How hot can you store a propane tank?
Then, what temperature can a propane tank withstand?
At -44 degrees F or lower, propane stays as a liquid, there is little vapor and propane appliances won't function properly. Therefore, for appliances to work correctly, a propane tank must usually be kept in an area with a temperature greater than -44 degrees F.
Similarly, is it OK to store propane tank in garage? Propane Tanks Always store propane tanks outside or in well-ventilated areas — never in your garage or other enclosed spaces. If you store a propane tank in the garage and a leak develops, it will only take a small flame from a pilot light or a match to cause a fire.
Also question is, can a propane tank explode from heat?
A propane tank BLEVE will occur when the container is subject to extreme heat, such as in a fire. While the tank is being heated, the liquid propane inside is being heated causing it to expand. If flames or a source of ignition is present, the propane will ignite resulting in an explosion.
Where do you store propane tanks in the summer?
We recommend that you store tanks in a shaded or cool ventilated area. Do not bring your tank indoors. Storage outside of buildings should be located at least 5 feet (1.5 M) from any doorway or opening.
