Can Empty Propane Autogas Tanks for Service with Zero Venting
Blossman Services has developed a new pump for removing propane autogas (aka LPG, for liquefied petroleum gas) from fuel tanks, improving safety and preventing loss to the atmosphere. The Propane Autogas LPG Evacuation Pump is said to be the first of its kind for the U.S. market.
“This one of a kind, patent pending, Autogas LPG Evacuation System can evacuate a fuel pump-equipped LPI [liquid propane injection] vehicle tank filled to 80% with 44 useable propane gallons in 1.5 hours to zero PSI tank pressure without venting any propane into the atmosphere,” states a release.
“Autogas fleets and trained autogas technicians now have a service tool available that allows them to safely work on their vehicles on their own timelines,” Blossman says.
The compressed air-powered pump may also be used to transfer propane fuel from one vehicle to another, or to a separate propane storage vessel.
