Disposing of Your Canister Correctly

While it’s easy to enjoy the unrivalled coverage provided by TensorGrip® products, you may think that disposing of the canister is nowhere near as simple.  

But you couldn’t be more wrong ...

However, for all of our canister-based products, although it’s relatively straightforward,  from a practical and health standpoint  it’s crucial you know how to dispose of them correctly.

Step 1

Make sure you close the valve of the canister you’re getting rid of.

Step 2

Purge the gun and hose.

Step 3

Disconnect the hose from your empty canister.

Step 4

Connect the hose to your new canister.

Step 5

Open the valve of your new canister.

Step 6

Purge the gun through.

Step 7

Lay the old canister on its side with the valve pointing away from you.

Step 8

Open the canister valve and release any residual pressure.

Step 9

Use a brass punch to pierce a hole in the disc at the top of the canister.

Step 10

Once the canister has been punctured and degassed, it can be put it with your scrap metal waste or disposed of in accordance with your local waste disposal regulation.

And that’s it ...
