CAAR is pleased to announce the launch of a new voluntary decal program to help assist in the easy identification of post weld and non-post weld heated anhydrous ammonia tanks and nurse wagons.

CAAR has developed the new voluntary industry-led decal program to support retailers and tank owners in readily differentiating between 3 year and 5 year testing frequencies under the new CSA B620-14 standard.

Under the new CSA B620-14 standard, non-post weld heat treated tanks require hydrostatic testing every three (3) years. Post weld heat treated tanks require hydrostatic testing every 5 years. Both tank types require visual inspection annually.

The new decals are meant to be a clear visual supporting the information found on the tank’s data plate. The program is voluntary and not regulated by Transport Canada.

“CAAR has heard the concern voiced by members regarding accessibility of tank data plates. This isn’t replacing the data plate, it’s supporting the information found on it. It’s a matter of efficiency in ensuring that operators filling the tank have a quick access point to clear information regarding the status of the tank while ensuring that tank owners are aware of and in compliance with regulatory changes,” says Mitch Rezansoff, executive director of CAAR.

The decals are available for purchase through the CAAR Mart program, which allows for online ordering and secure payment and generally ships orders within 2 business days. Rush service is available upon request. To order online today, please click here.
