The only commercial LPG unit on the market, this unit first drains down the LPG tank by either flaming off the LPG or transferring it to a storage bottle. The tank is then purged with inert gas so that the tank can then be left open to atmosphere before sending for crushing. The unit can also be used to drain Propane and Butane bottles.
