Need More Storage Capacity?

If your application requires more propane, a larger tank or an additional propane tank can be installed to meet demand requirements. Ask us about 10,000 gallon; 18,000 gallon; or 30,000 gallon propane tank storage capacity.

Propane Tanks for Construction

Whether your propane storage requirements are year-round or seasonal, our technical experts will conduct a free onsite analysis of BTU requirements, the number and type of heaters required, and design requirements. We will specify and install the right propane cylinders or tanks, vapourizers, regulators, and valves.

When it comes to tank size, vapourization matters. For a propane appliance to work, the vapourization rate must be ample enough to deliver the required amount of propane. Our expert technicians perform a site visit to assess applications and vapourization requirements. They will install a propane vapourizer if required to meet the demands of your applications and equipment.

Central propane systems provide off-grid developments with clean-burning, economical propane from a single, centralized location. Community propane systems offer builders and developers a flexible and scalable energy option that makes communities more appealing by offering gas applications such as space heating, water heating, kitchen appliances and standby generators, as well as the convenience of a metered gas system.

Overcome the challenges of a cold winter with a propane tank heater. It ensures that you have heat and power when you need it most. A portable electric heater increases the vapour pressure in your propane tank so that you never experience low propane pressure. A Superior Propane technician will install it for you when the temperatures start to drop.
