A municipal fire department contracted Edwards Fabrication to build a custom water tank to efficiently transport water to remote locations to aid in firefighting. Using processes including precision cutting, fitting, and welding, 1/8" thick, 304 stainless steel was manipulated into the customer specified profile. The tank was completed after a turnaround time of 6 days and shipped to the customer in Rockport, Texas.

The finished tank measured 4' in length, 4' in width, and 10' in height with a volume of 1000 gallons. Testing was administered to assure quality and integrity, including a leak test. Edwards Fabrication is experienced in precision manufacturing custom solutions to fit varying needs using metals such as: stainless steel, aluminum, and carbon steel fabrication. For more details about this metal tank project, or the other custom fabricating capabilities available, please see the table below or contact Edwards Fabrication directly.
