Frac Trucks... some call them soup trucks, kettle trucks or frack trucks.
Some of these tanker trailers are used to haul
frac sand or cement for
gas well casings.
Whatever the name or use of these various trucks, they usually catch your attention when they are
parked roadside or travelling down the highway as oversize loads.
All kinds of weird
plumbing, pipes and gauges not seen in everyday life. Some carry
containers of frac fluids
or other devices that you never saw anything quite like before.
