Drafting Capabilities

At Advance Tank we take great pride in our drafting department. There is not a higher quality drafting package on the market. We issue complete drafting packages to our customers, if we have produced a drawing for fabrication or erection you will receive it.

Every project has unique design specifications. Therefore each project will have its own custom designs outlining all weld details, welding requirements, radiographic locations, plate sizes and locations, nozzle and manways sizes and locations, and more. That way, if for any reason, there is a need to build a sister tank or repair the tank 25 years down the road, your company will have all the information necessary to make the job as simple as possible.

Over the last 40 years we have also come to understand that the submittal process is critical to building strong customer relationships and smooth construction projects. We strive to exceed all customer expectations on speed and accuracy, making your job seamless.

All of our drawings packages include but are not limited to:

  • Foundation designs (if within scope)
  • Anchor chair details and orientations (if needed)
  • Anchor bolt details (if needed)
  • Orientations of all accessories
