Working in the gas and oil industry, you know how important it is to have the right trailers for the job you are doing. Yet, what if the one you are using could be replaced by a better model? According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), by 2035 shale and gas production will rise to 13.6 trillion cubic feet, which represents 50% of all U.S. natural gas production. As the gas and oil industry grows, so does the demand for trailers. It is important to invest in the right type of industrial equipment now, so you can be prepared for the future.
Belly Dump Trailers
One type of heavy duty trailers available on the market is the belly dump trailer. The belly dump, also known as the bottom dump, dumps the material in a line as the driver pulls forward. Belly dump trailers are great for transferring loads quickly and making neat piles of gravel and aggregate.
Belly gravel trailers are perfect for material that is small and falls easily with gravity. If you are working in a rough environment with uneven roads, the belly dump trailers are best suited for your needs. In addition, they can be used on sites that have overhead obstacles and other limitations.
End Dump Trailers
End dump trailers are used for dumping wet clay, large aggregate, or asphalt. An end dump trailer makes a large pile at the end of the truck. These are best suited for flat and even terrain because of their lack of stability while they are dumping out the material.
Vacuum trailers are used for sucking mud and slurry out of pits. The most common industry these are seen is is fracking. Vacuum trailers normally come with a 130 barrel tank with a gauge to determine how much room remains in the tank.
The oil and natural gas industry provides 9.8 million jobs in the United states and accounts for 8% of the U.S. economy and it is expected to grow over the years. Stay ahead of the curve by having the right trailer for the job you are doing.
