Trends in specialty gas containment


Luxfer Gas Cylinders has been at the forefront of developing portable gas cylinders that can maintain high levels of gas stability and purity.

The main challenge is to reduce the reactivity of certain gases with alloys in the metal container, reactions to the metal interior surfaces in a pressurised environment, and to reduce the possibility of moisture retention.

Gas stability within a cylinder means that the composition of a gas or gas mixture will remain within a defined and acceptable limit for a designated period. There are many factors that can affect the gas stability in a cylinder, these include reactions occurring within the gases themselves, pressure, the length of storage time, temperature variations and moisture.
