External Manifold versus Internal Manifold

The manifold is the part of the frac tank that provides several outlets to remove liquid from the tanks.

External Manifold

An external manifold, as you might expect, is located on the outside of the frac tank, which makes it easier to access by being elevated and on the front of the tank. Hoses can be attached to the external manifold, thereby enabling a connection to multiple tanks, if needed.

Internal Manifold

The ports and openings of an internal manifold are on the front of the tank but are on the inside of the tank, which can present more challenges during liquid removal, but these units are less likely to freeze, which is a real consideration in cold areas of the country.  Should fluid freeze in an external manifold, the entire tank is unable to be used until it thaws; since internal manifolds are less likely to freeze, it makes these tanks a good fit in cold weather markets.
