    Good luck getting a steel cylinder to ever be perfectly gray inside

    real easy when you can sandblast at a lower pressure using glass beads.

    My hydro shop soda or bead blasts rusty tanks. They can also get epoxy liners out of most lp72s this way. But that's always before hydro, so they still come out slightly orange/brown.

    Sometimes there is an anti-rust rinse that is used to prevent flash rusting in steel tanks. It can sometimes leave a grey to black coating...

    Cleaned tank for use with O2 PP blending needs to be free from residue. Shot blasting then rinse with very hot steam (kettle with tube on spout) then quick dry with clean compressed air (double filtered)
    that usually sorts it and it dries without brown rust marks

    I found I had more rust colour with really hot water than just warm water. I only look after my own tanks so I don't get much practice.
