I suspect that the Lite Cylinder recall may seriously harm Ragasco's business.
Ya THINK! If minimum wage'ers at the LP filling station are going to refuse to fill a Ragasco just because they can't tell the difference then that will pretty much kill Ragasco's chance of ever selling another one AND kill composite tanks in general. What an effin' mess just because Lite Cylinder didn't take the governing regulations seriously. And there's not a thing anyone can do. It just sucks.I suspect that the Lite Cylinder recall may seriously harm Ragasco's business.
Found this on one of the PDFs on the DOT/PHMSA recall website: "DOT-SP 13105 (Only if manufactured by The Lite Cylinder Company. CylindersUpdate on rogasco tanks;
Rogasco (in US) is selling every tank they have, swamped with orders. They have no documentation that specifically shows their tanks to Not be involved in the recall.
Note that Composite Scandanavia did have DOT include thier tanks in the order, specifically stating they were Not involved. I commented to the Rogasco rep that she might want to get something from DOT that similarly states they are Not involved. As it stands, a careful reading of the recall order states that only LCC tanks are involved and the numbers associated with those tanks. Problem with that approach is, the person reading the recall must be smart enough to conclude that if the Rogasco tank is not mentioned in the order it must not be involved, and thus its OK to fill it. Theres a difference between a negative and positive defense, legally.
I was unable to connect composite scandanavia and rogasco. Apparently the home company is not too interested in its US operation.Found this on one of the PDFs on the DOT/PHMSA recall website: "DOT-SP 13105 (Only if manufactured by The Lite Cylinder Company. Cylinders
manufactured by Composite Scandinavia [M0408] and marked with this number are not subject to the recall)"
Composite Scandinavia is Rogasco.
