Non-refillable calibration gas cylinders

Our non-refillable cylinders (also called canisters) are easy to use and ideal for applications such as function testing of gas detection equipment and instrument calibration. Their portability makes them convenient for both laboratory and field-based use.

Many mixtures, including all the common quad and test gas variants, are available in stock, and bespoke mixtures can be supplied with minimum lead time. Complete the form with your requirements and a member of the team will be in touch to answer any questions and complete your order.

Benefits of non-refillable canisters

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

Perfect for low or infrequent usage (such as in 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.

Accessorising within OEM range of gas detectors

Non-refillables are essential calibration accessories for portable and personal gas detection equipment and make an ideal addition to an OEM range of detector or safety offerings.

"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."
