    • Propane is the most common form of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) that
      can be used as a fuel in areas where no gas mains are installed. A byproduct of the oil
      refining process, it is compressed into a liquid for ease of storage and delivery. In a
      domestic storage tank, fuel vaporizes in the upper part of the vessel which can be
      tapped for use as a cooking and heating gas. Its pressure is regulated down to a level
      compatible with the appliances it runs. In cold climates, the ambient temperature is
      sometimes too low for the propane to vaporize fast enough, in which case a heat source,
      known as a vaporizer must be used. In its natural form, propane has no smell and an
      odorant is added before distribution, for safety reasons.

    • The propane industry uses many different types and sizes of tanks,
      from 30,000 or more gallons at the distributor, to a barbecue cylinder. Hanson`s ASME
      propane tanks are built to 250# working pressure. Under normal circumstances, the vapor
      pressure at 100ºF is 172 psi.

    • Hanson Tank manufactures the following types of LPG tanks: DISPENSER
      TANKS, DOMESTIC TANKS, DOT TANKS

    • Bulk storage: Up to 20,000 gallons.

    • Dispensers (Used to store and
      transfer liquid propane into smaller tanks) 250 to 6,000 gallons, horizontal or
      vertical.

    • Domestic: 124 to 2,000 gallons.

    • Motor fuel: 60 to 250 gallons (Primary or alternate fuel system tanks
      for autos, trucks, buses.)

    • Standby fuel: 124 to 5,000 gallons. (Back up fuel for remotely located
