The article provides information on tankers from Polybilt Co., a company owned by W.S. Darley and Co. and Propoly of America. Whether its 2,000 or 3,500 gallons, it is important that the design is both practical and sale. A Polybilt tanker design maximizes space due to the ability to integrate compartments with the tank. With integrated equipment compartments, there is not any wasted space, resulting in a lower overall height of the vehicle, in addition to greater strength and weight .savings. Pump compartment space can be also integrated with the tank. This design maximizes space by moving the tank and water forward and downward. Space and weight savings means one can carry more equipment or water.
