Our Process

BLT Tanks will refurbish your tanks. We will pick them up at your location, bring them here to Kingfisher, Oklahoma to go through the refurbishing process and bring them back to you.

Our current freight rates will be added to your price. We have cranes on all of our trucks so we can load and unload your tanks. You will need to provide at least one person, capable of climbing tanks to hook chains, to help load and unload trailers. If you do not supply a helper during normal business hours to help load/unload there will be an additional $50 per hour charge.

Each rebuilt tank undergoes the following:

  • Licensed technicians replace all valves with new ReGo valves.
  • We kit the volume gauge with new stainless screws and seals, lubricate the gear and calibrate.
  • The tanks are blasted with #40 steel shot to remove all paint and any rust that may be on the tank.
  • Each tank is gauged with a metal pit gauge to determine that the tank is legal for rebuilding and visually inspected for any defects.
  • The manufacturer’s data plates are cleaned and coated with a marine varnish to protect them.
  • The tanks are coated with polyurethane enamel that was specifically formulated for our tanks.  For years, we had employed a conventional primer & topcoat alkyd paint system that provided very good long-term corrosion protection and overall tank appearance; however, with a business philosophy of constant improvement, we decided to pursue a more modern, technically advanced coating system that would provide additional corrosion protection, enhanced weatherability (long-term gloss & color retention), and increased overall coating toughness.  Working with  H-I-S Paint we developed a high-solids, direct-to-metal, mastic polyurethane that not only accomplishes our coatings goals but does so with a single-coat product.
  • Each tank is pressure tested with propane and treated with methanol.
  • The tanks are fitted with steel domes.
  • Tanks are shipped on padded racks and the tie down straps are padded with foam to minimize paint scuffing during shipment.
  • We provide touch up paint that will match the customer’s colors.

Although we strive to provide quick service, plan on a 30-day turn around to be safe.

BLT Tanks & H-I-S Paint

A partnership to produce attractive, high quality propane tanks.

The result of BLT Tanks’ modern production methods and careful attention to detail, along with H-I-S Paint’s cutting-edge tank coatings, is high-end propane tanks that are engineered to both perform and look great for years to come.

Aesthetically pleasing tank finishes that provide superior corrosion protection require not just high-quality coatings but painstakingly consistent application procedures as well. Each refurbished tank is steel shot-blasted, carefully inspected for defects, and – when found completely fit – coated with a polyurethane enamel that was specifically formulated for BLT Tanks.

Working with BLT Tanks, H-I-S Paint designed, tested, and implemented an advanced coating system tailored to BLT Tanks’ unique preparation and application process. For years, BLT Tanks had employed a conventional primer & topcoat alkyd paint system that provided very good long-term corrosion protection and overall tank appearance; however, with a business philosophy of constant improvement, BLT Tanks decided to pursue a more modern, technically advanced coating system that would provide additional corrosion protection, enhanced weatherability (long-term gloss & color retention), and increased overall coating toughness.

The outcome: with BLT Tanks’ help in testing, H-I-S Paint developed a high-solids, direct-to-metal, mastic polyurethane that not only accomplishes BLT Tanks’ coatings goals but does so with a single-coat product! Changing from two coats to one allows BLT Tanks to further streamline its production process which translates into savings for its customers – all while significantly improving its coating quality.
