Wheeled Flow Tanks


Product Development


The term “flow” is short for the term “flowback.”

Flow Tanks are designed to provide quick and effective storage of fluids at a hydraulic fracturing site. Flow Tanks can be used to store either pre-injected liquids or, more often, store liquids that are recovered as a result of a fracing operation.




A Flow Tank allows for heavy sediment filtration and the recycling and reuse of the frac or drilling fluid.

The tanks are transported empty to the site then set up next to the well and can be coupled together to make a larger volume of fluid available for the process.
