Oil Field Frac Tank Comparison Page
During fracking operations, an oilfield frac tank or another form of frac water containment is required to store large quantities of liquid that will be used throughout the duration of the frac job. The three forms of fracking tanks we offer are Smooth Wall Steel Tanks, Flexible Fracking Tanks, and Pit Liners.
This chart below provides a comparison between these three types of oilfield frac tanks and allow you to see some of the advantages of using each system for frac water storage. All oil field frac tanks are made in the USA.
