Giant Manure Tank Holds Up To 20,000 Gal.
“The Dryhill Frac Tank is an effective way to apply manure when distance is an issue,” says Debra Broyer, Dryhill Manufacturing.
Recycled frac tanks from oil fields have been used by custom manure haulers and large farm operations in the past. However Dryhill recently introduced a 20,000-gal., heavy-duty frac tank. The quarter century old company makes a wide array of manure handling systems, including pumps.
The basic model comes with a 14,000-lb. axle mounted to the rear end of the tank with 3,000-lb. cylinders for raising the tank into transit position. The axle has 3 3/8-in. spindles with 10-bolt hubs with 425/65 22.5 tires on the heavy-duty rims.
“Our basic model has a Dryhill pump with 28-in. impeller at 540 rpm’s or 20-in. impeller at 1,000 rpm’s,” says company founder Amos Petersheim. “It has a 6,000 gal. per min. volume and requires a 150 hp or larger tractor to run it.”
The basic unit is priced at $35,000, but Petersheim emphasizes the company’s ability to customize. “We can build to meet our customers’ needs, whatever size, pumping system or other options (such as agitation system) they want,” he says.
