Field Welded Tanks
A field welded tank is the storage alternative to an oil tank purchased off the shelf. Use applications for tanks welded on site include many benefits. Any size of field welded tank can be constructed to fit your space, since field welded tanks are designed and installed from the ground up.
A field welded oil tank is ideal when the sizes of off the shelf tank products won't fit into your building's sub-basement or boiler room. For home and commercial use, CommTank offers a fair price and quality installation for field welded tanks in round, rectangular, or square configurations.
One way to maximize your storage capacity in an existing vault is for CommTank to custom-build a rectangular tank to fit your storage room. For our customers who are required to have 110% containment in case of an oil spill accident, we can field weld a secondary containment around your new or existing tank.

One quarter inch size minimum
We weld tanks of steel with a minimum size thickness of one quarter inch. We use only Standard 653 and AWS QC7-93 certified welders.
CommTank takes the initiative of handling the major details of the project, whether it is small or large, so that our customer has less to worry about. In accordance with the UL142 safety standards, CommTank pressure tests each new tank before installation takes place. We have trusted third party quality assurance inspectors design and test each tank prior to its use. CommTank contacts the local fire department in order to acquire permission to install the tank, and an installation permit. As long as the capacity of the tank being installed is less than 10,000 gallons there is no need to contact the state fire marshal. All parts and labor are backed up by a one-year warranty, and we ensure that the tank will have a life of at least ten years.
