Natural gas vehicles that are removed from service have natural gas tanks installed that must be disposed of safely. In many cases, these reservoirs are still under high pressure (up to 200 bar). Apex takes care of the proper disposal of these storage tanks.
The main steps are:
Determination of the effective natural gas pressure in the tank
Inactivation of the pipe burst protection
Depressurizing the vessel by safe suction and prevention of gas leakage into the atmosphere
Removing the bottle fittings
Inerting of the tank
Rendering the container unusable
Scrapping of the components
Price: from CHF 250 per container (excl.VAT) for delivery to Apex (or with collection surcharge)
Before accidents happen, ask us.
