Autogas tanks are means of LPG storage at service and distribution stations, serving motor vehicles running on auto LPG.
Auto LPG is an environment friendly alternative fuel for vehicles. Local regulations of a country determines whether the tanks shall be installed above ground or under ground.
Our manufacturing standards are EN 12542, EN 13445 and PED. Upon customer’s requirements design and manufacturing can be done according to AD2000 – Merkblatter, ASME, CODAP, BS5500 or other standards.
Manufacturing and testing of the tanks are made under supervision of an independent inspection body.
CE marking is provided. Upon customer’s requirement, ASME U or U2 stamps can be provided.
Shell and heads are manufactured from P355 quality, fine grain pressure vessel steel according to EN10028-3 standard. Metallurgical and mechanical properties of steels are tested and verified.
All welded joints are tested according to the manufacturing standard. Combinations of X-ray, ultrasonic, dye penetrant and magnetic particle tests are utilized.
After manufacturing, all tanks are subjected to hydrostatic pressure test. After this test, the connections of tank accessories are tested against leaks, using nitrogen.
Tanks are sand blasted and coated with premium quality paints. The right type and thickness combination of primer, undercoat and top coating are determined according to the above ground or under ground service.
