fire extingusher tanks, have alot of em. selling.

Unread postAuthor: jhalek90 » Tue Aug 23, 2011 11:43 am

As the title says, i picked up about 15 fire extinguisher tanks, and am just wondering if anyone wants to buy one, or a few.

They are a variety of sizes, some of them are still in hydro.
Hydro pressure tests range from 240psi to 750psi.

Valves are not included, but some of the tanks have 3/4'' NPT

If anyone is interested, a few bucks plus shipping, and ill send you one.
We can make the transaction over ebay, to make it easy.

$5-10 (plus shipping)

Many new ones for $15-$20 US.

Here due to the cost of having a pressure vessel hydrostaticly tested, out of date extinguishers are often replaced instead of re-tested. The tanks here are considered scrap metal. I can pick them up for scrap prices from the local refiller. I presume you got a good deal on the bone pile. Many fire extinguisher service places. re-use the powder as it has been stored dry and is fine for re-use in a more expensive extinguisher.

Not out of date one's, just go to a fire depo and ask if they have any old ones they want to get rid of, If they ask why you need them say your making a super power water gun that runs at 50-100psi or someshit for a science project.

Thats how i got one. I asked a fireman near a truck he asked me why and I said it was for a school project, they had a few in a bin at the back, worst case you don't get one.

Doubt you will find one hear with 3/4'' threads all the one's iv had are just a tiny bit bigger then 1/2'' thread so i epoxy a pipe nipple in there its held 750psi over night, just be sure to cover the hole inside with a anti rust paint.

Not the disposable ones. They do not have a valve screwed in it.

I asked at my local fire depo, they told me they sent all the tanks they received to "company X"

Company X, when asked if i could have a few, responded with "Do you have a big truck?" I can fit about 100 of them in the bed of my Chevy S-10

There is about 400-500 there that i can have. I'm really only looking to cover shipping cost, and my gas/time expense.

If anyone wants one, or more, just pay shipping, and a few bucks for my time and gas.


EDIT: first post edited to state i only need enough $$ to cover shipping, and my expense. $5-$10 (plus shipping)

Also, i MAY be able to get some 1/8'' NPT gauges and valves from there as well, but it looks like the valves have had the stems removed...?
