Risks, Safety and Design – Fire and Pressurised Gas Cylinders

There is a complex relationship between pressurised gas cylinders and fire. On the one hand, pressurised oxygen can pose a real fire risk, and home users of medical oxygen need to be aware of the hazard, and take steps to minimise risk. On the other hand, pressurised breathing air is essential to firefighters in their [...]

Lightening the load – The benefit of lightweight composite gas cylinders

The weight of a gas cylinder makes a huge difference in terms of its real world usability, especially in weight-sensitive industries and in applications where portability is essential. This desire to cut the weight of cylinders has been the primary driver behind the development and continued adoption of Composite Overwrapped Pressure Vessels (COPVs). Today, composite [...]
