Stainless Steel LP Tank - Includes Gas and Liquid Fill/Drain Ports
Stainless Steel LP tanks offer a superior way to decrease contamination of solvent and feature a tri-clamp lid with a high-pressure clamp. This allows easy access to the inside of the tank, making cleanout simple, unlike a normal carbon steel LP tanks. Tanks feature a safety collar to prevent damage to the valves, as well as a welded ring on the bottom to prevent damage to the tank body and allow better circulation of fluid around the entire tank. Lids come configured with 2 valves and compound gauge and polycarbonate sight glass on the larger #50 and #100 tanks. These tanks come with BVV 1/4" FNPT valves and 1/4" 37 Degree JIC Flares with one port being connected to a dip tube.
***Note: Tank comes empty and does not include solvent.
Butane Capacity Calculation:
- All solvent tanks sold by Best Value Vacs have their capacity determined by this calculation and are based on industry-standard nomenclature of the water weight tank # system because the specific gravity of water is 1.000 and the DOT 80% fill guideline.
Example: 100# Tank = ~100lbs of water weight, Halfton Tank = 1000lbs of water weight.
