Oilfield Tanks

Benefits and Installation

LFM’s fiberglass oil field tanks are an outstanding economical value when compared to steel tanks.

LFM is a leader in the fiberglass tank industry. We have been manufacturing fiberglass tanks for use in the oil industry since 1974. We incorporate the latest chop and filament winding equipment available in the industry today, thus supplying our customers with the utmost in quality fiberglass oil field tanks. Our factory is centrally located in Giddings, Texas, which helps us to better serve our customers in the oil industry.

Chemical Resistant & Fire Retardant

LFM’s fiberglass oil field tanks, when manufactured with certain FRP resin systems, can service multiple processes. Each resin type is resistant to a wide range of chemicals. Additionally, certain resin systems we use can include fire retardants, as required.

Corrosion Resistant

Our fiberglass oil tanks are corrosion resistant, therefore the need for extra corrosion protection, such as painting, is eliminated. Further, the anti-corrosive nature of our tanks greatly reduces the risk of environmental contamination due to leaks or spills.

Economical

LFM’s fiberglass oil field tanks present an outstanding value when compared to steel tanks. Our fiberglass products weigh approximately 60% less than steel, which greatly reduces installation costs. Our fiberglass oil field tanks have a longer service life than steel tanks, which goes a long way toward minimizing replacement costs.

ASTM Certified

We manufacture our fiberglass oil field tanks and process vessels to meet or exceed all ASTM D3299 specifications for fiberglass tanks. We also meet ANS/ AWWA D120 specifications. Importantly, our fiberglass oil field tanks can be fabricated to comply with API-12P specifications. By conforming to these standards, LFM assures that our fiberglass tanks offer the highest structural integrity, durability, and corrosive resistance.

Quality Built Right In

LFM’s fiberglass products are designed and manufactured for your specific application. We meet or exceed industry standards to insure long and trouble-free service. Our fiberglass oil field tanks are engineered for the specific service conditions specified by our customers. The final tank design depends on such factors as operating temperature, chemical environment, specific gravity, wind, seismic loading, agitation, and pressure or vacuum applications. We maintain individual inspection reports for each tank, recording such information as resin system used, actual material usage, accessories, fittings, recommended end use, and delivery destination. These inspection reports are filed for future reference and copies can be obtained from our offices upon request. Our excellent inspection program assures that each of our customers receives the highest quality fiberglass products available.
