Removing the fiber from an HPA tank?

by Target

Can I easily separate the fiber wrap from the aluminum core of a HPA tank?

Why? scrap aluminum.
The local fire dept has 400 SCBA tanks on auction . What can you do with expired tanks? Pretty much nothing....

Some drawings show a liner between the aluminum and the wrap..
I was hoping that I could band saw them in half and pop them apart like peanuts.

Does anyone have experience in cutting some apart?
