Our General Use Philosophy™

Tanks, Pumps and fittings are put to the test by chemicals every day in oilfield and industrial settings and when they fail it impacts your bottom line. Our General Use Philosophy™ takes these realities into consideration. We at Sherman Roto Tank LLC. consider components to be general use if “generally” chemical inert component are used such as our proprietary Barrier Enhanced Tanks™, 316 Stainless Steel, PTFE, Teflon and perfluoropolymer.

We strongly believe that helping our customers achieve realistic expectations of equipment is responsible business. The unfortunate reality is that over time all components will eventually breakdown, and our engineers understand the sum of everything is ultimately zero. Therefore, we developed our General Use Philosophy™ with the goal of prolonging the life of your equipment.

Why Product Integrity Kits™

Sherman Roto Tank has taken the approach of building chemical packaging that ensures chemical product integrity. Simply put, the packaging and accessories work to create a safe, closed environment for the stored chemical that mitigates fallout.

In many situations, simply using low pressure accessories designed for plastic totes and closing off the environment will help achieve better product integrity.

In addition to our line of products designed to ensure integrity, Sherman Roto Tank has adopted a holistic “product integrity” philosophy. We understand that not all tanks and accessories are an ideal setup for certain chemistries (see chemical resistance rates).  Our team will work with you to ensure the right combination of products for your specific use case – minimizing your risk of potential field issues and maximizing your bottom line.

Why Barrier Enhanced Tanks™

The reality is HDPE, Crosslink HDPE, and stainless tanks are put to the test everyday in the oil field and industrial settings. There are chemistries that work well in plastic and not stainless, and vise versa (please see our chemical compatibility resource).

That said, the “polytank” has become widely popular due to its low cost and ease of deployment. To an industry that often revolves around two men, a truck, and a trailer it is easy to see why this setup is prefered over stainless.

Our Barrier Enhanced Tanks™ offer a more chemically inert product, while at the same time continuing to provide the cost and deployment advantages of standard poly tanks.

This chart highlights the differences between standard untreated tanks and our fluorinated Barrier Enhanced Tanks™.

Why Modularity

As modularity becomes more widely practiced in the industry, Sherman Roto Tank has adopted this approach by providing easy to install manifold kits (containment manifold and tank manifold). To an industry that often revolves around two men, a truck, and a trailer modularity has several distinct benefits.

  • Ease of installation

  • Lower cost of distribution
  • Provides the ability to scale up and down based on changing needs

Bigger tanks are more expensive, cost more to transport, and require a larger team to setup and install. Modular units give you all the benefits of smaller tanks (lower cost and easier to transport and install), while giving you the ability to scale up and down based on your changing needs.

Why General Use Philosophy™ Static Lasso®

An ever-present danger in the oil production industry is the risk of fires caused by static electricity. A small spark in a flammable environment can instantly cause a fire or explosion, putting employees and equipment at risk. Our General Use Philosophy™ Static Lasso® neutralizes the static charge in chemical tanks, thereby greatly reducing the risk of fires or explosions.

Chemical tanks are susceptible to explosions because they are electrically insulating. The static charge is generated in tanks when liquids move in contact with other materials. This occurs more frequently when the liquid is being moved through pipes, is mixed, poured, filtered, or agitated. Trapped charges can produce a spark or static discharge that can ultimately trigger a fire. Our General Use Philosophy™ Static Lasso® neutralizes and drains the static charge before a fire can ignite.

Benefits of our General Use Philosophy™ combined with the Static Lasso®:

  • Unlike other products, it does not corrode
  • It’s affordable

  • It proves to be an efficient static drain

  • Made of carbon fiber, keeping it lightweight

  • Factory Installed

Where the Competition Fails:
  • Steel Chains, Copper Rods, and Plates: These items are susceptible to corrosion. They act as capacitors and store charges that can
    result in an electro-static discharge.

  • Stainless Steel Brushes: These brushes can be expensive. Even more costly though is the damage stainless steel brushes can do to downstream equipment. Since they are vulnerable to corrosion, damaged bristles can break away and clog filters and pumps.
