Specialty Tanks

Southern Fabrication Specialties has the ability to manufacture specialty tanks and custom tanks.

These tanks have been used in the oil and gas industry to mix drilling muds and have also been used to recycle drilling fluids. Mix tanks can also be used in the construction industry for drilling pier holes for bridges and large structures.

Examples of our specialty tanks include:

  • Mix tanks
  • Water treatment tanks
  • Separator tanks
  • Recycling tanks
  • Double walls

Our team has built multiple mix tanks that have included options like:

  • Agitators
  • Pumps
  • Vibrating screens


Southern Fabrication Specialties has also built multiple separation tanks. These tanks are used as water treatment tanks for the separation of oil, water, and sand that comes out of the wells after hydraulic fracturing. These tanks are also used for the storage and separation of waste oils. They can have multiple compartments with different uses for each compartment. We build to your design with your technology.

Different options that can be added are:

  • Weir tank
  • Skimmers
  • Filters
  • Filter media
  • Screens
  • Plate settlers
  • Flocculants and
  • Clarifiers


Our tanks have the ability to be mobile structures like a frac tank so that they are able to be moved from job to job. They also have the ability to remain as a permanent structure, such as within a tank farm, and can be used for many different applications.

We offer 3 different style tanks:

  • Round bottom
  • Flat bottom
  • V- bottom



Our team can also create custom options. We can add many options to suit your needs, such as:

  • Double walls
  • Indicators
  • Heaters
  • Static drains
  • Hydraulics
  • Custom piping
  • Catwalks
  • Handrails
  • Access manways


For example: A double wall tank is custom option that is offered that provides extra protection against spills or leaks. Essentially, a double wall tank is a tank inside of a tank.  We air test the integrity of both tanks before they are blasted, and then again after they are final prepped for shipment. These tanks can be built with multiple compartments.


We match the interior liner on all of our tanks to the holding requirements of your specific products. Our standard liner is a Glass Reinforced Novolac Modified Epoxy. We can install acid resistant liners with the option of lining them with a Fiberglass reinforced plastic liner (FRP) if necessary.
