Manchester Tank unveils 1-pound refillable cylinder

October 6, 2011 By    


Manchester Tank & Equipment Co. says its 1-pound refillable cylinder is convenient, economical, efficient and environmentally friendly, as it helps to reduce disposable cylinders discarded each year into landfills. The cylinder can be used in recreational, industrial and commercial outdoor power equipment applications. Commercial uses include lawn care equipment, such as leaf blowers, string trimmers, generators, weed burners; hand torches, forklift applications and plumbing. Recreational uses include camping appliances, such as lanterns and small heaters, and portable cooking appliances, such as grills and hot plates. For landscapers, there are two ways to adopt propane: buy an original equipment manufacturer’s propane mower or convert gasoline mowers and other gasoline-powered equipment to run on propane. Propane conversion kits range from 1 to 45 horsepower, with prices ranging from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. Some kits have dual fuel options and can be applied to any manufacturer’s application. The most distinguishing feature of this cylinder is its positive shutoff valve, the company notes.
