Featured Tank

Stout Tanks – ST/STDW

Our most popular series

The dictionary defines stout as being able to withstand considerable stress or hardship, and that is what our customers get with our ST models ranging from 150 to 2,000 gallons. We put some extra effort into making stout “feet.” First, the thick steel feet are formed and then welded to mounting pads, which in turn are seal-welded to the tank. All feet have a single, large hole for anchoring the tanks to hard surfaces when required. Available in single or double-wall models.

Typical Uses:

  • Motor Fuels
  • Lubricants
  • Waste Oils
