Tanker drain pots, also known as drain sumps or drain pots, are components used in the transportation and storage of liquids to facilitate the draining of residual fluids from tanker trucks, railcars, or storage tanks. Tanker drain pots are typically cylindrical or rectangular vessels made of materials such as stainless steel or carbon steel. They are designed to collect and hold the residual fluids that accumulate in the bottom of tanker trucks or railcars during transportation or in storage tanks during maintenance or cleaning.

The drain pot is equipped with a drain valve or plug that allows the residual fluids to be drained and collected for proper disposal or recycling. The drain valve or plug may be manual or automated, depending on the specific application and requirements. Tanker drain pots are important for ensuring the safe and efficient handling of liquids, as they help to prevent residual fluids from spilling or leaking onto the ground or contaminating the environment. They are commonly used in a wide range of industries, including chemical, oil and gas, food and beverage, and pharmaceuticals.

Proper installation and maintenance of tanker drain pots are important to ensure their safe and efficient operation. Regular inspection and cleaning of the drain pot and valve or plug can help to prevent clogging or leaks and ensure that the residual fluids are collected and disposed of properly.
