500 BBL Double Wall Horizontal Storage Tank Advantages

Master tanks (2 compartment) hold 42.5m3 of fluid in each compartment and have 3" fill lines, 3" suction lines, and 3" circulation lines whereas slave tanks (1 compartment) hold 85m3. Suction lines have an optional manifold that can be installed to allow multiple vacuum trucks to hook up to remove fluid faster. Also, circulating lines have an optional manifold that can allow one pump to keep the fluid moving in all the tanks. Strad has added pump mounts to all of our tanks in order to use multiple pumps if required or to allow any tank to have its own independent pump.
