API 12F Tanks

STANDARDIZED STORAGE TANKS FOR RAPID DELIVERY

With a long history of building API 12F tanks, Shield can construct and deliver these on tight timelines using our optimized manufacturing processes. These tanks are well suited for a multitude of applications such as frac tanks for drilling programs, production tanks for small batteries and fertilizer storage for the agricultural industry.

All tanks are tested and inspected in accordance with API 12F standard.
