Custom Poly Tank Solutions for Oilfield Rentals and More:

by William jakson

When it comes to providing reliable and innovative water storage solutions, few companies can match the expertise and versatility of Poly Tank Sales. Recently, we had the opportunity to assist an oilfield rental company facing significant challenges during the winter months. Their business involves renting trailers and pressurized water tanks to oil drilling sites. However, they were losing thousands of dollars each winter due to frozen and broken water pumps and plumbing lines. To address this issue, we designed a custom 2300-gallon water storage tank that perfectly fit their needs. This project exemplifies our commitment to solving unique problems with tailored solutions.

Solving Winter Challenges with Custom Tanks

The Oilfield Rental Company’s Dilemma

Oilfield rental companies play a crucial role in supporting drilling operations by providing essential equipment and services. One of the major challenges they face is maintaining the functionality of their equipment during harsh winter conditions. Frozen water pumps and plumbing lines can lead to costly repairs and downtime, affecting the overall efficiency of drilling operations. The oilfield rental company approached Poly Tank Sales with a request to design a solution that would prevent these issues and ensure continuous operation during winter.

Innovative Custom Tank Design

To tackle the problem of freezing water pumps and plumbing lines, the oilfield rental company purchased 40-foot shipping containers and lined them with 1-foot insulation boards. This provided a controlled environment that could protect the equipment from extreme cold. Our task was to design a water storage tank that would fit inside the container and integrate seamlessly with their existing setup.

We developed a 2300-gallon water storage tank specifically designed to slide inside the insulated container. The tank featured outlets that could be easily plumbed to their pumps, ensuring a smooth and efficient connection. Additionally, the tank was equipped with a sight glass in front, providing fluid level indication at a glance. This feature allowed operators to monitor the water levels without opening the container, further enhancing the system’s efficiency and convenience.

Benefits of the Custom Tank Solution

The custom water storage tank we designed offered several key benefits:

  1. Protection Against Freezing: The insulated container, combined with our custom tank design, effectively protected the water storage system from freezing temperatures, reducing the risk of damage and costly repairs.
  2. Easy Integration: The tank’s design allowed for easy plumbing connections, ensuring quick and hassle-free setup and maintenance.
  3. Enhanced Monitoring: The sight glass provided real-time fluid level indication, enabling operators to monitor water levels without interrupting operations.
  4. Increased Efficiency: By preventing freezing and minimizing downtime, the custom tank solution improved the overall efficiency and reliability of the oilfield rental company’s operations.
