Industry Uses for Frac Tanks

Learn more about how frac tanks are used in the Oil & Gas, Construction, Agriculture, and Environmental Industries.

Oil & Gas Industry

Known for their use in fracking projects, frac tanks are beneficial to Oil & Gas Industry applications for storing sand, water, drill site fluid, drilling mud and chemicals. The different types of tanks can be beneficial throughout specific stages of the process. For example, a flat top tank is often used for storing fresh water used in the drilling process, as well as flow back water produced throughout the process. An acid tank is used for acidic chemicals, while a mud tank holds drilling mud suspended and ready to be pumped down the well.

A used frac tank is a great storage solution for:

  • Chemical Storage, such as Hydrochloric Acid or Hydraulic Fluid
  • Mud Storage for Drilling Mud or Drilling Fluid
  • Fluid Storage Requiring Separation
  • Fresh and Dirty Water Storage Throughout Various Processes
  • Diesel Fuel Storage

Construction Industry

Dewatering solutions and onsite water and fuel storage are among the top uses for frac tanks on construction projects. Pump unwanted water into a used frac tank during the dewatering process for safe storage. Keep fuel onsite for quick refueling of heavy machinery to keep your operation running on time. A storage solution for water means construction workers have access to water for concrete mixing, site clean-up, drilling site suppression and more.

Frac tanks are also used in hydrostatic testing on pipeline construction projects. Hydrostatic testing is a process used to check the structural integrity of a natural gas pipeline that involves pumping water into a short segment of the pipe until the pressure builds up. This process checks for leaks and structure issues, but also requires large amount of water. Storing that water in a frac tank onsite is the most convenient solution for pipeline projects.

Agricultural Industry

Frac tanks come in handy when farmers need bulk storage of fertilizers, manure, fuel and even water throughout their operations. The number one choice for agricultural use is a slope top style frac tank, because they are easier to maneuver on narrow farm roads.


Place a frac tank in central locations throughout fields for easy access to fertilizers and manure for spreading across fields. This allows any agricultural operation, large or small, to store more bulk fertilizer and easily access it throughout key times.


Use a frac tank for fuel storage on large operations to save on time and back-and-forth trips to refuel equipment during busy harvest seasons. Frac tanks for fuel also allow farmers to stock up on diesel when the prices are low.


Livestock farms with large herds need adequate water reserves. Store water in frac tanks throughout your fields and easily pump that water as needed to water your herds. This saves on time and keeps herds happy and hydrated.

Environmental Industry

Large or remote operations trust frac tanks for environmental cleanup and wastewater storage. Septic pumping operations take advantage of the large storage capacity by placing a frac tank halfway between the pumping site and the disposal site, then pumping multiple vacuum tank loads into the tank. This makes the operation run faster and more efficient, cutting down on travel time for vacuum tanks so they can handle more loads throughout the day. Environmental operations that retrieve dirty or contaminated water need a safe and reliable place to store it, so they trust a used frac tank.
