Mud tanks are large, heavy-gauge steel containers that store liquids or solids. Because they have tires, air brakes, lights and mud flaps, frac tanks are considered semi-trailers. Typically holding up to 500 barrels of fluid (which translates to 21,000 gallons), these hard-working Dragon tanks are designed to arrive at the worksite empty and are filled on site with vacuum or water trucks.
Frac tanks may be used to house chemicals or liquids like petroleum products, manure, proppants and saline water. They are then hauled with the help of a roll-off trailer or truck. They can also be moved using a power-only tractor, particularly when long-distance moves are called for.
