500,000 Gallon Bag
Large Storage Tanks for Sugar Refinery
Question regarding your 500,000 gallon bag: We are a sugar refinery and may need 24 of your 500,000 gallon bags, what do they cost? I think it would be a Frac tank. What are the dimensions of this collapsible tank when it is full? The density of the liquid is around 77-80 lbs./cubic foot. Is that going to be a problem on the fabric? What fittings are on the tank? 2 inch or something like that?
Answer: Thank you for contacting us! We would be happy to help you with your request. In general, all of our collapsible tanks (included the frac tanks) are made from fabrics specific to the type of liquid you are looking to store. Depending on what kind of liquid you are storing, different materials may work better than others for your storage.
As far as sizing goes, our largest available tank has a capacity of 250,000 gallons and wouldn't be the required 500,000 gallon bag. Because sizing any larger than 250,000 gallons storage is typically not capable of being supported by the tank itself. The weight of this type of storage is too great for the amount of materials you need to store.
The filled dimensions of the 250,000 gallon tank are as follows:
- 81 feet in length
- 81 feet in width
- 5 feet in height
These dimensions may vary slightly depending on the fabric used and the type of liquid that is being stored inside the tank. Depending on what makes up the liquid inside your tank, different fabrics may be more equipped than other to store your materials.
To ensure that materials used for your tank can handle the liquid being stored, we typically ask our customers to provide us with a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). This helps up choose the materials based on the type of chemicals or liquids inside your tank.
In terms of fittings, the tanks can be equipped with almost any fitting you require. Our standard sizes are two inches through 4 inches (2" to 4") but larger or smaller fittings can be included based on your specifications. You can have any type fittings you require.
