EIGA Technical Bulletin 18/16 - Long time durability of steel gas cylinders

EIGA members have received information that some countries are introducing limits on the lifespan of steel gas cylinders.  Other countries have raised the question if steel cylinders should have a limited lifespan. 

A further question has been raised regarding whether the lifespan of acetylene cylinders should have a specified limit.

This Technical Bulletin states the EIGA position on the lifespan of gas cylinders and provides information regarding the design, in-service practices, maintenance and lifespan expectations of gas cylinders. 

It is intended to assist in any discussions relating to the lifespan of gas cylinders.
