There are no standardized Field Erected Steel Tanks. They are not Shop-Built tanks. They are named for the way they are built. They are far too large to be built or put together inside a shop and then transported to the site unlike shop fabricated tanks that range in sizes of 1,000 to 30,000 gallons. Field erected tanks can start out at 550 gallons and range all the way up to several million gallons. Due to the large nature of these tanks, the materials are shipped to the site and assembled from the foundation up.

The Field Erected Steel Tanks are manufactured using high strength corrugated galvanized steel equipped with a portable PVC internal liner.  They can be used in a variety of Applications such as:
