CTC is not the manufacturer, it's part of the permit code - stands for "Canadian Transport Commission".

If you can, post the entire series of info stamped into the dome, andI should be able to tell you.

That tankwas made for Dacor by Luxfer. The E-6498 is the original DOT permit number that has since expired. All of the tanks with that permit number were made from the bad alloy.

The serial number starting with "P" also identifies it as a Luxfer.

Sorry for the bad news.
