Design Process

Our Design Process:

First, a customer decides what type of tank they need: 
     The Most Common Types we manufacture are:
  • Hydraulic Upright Tank Reservoir 
  • Hydraulic Sidemount/Box Style Tank Reservoir
  • Hydraulic 24” Diameter Saddlemount Tank Reservoir
  • Transfer Upright, Deckmount, or L-Style Tank Reservoir
  • Reefer 22” or 24” Diameter Tank Reservoir


Then the customer then sends in a marked up drawing of proposed tank with detailed dimensions and labels for porting and other features.

Our engineer then assigns a Model number to the proposed tank assembly.

The propose tank assembly is separated into two sections, manufacturing section and post “leak-tested” section.

This is done to help identify the manufacturing process against all secondary procedures such as powder-coating, adding accessories, and packaging. 
Both section of the tank assembly is modeled up in AutoCad:Inventor with all individual parts named, numbered and identified.
The Model is then priced and costed based on the BOMs (Build of materials) and an “estimated time to produce” is predictable. 
After price is identified. The design and quote are submitted to the customer. 
If the customer submits any changes, the process may start completely over, depending on how radical the change, or may be just tweaked slightly and processed on. 
If the customer approves the design, then the Model is ready to be Ordered by the customer.
*Machine Programing is not completed/encoded till Model is Ordered.  
 When customer submits Purchase Order, this is when lead time is determined.
