Removing the Propane Tank from an Old Chassis

Every unit that BT&T refurbishes goes though a standard process regardless of size or age. This process begins by checking the data plate to assure the vessel complies with all applicable codes. The vessel is then evacuated of all combustible materials and tested by two individuals to verify that it’s safe to remove from the old chassis. All skirting is removed along with the main valve, pump and pump studs.

The pump flange is sealed off, preventing sand from entering the vessel during exploratory sand blasting. All other vessel fittings will be left intact until this sand blasting is completed. Exploratory blasting includes high rust areas, the bottom of the vessel, places where old skirting may have been attached, relief valve wells and any other areas that might show signs of vessel corrosion.
