Dragon Frac Tanks/Mud Tanks for Sale

Based on the job that needs to be done, there are several types of Dragon frac tanks for sale:

  • Smooth Wall, Round Bottom Frac Tanks: With smooth interior walls for easy cleaning, these hard-working frac tanks feature quarter-inch steel plate construction. The round bottom floor is ideal for storing thicker or higher viscosity liquids that require mixing or circulating because it permits more effortless movement of the fluid.
  • Heavy-Duty Industrial Storage Frac Trailers: Designed especially for containing industrial oilfield liquids, this industrial storage tank features ¼" corrugated steel plate construction throughout.
  • Corrugated Wall, V-Bottom Frac Trailers for Liquid Storage: Built from ¼" heavy-duty corrugated steel, this frac tank features chemical-resistant liners. Corrugated frac tanks store frac water, brine, processed water and other hydraulic fluids. At Dragon, we also carry insulated corrugated frac trailers. The V-bottom is great for storing liquids, which can easily be siphoned off at each end of the tank with the help of a channel that runs through the middle.
  • V-Bottom Frac Trailers With Smooth Walls: These mud tanks feature a v-bottom with integral formed side channels for easy draining. The drain/fill feature includes a 4″ drain at each end of the floor, 3″ fill pipe to roof, 4″ connection on front, 8″ flanged front manifold connection with inside flange and 4″ connection on roof.
  • Industrial Mini Frac Tanks: Smaller but just as mighty, this frac tank has an 8,500-gallon capacity and is suitable for liquid waste. The unit is movable via a roll-off trailer or truck.

What Dragon Mud Tanks Do

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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Frac Tanks

Here are answers to some of the more common questions we've received about frac tanks. If you have a different question, please feel free to give us a call. We're always glad to help.

Why Are They Called Frac Tanks?

Frac trailers picked up their name when it became common practice for this type of tank to supply fracturing fluids at gas and oil wells. Initially, the term "mud tanks" was applied to these receptacles because workers used to dig mud pits in the earth and fill them with the materials that are now collected in mud tanks.

Who Uses Mud Tanks?

Oil and gas operations commonly use mud tanks to store filtered water that's mixed with a proppant, which is then pumped down the well to fracture the formation and hold the fracture open. There are several other industries that also use frac trailers – any sector with a need for the large-scale temporary storage of non-toxic liquids. Some examples include:

  • Construction
  • Environmental Projects
  • Minerals Drilling
  • Mining
