Begin Using Frac Tank Rental For Your Temporary Liquid Storage Requirements More and more companies are taking advantage of a Frac tank rental, but there are still many in the industry who does not really know what a Frac tank is. Initially, a Frac tank was a very distinct type of storage container. Commonly water was held in the compartment but other fluids could too. Fluid was held in the reservoir and later forced down a wellbore at a high pressure to open wells, while a proppant keeps the hole open. This motion fractures the well, consequently the name “Frac tankâ€. In today's terminology, Frac tank has become a more generic term. It is now applied to any mobile steel storage tank employed for holding liquids. It can still apply to any kind of fracking operation, that is, hydraulic fracturing process. The procedure of extracting natural gas by fracturing shale rock layers is just one common modern use. Using conventional mining technologies, this process of collecting natural gas would be impossible. These reservoirs have become useful for other functions other than fracturing processes where they could be used for storage of runoff liquids like glycol, diesel fuels, oils and various other fluids. The design of Frac tanks is standardized in an effort to coordinate with the industry standard dimensions of other types of containers. Manufactured in a single steel wall configuration, the normal is 21,000 gallons hold capacity. When drained, these tanks can be moved with a tractor or winch truck by the single rear axle present in the equipment. Specialty manufactured Frac tanks can be purchased that are more resistant to colder environments. One technique includes warming the tanks to keep the stored liquid from freezing. This warming approach also aids in proper fracturing. For a more modern Frac tank, the main design requirements is that it be able to hold a component with dynamic motion properties. This will be relevant if the tank needs to be moved. To be familiar with the differences between moving solids and liquids, consider moving just one single concrete girder. When anchored in place, the girders center of gravity rests in a specific location, centered in the middle of the truck that is moving it. The center of gravity doesn't change as the truck bed speeds up. To deal with the increased weight, the driver must adjust the celebration and the breaking. The time he takes to brake specifically, will be significantly slower in order to control the rear of the truck, where the gravity would not all come to the front of the truck too quickly. As long as the braking time is kept to a low level, the forward momentum should keep this from developing. A moving center of gravity in contrast will be located on the Frac tank. As the tank speeds up, the liquid moves to the back and the center of gravity shifts backwards also. The driver would experience a sluggishness as the truck is moving onward. At the same time, as the driver decreases speed, the fluid moves forward and the center of gravity moves forward at the same time. This increases the tendency for the tank to put the vehicle in a slide. This condition is exacerbated on turns, when the center of gravity would really shift to the left or right. Compensation on the drivers part must ensure correct movements where the payload is managed and the vehicle is not lost. Created to minimize this dynamic, the Frac tank is designed to lower
