Frac Tanks 101: V-Bottom Vs Round Bottom

Frac tanks are large storage containers that are usually steel and are used to store liquids and solids. This can include chemicals, water, petroleum products & proppants. These tanks are designed to allow all of the fluid to be emptied

Capacity: These tanks come in a variety of capacities (6,300 gallons to 21,000 gallons) and sizes.

V-Bottom or Round Bottom?

V-Bottom tanks are great for liquid storage and are the standard for liquid storage. Liquids can be easily siphoned off at the ends due to a channel in the middle of the tank. Round bottom tanks are ideal for storing thicker liquids or high viscosity fluids that need to be agitated (mixed) or circulated. The rounded off bottom allows for easier movement of the liquid.

  1. I never knew that frac tanks can be versatile and can be used in a variety of applications. My husband is looking to get some frac tanks that can help him with his business. We will keep these tips in mind as we search for a professional that can help him.

  2. What you said about how frac tanks can be used to temporarily store liquids was really interesting to me. I would imagine that water plays an important role in the oil industry; particularly when oil is being drilled out of the ground. I would think that water could be used to clean supplies or dilute the oil if needed.
