The Portable Tank Advanced is used to store gasses. It has a higher volume than the Gas Canister or Gas Canister (Smart).

The maximum pressure for the tank is 20.265 MPa, or 200 atmospheres. Over pressurizing the tank will cause it to explode. Once the maximum pressure is reached the tank starts taking damage until it bursts. This allows the Portable Tank Advanced to exceed the pressure rating temporarily.


The Portable Tank Advanced can be connected/disconnected to pipe networks using a Tank Connector, by placing the tank on the connector and then interacting with it using a Wrench. It can also be connected (and disconnected) to the Rover and Lander

The front of the tank features a striped area where a Gas Canister or Gas Canister (Smart) can be inserted for refilling (equalizing the pressure in both canisters). There is also a variable flow rate valve on the top of the tank that can be used to vent the tank to atmosphere (or into a sealed room). Note that this valve does not need to be opened when connected to a Tank Connector, but the setting of the valve remains persistent between connection and disconnection.


The visual bar will remain grey until 10.132 MPa, then the bar will begin to fill until once past 20.265 MPa the display will begin to blink red and damage to the tank occurs.
