Farmers can also use frac tanks in applying manure over large areas for animals that need it, such as hogs. The valves at the front of the tanks allow farmers to attach a hose and pump to it and then easily distribute the manure throughout the fields. Compared to more traditional methods of manure application, this is much faster and doesn’t require farmers to haul the manure around the land themselves.
The process of water treatment has many moving parts, but frac tanks can be very useful for interim storage. In the frac tank, water treatment professionals can introduce chemicals to the water without contaminating other water supplies. Water could also be isolated in a frac tank to allow for residual oils to rise to the top and treated water to exit through the pump near the bottom. Dry ice cleaning can then be used to scrub the tank clean of any chemicals.
These are just three alternative uses of frac tanks and the resulting importance of using dry ice cleaning. Read part two of this series to discover four more relevant uses.

I found it interesting that frac tanks are cleaned with dry ice because of its size. My friend told me that frac tanks are useful to securely transport oil. Thank you for helping me learn more about frac tanks, It was very helpful for me.

That’s good to know that treating water ina frac trank will cover the walls of the tank with things like oil. I feel like that would be hard to get off with water since oil is hydrophobic. I should consider getting someone to help me clean up the tank with dry ice if I decide to use one to treat some water on my property.

I like what you said about using frac tanks to apply manure over long areas. My sister has been telling me about how she wants to start farming in the coming months. I’ll share this information with her so that she can look into her options for frac tanks that can help her with this.
