API Shop Fabricated Tanks
Serving the Oil & Gas Industry Since 1976
Dixie Southern designs and completes custom chemical tank fabrication. Our above-ground, welded-steel storage tanks meet the exacting standards of the American Petroleum Institute (API).
API establishes standards for the design and fabrication of welded-steel storage tanks. Carbon steel and stainless-steel tanks are often used for storing oil and other liquids. The API standard is applicable for stationary atmospheric and low-pressure petroleum storage tanks used in all sectors of the petroleum and petrochemical industry. We serve customers in the oil and gas industry, and beyond, for their custom, legal load or over-dimensional, API certified storage tanks in carbon steel and stainless-steel tanks.

Dixie Southern has decades of experience designing, fabricating, assembling, and inspecting API 620 and API 650 storage tanks. At our 12-acre, 65,000 square foot manufacturing facility in West Central Florida, we have the professional designers, welders, and fabricators needed to build your custom welded API storage tanks.
API 620 Tanks
The design configuration of API 620 requires that the user has an elevated or flat bottom on which to set the stainless-steel tank. This type of storage tank has a single, vertical, central axis of revolution, and the tank is used for products that have high internal pressures, such as liquified natural gas and cryogenic tanks. Available as a stainless-steel tank or carbon steel tank.
API 650 Tanks
The design configuration of API 650 covers tanks that support the whole bottom evenly and tanks in non-refrigerated service that have a maximum design temperature of 200 degrees F. API 650 tanks can store oil, gas, chemical, water, and biofuel and are some of the most common steel tanks in the oil industry. Available as a stainless-steel tank or carbon steel tank.
