PCI Manufacturing LLC has announced the latest addition to its product lineup, the bobtail vacuum tank, available in 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 and 110 bbl capacities. These tanks can fit on virtually any heavy-duty truck and can be customized to suit clients’ needs. 

The bobtail vacuum tanks are field-tested and feature a wedge sump, rear blowdown, and three-point rear access to the catwalk. The design also boasts a 5-inch drop from front to rear, allowing for faster cleanout. With large, divided hose hooks, this bobtail can accommodate two sets of hoses, ensuring that any hose a customer would need is within easy reach; these hooks also allow clients to handle different hose sizes that are often required for different jobs. A standard front sight tube that is viewable from the driver’s seat allows drivers to stay in their cabs while loading and unloading.    

“PCI is one of the few companies using sub-arc welding for heads and barrel sections,” says Brian Barrett, sales/operations manager at PCI Manufacturing. “Full welded frames and gussets take the abuse from typical twisting between the truck and bobtail tank frames, ensuring our clients get the most use from the tank.” 

The bobtail is sold as a complete kit for the customer to mount, including bumpers, spring-based frame mounts and multiple tank configurations. PCI will also handle installations, with a complete turnkey pump system in-house.
