In order to accomplish our course objectives, STTS will bring to your facility and array of cargo tank replicas, valves, and fittings, specialized training modules and demonstrations.

The training replicas are working models that demonstrate the operations of each cargo tank, as well as the differences and safety devices associate with the tanks.

Cargo Tank Replicas include: MC-306, 307, 312 and 331 specification tanks and DOT-406, 407, and 412 cargo tanks.

Note: These replicas can now be purchased! Please visit this page for more information.

In addition to the Cargo Tank Replicas, STTS has also designed numerous exercises to demonstrate liquid and vapor dynamics and the properties of compressed gases. All of these unique innovations are used effectively to re-enforce and demonstrate concepts taught in the classroom.

MC-306

Displaying cable operated internal with push vent, vapor recovery, strong back dome assembly, double bulkheads and old style baffles.

DOT-406

Displaying pneumatic operated internal valve, pneumatic push vent, vapor recovery system, new style baffles with single wing nut.

MC-307/DOT-407

Displays the crash box and dome assembly with Girard pressure and vacuum vents. By changing the vents STTS is able to demonstrate some of the differences between the MC and DOT requirement. The lower shell displays the hydraulic internal valve and quick release bonnet or QRB external valve.

MC-312

These slightly different angles demonstrate the standpipe unloading system commonly used with the MC-312. This module also displays the spring operated pressure relief devise being protected by a rupture disc. Tube type crash protection is utilized as well.

DOT-412

These slightly different angles demonstrate the standpipe unloading system commonly used with the DOT-412. This module also displays a spring operated pressure relief devise that is Teflon lined.

MC-331

This module displays the cable activated Fisher valves on the pump and spray fill lines. Both the left front and right rear emergency remote shutdowns are functional as well. The pressure, temperature, percentage gauges, also shown along with fixed level valves.

Glass Tank Trucks

These unique tank truck models are highly effective in demonstrating liquid and vapor dynamics and tank to tank transfer techniques.

Hydrometer

The hydrometer is a training prop that was developed to allow the students to view propane in its liquid state. By releasing the pressure or flaring the propane the class can easily observe the reaction of the propane.

Miscellaneous Props, Valves & Accessories

This collection of classroom props, valves and accessories is used to emphasize the differences and operating principles of each tank.
