7 Uses Of Frac Tanks That Require Dry Ice Cleaning Services (Part Two)

In part one of this series we looked at three alternative uses of frac tanks. These large structures were originally made for the fracking industry, but no matter their use they need dry ice cleaning services to properly clean their large interiors. As carbon dioxide is a natural trace gas that makes up 0.05% of our atmosphere, dry ice blasting is an eco-friendly cleaning solution that is safe in the context of any frac tank use. Here are four more uses of frac tanks that could need dry ice cleaning for proper sanitation.

Cattle Water Reservoir

A frac tank works perfectly for a farmer’s long-term storage of a large amount of cattle water. As it can hold about 21,000 gallons, a farmer can keep plenty of water in reserve for droughts or dry spells. The valves on the tanks allow farmers to attach a hose to it and pump it into the cattle watering area. As the water will be sitting in the tank for long periods of time, it will need dry ice cleaning services whenever it is empty to get out any lingering bacteria.

Environmental Remediation

As frac tanks were first designed to hold large amounts of oil and petroleum for frackers, they are ideal for other industries that need a temporary and portable storage unit for waste or toxic matter. Their sturdy structure ensures that no harmful contaminants will escape and that the surrounding environment will stay chemical-free.

Septic Solution

A septic disaster can not only be disgusting to handle, but also a serious danger to the health of anyone in the area. Frac tanks can be used to contain septic liquids in the case of an unexpected septic back-up. If you do need to use a frac tank for this purpose, a thorough cleaning afterward is absolutely necessary.

Diesel Storage

For any industry that needs diesel to power heaving machinery and equipment, buying diesel in bulk can be a beneficial financial strategy. A frac tank is ideal for storing diesel, as that is very close to its original purpose in the fracking industry. Frac tanks also make the transportation of these large amounts of diesel much more simple and viable.

While frac tanks are the perfect solution for the needs of several different industries, dry ice cleaning services is the perfect solution to keep those tanks clean. If you need a frac tank cleaned today, contact Interstate Carbonic Enterprises today.

    I never thought about how frac tanks were first used to hold oil and not let anything leak out. My son is starting a new business that involves holding valuable liquids for long periods of time. I’ll share your article with him so that he can learn more about why frac tanks could help him.

    I never realized that frac tanks could be used to handle septic waste. I honestly wasn’t sure what frac tanks were used for, even though I’ve seen them. Thanks for explaining the different uses of frac tanks.

    It’s good to know that a farmer can use a frac tank to effectively store water for their cattle. My grandpa and uncle are thinking about buying a farm together. They want to raise cattle so I’ll tell them to get a frac tank in order to give them enough water.

    I really like that you touched on not just using the tanks for oil, but other materials as well. My brother is trying to get a frac tank rented for his company soon. He doesn’t deal with fracing, but it would be really useful for the other chemicals he is transporting.

    My septic tank has been getting clogged a lot, and I’m not sure what the problem is. It makes sense that it could be getting dirty to the point where it needs deep cleaning! My home is really old, so the septic system is also very old. I’ll be sure to get a professional to clean it for me.
