This section showcases various storage tanks for industrial and refinery settings. To see our selection of track-side storage tanks please visit the Tank Stands web page.
The catwalks for the Tank Farm have been redesigned. Shown below are some of the several different custom elevations offered. These tanks can be used to store either crude oil ready for refining or finished product at the end of processing.
This tank farm consists of 4 tanks with a diameter of 5 inches and a height of approx. 7 1/2 inches. There are platforms on top of the tanks with caged ladders for each. Separate piping connects each tank to the pump house. At the pump house the input pipes are controlled by separate gate valves. There is a large output valve on the opposite side of the shed with an unglued elbow leading the pipe into the ground. This makes it easy to remove the piping to ground and install custom piping to a different location. The total footprint of the tank farm including the pump house is about 13 x 18 inches. The tank farm is shipped in separate in pieces - the four tanks, platforms with caged ladders and the pump house.

A new addition to Model Structures Oil Refinery series this tank measures six inches in diameter and 6 inches in height. These tanks can be used to store crude or finished product. Each tank has a wrap around style stairway from the ground to a platform on top of the tank. The structure comes standard with a manway plus inlet and outlet nozzles. Decals are also available at added cost. Usual practice is not to have railing on the wind girder since it is not meant to be walked on. However railing will be supplied if desired.
These tanks can be used in a refinery as storage for fuel/oil or an additive for mixing. They can also be used in an ethanol refinery site as slurry tanks. The footprint has been updated to approximately 6 x 2 inches including the piping. The tanks are now 2 inch diameter and stand about 9 inches tall and use a wider diameter pipe. A concrete base is included in the cost of the product. An optional pump assembly can also be added.
There is a new design for the Spherical Storage Tanks. The walkway has been extended to cross over both tanks. The bottom platform has been raised and extended to go from the front to the back of the tanks and a new loading platform with pumps have been added. A wind girder has been added to the tanks. The tanks can still be purchased as one tank, both tanks and both tanks with the loading platform. These tanks are primarily used to house petroleum / chemical products stored under pressure such as Benzene, Ammonia, Liquid Propane, Liquid Oxygen or Nitrogen. Shown above is the O Scale double tank option. A single tank option is also available. Each O Scale tank measures 5 inches in diameter. The overall footprint for the double tank version is 19 inches wide x 9 inches deep (including stairs) with a 7 inch height. The single unit tank structure is about 10 inches wide. The tanks are available in different colors. Standard color for the tank complex is light gray with dark gray stairways. Other color options are dark gray, white or black with appropriate color stairways.
This tank farm is designed to load/unload propane from either tank cars or tractor trailers depending on whether tracks or a road bed are laid under the platform. The valve system is designed so that whether loading or unloading the propane always feeds through the pump system. The blue piping is for gas release. it has a check valve that automatically opens to allow faster product flow.
The latest addition to Model Structures for Model Railroads Oil Refinery Series is a large complex that incorporates three large 3-inch diameter tanks six inches long on a superstructure with lower and upper decking. Each tank has inlet and outlet piping each of which goes to ground. Pipe routing can be modified to suit customer preferences. On top of each tank there are individual man-ways and relief valves. Overall footprint is approximately 15 inches by 17 inches. As with our product Lamp posts using 12-volt bulbs and decals can be added for additional cost. Included are two fuel transfer pipe stands that swivel and rotate 360 degrees. If one of our Fuel Loading Platforms is added then pipe routing can be modified to connect the Tank farm to the Platform.
The Fuel Transfer Depots are the perfect compliment to the Storage Tanks
