Manchester Tank issues safety notice for propane distributors, fillers

June 21, 2018 By    

Manchester Tank & Equipment Co. has issued a safety notice on its 33.5-pound aluminum forklift cylinders manufactured from 1992 through 1993.

According to the company, the aluminum forklift cylinders made during this time frame may develop stress corrosion cracking in the sidewall of the cylinder that can lead to fuel leakage. An undetected leak could lead to a fire.

The notice for propane distributors and fillers lists the following actions: Do not refill the cylinder; remove the cylinder from service; and provide this notice to customers with bulk tanks used for refilling their forklift cylinders.
