Frame Tank Information
The frame tank for long term use is a high level containment and liquid storage tank that has been constructed with durable fabrics for the storage of various liquid types. Frames for these water storage tanks are typically built from either an aluminum or steel material. Choosing between these frames is usually a matter of personal preference, although aluminum frames can be lighter in weight. This can be useful for different types of mobility.
Sizing for a frame tank can range in capacity anywhere from 500 to 5,000 gallons. This provides a small capacity option for small containment jobs, as well as larger capacity options for bulk liquid storage or containment.
Frame Tank Applications
Frame tanks are often been placed under specific areas such as vehicles, pipe lines and other fittings to effectively contain liquids or catch potential spills. This frame tank has often been frequently used by fire fighters as a form of open top water storage for rural fire fighting or in forests or remote locations where water supply may be scarce.
Advantages for these storage tanks include the following:
- Ability to be Folded
- Easy Transportation to new locations
- Multiple Material Options
