Non-refillable cylinders - calibration gas

Non-refillable calibration gas cylinders

Light, convenient and easy to use

Non-refillable cylinders, also known as canisters, are typically used for function testing of gas detection and analytical equipment where portability is paramount or gas usage is relatively low.

Many mixtures, reactive or non-reactive, including all the common quad and test gas variants, are available from stock and bespoke mixtures can be supplied with minimum lead time.

Calibration Gas
Disposable Test Gas Cylinders for On-Site Function Testing 

Non-refillable cylinders are exceptionally portable and ideal for on-site calibration of gas detectors.

Users of small quantities of gas or with limited space

For low or infrequent usage (such as research or educational institutions) where gas is needed only for specific experiments.

Global Users of Specialty Gases

The lightweight and compact nature of non-refillable cylinders reduces their transport costs dramatically.

"Our business relies on simple bump testing of gas detectorson board marine vessels. Complex high pressure cylinders and regulators would make the job too difficult but we find the Air Products non-refillable offerings very easy to use and the equipment is simple to operate."

"We are involved in the installation, commissioning and maintenance of a wide range of gas detection equipment into many market sectors. The fact that the Air Products’ range covers all of the flammable, toxic, quad-gas and corrosive gas requirements for this market is very important to us."

Autochim, France

"Personal, portable and fixed gas detection equipment is widely used in many safety critical applications and these items are often subjected to relatively harsh environments and working conditions. The gas sensing element within this equipment is perhaps the most fragile and crucial component, and if this was to fail, it would render the equipment useless. The selection of appropriate test gas is important to ensure the bump test is carried out correctly and as an active member of CoGDEM, Air Products know about it. They have contributed to the CoGDEM Guide to Gas Detection, a new hardback reference book which explains best practice and aids the selection of suitable test gases and equipment."
