Old LPG Propane tanks need to be re-certified every 10 years by a qualified company or agency, per Transport Canada regulations. At minimum, these tanks are often rusty and require resurfacing. We can handle most tanks and sizes, from small to large.
At Lavery, we sandblast these old tanks in-house to remove old paint and rust. This leaves the tank stripped down to bare, clean metal.
After it's been sandblasted and prepped, we powder coat the tank using high quality powder coating that easily lasts 10 years under normal conditions.
When the refurbishing is complete, we replace all valves and inspect the tank. Our staff is fully trained by Propane Training Institution, a division of the Propane Gas Association of Canada, for the safe inspection, re-qualification and remarking of refillable propane steel cylinders. A re-certified tank meets the CAN/CSA-B149.2 Propane Storage & Handling Code as per Transport Canada.
