United Truck & Equipment, Inc. is a manufacturer and leading nationwide supplier of mobile fluid spray systems for a wide range of applications.
We build our UnitedBuilt tanks from the ground up, starting with A36 sheet steel (or 304 2B stainless if specified) with a minimum thickness of 3/16” (or 7-gauge if stainless). Depending on the customer spec, shells are rolled either to a modified ellipse or a modified trapezoid with a radius bottom, yielding the desired volume distribution and/or rear view visibility. All shell seams are welded 100% on both sides.
UnitedBuilt tank design properly distributes the forces of hauled water evenly throughout the vessel. Toward this, we install curved bulkheads, which match or exceed the shell thickness. All contact between heads and shell is welded 100% on both sides. To suppress fluid surge during stops and starts, according to capacity and dimension we baffle our tanks with the appropriate number of ported and curved lateral steel sheets. Internally, UnitedBuilt tanks contain no unbaffled chamber exceeding 1700 gallons. As with the bulkheads, all contact between baffle and shell is welded 100% on both sides.
Tanks of 2700 gallons and above are reinforced with a full-length belly plate, effectively doubling the bottom thickness of the tank. Bottom runner skids are fully welded to the bottom of the tank for precise interface to the chassis frame. Between truck frame and tank runner, a vulcanized rubber wear pad diffuses stress and surge even further.
UnitedBuilt Equipment specifications do not merely meet industry standards. Over years of quality manufacturing, our specifications have BECOME the standard, offering not only safety of design, but a durability so stout that United Truck can confidently offer a limited five-year tank construction warranty – tops in the industry.
After the tank construction is complete, our coating department stands ready to apply treatments according to customer needs. Exteriors can be powderco
