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.
