Viking Cylinders® Lightweight Propane Tank (SI-LWTANK)
Standard 17-lb. propane tank that is made of fiberglass composite materials making it 50% lighter than steel propany cylinders, but just as durable. The tanks are corrosion free, easily stackable and are encased in a plastic housing with handles for easy carrying. The outer walls are translucent, allowing you to see exactly how much propane is left in the tank. Each cylinder has a wide, stable base that prevents it from tipping over.
Unlike steel and aluminum tanks, Viking Cylinders® will not BLEVE in a fire. BLEVE is the technical abbreviation for Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion. In layman’s terms this means the cylinder will not explode in a fire. Instead, the resin will burn off and the plastic liner and casing will melt. The LPG will then “breathe” through the cylinder wall and burn in a controlled manner.
