimes. A used frac tank is a great investment for many businesses that will regularly need large capacity storage.

Buying vs Renting

Buying a frac tank can be an asset to your business, especially if you plan to use it for an extended period of time, or you will use it on multiple projects. Renting a tank on the other hand, is beneficial for short term projects but can quickly build up costs on projects that get delayed or will take more than a few months to complete.
