Tank Shells

Shells are the biggest part of your tank and therefore a big priority. They often house other critical steel tank components, such as manways or heat transfer surfaces, that can make or break the tank for your customer.

We fabricate tank shells to fit your specifications, regardless of width or length. If you are in need of a cylinder too large to be built in your shop, we can provide shell sections for field assembly.
