Wheeled Frac Tanks


Product Development


The term “frac” is short for the term “fracture.”

Fracing is the process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture (water, sand and chemicals) is directed at the rock to stimulate a natural gas, oil, or geothermal energy well to maximise extraction.




During well drilling, large amounts of liquids are required for storage near to the well.  Transportable storage tanks are manufactured for this purpose. The tanks are transported empty to site, coupled together to form a larger reservoir for drilling and fracing fluids.

Although the main use is in the oil and gas industry, they can also be used for the storage of run-off water, glycol, diesel fuel, waste products, waste water treatment, desalination and others.
