 Industrial bullet tanks for safe storage & transport of pressurized liquids & gases. DNOW U.S. Process Solutions: Your custom pressure vessel experts

Product Information


Power Service is part of our DNOW U.S. Process Solutions operating unit. We pride ourselves on offering a wide range of pressurized bullet tanks engineered for the safe storage of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and natural gas liquids (NGLs). Our bullet tanks, a specialized type of pressure vessel, inherit all the general advantages of pressure vessels while also providing unique benefits due to their distinctive design.

Products Offered

We offer standard and custom tanks for safe storage of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and natural gas liquids (NGLs):

  • Bullet tanks
  • Custom vessels and internals
  • Quick-opening swing bolt closures
  • 2D and 3D CAD
  • Specialized code vessel design

Features and Benefits

Pressure vessel-pressurized bullet tanks, often used in industries such as chemical, petrochemical, and oil and gas, offer several benefits:

  • Efficient Storage of Gases and Liquids: Tanks are designed to store gases and liquids at high pressures, allowing for the efficient storage of large substances in a compact space. This is particularly useful for materials best stored under pressure, such as propane or natural gas.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Streamlined design translates into cost savings in manufacturing and maintenance.
  • Ease of Transport and Installation: Their streamlined shape and robust construction make them suitable for transport. This mobility is essential for industries that require the movement of large volumes of pressurized substances.
  • Versatile Applications: Bullet tanks can be designed for various applications and handle multiple substances, from volatile chemicals to cryogenic liquids. This flexibility makes them suitable for diverse industrial uses.
  • Durability and Longevity: Constructed from high-strength materials, these tanks are designed to withstand extreme conditions and pressures, contributing to their longevity and reducing frequent replacements or maintenance.
