ASME Tanks

High capacity storage tanks accept complete high or low pressure refrigerant charges from large chillers. 
NEW sight glass windows replace sight glass tube (3/2003)

DOT Tanks

30, 50, 250, & 1000-lb capacities.   Optional low pressure switches available.  250 & 1000-lb tanks are retrofitted with full 3/4" service valves & copper dip tubes to meet capacity of commercial recovery units.

ASME Refrigerant Storage Tanks

  • Mounted on casters
  • High pressure (-HP) tanks: Dual 250-psi relief valves on diverting valve Low pressure (-LP) tanks: 250-psi rupture disc & 250-psi relief (meets ASME section VIII div 1 and ANSI specifications)
  • Pressure gauge
  • Three sight glass windows
  • 80% tank full float switch
  • Bottom drain connection
  • Liquid & Vapor ports: Threaded connections with isolation ball valves are supplied standard. Ball valves may be substituted with quick connect fittings on LP tanks only. 3/4” connections accomodate Lovac, Allvac, or Evac Commercial recovery units.
  • Options:
    • Cable for Liquid level cut out switch

DOT Refrigerant Recovery Tanks

  • Typical recovery tanks have small diameter ports that restrict refrigerant flow and decrease recovery rates. RefTec 250 & 1000-lb D.O.T. tanks have been fitted with full 3/4” service valves and copper dip tubes to eliminate restrictions and allow faster refrigerant transfer.
  • Tanks service R11, R12, R22, R113, R114, R123, R134a, & and additional high pressure refrigerants and blends.   For R410a, use only 30 & 50-lb tanks.
  • Quick connects are available for tanks servicing low pressure refrigerants.
  • Heating bands are available for distillation capabilities
