LUXFER Gas Cylinders is attempting to locate a small group of Luxfer composite paintball cylinders that may not have been properly tested by a third-party inspector, Arrowhead Industrial Services.
The cylinders involved have hydrostatic test dates ranging from May through September 2005. According to the company not all cylinders from this time period are affected and most of these cylinders were sold in North America, but a limited number were sold in Europe.
The company said: \\$quot;Luxfer has verified that these cylinders are safe based on thorough testing, detailed engineering analysis and data collected from cylinders already recovered from the affected group. Even though there is no safety risk, affected cylinders remaining in the field must be recovered and tested as soon as possible for regulatory reasons.
'To determine whether a cylinder needs to be tested, please compare serial numbers of Luxfer cylinders that have hydrostatic test dates from May through September 2005 with the serial number database on the Luxfer website.'
The sample labels show how to locate the serial number and hydrostatic test date.
Once determined which cylinders, if any, need to be tested, please call Luxfer at 1-800-355-3156 in the United States or at +44 115 980 3800 in Europe, and a Luxfer customer service representative will arrange to have cylinders tested and returned to its customers at no charge. If you are calling the United States from a non-European country, please use this number: +1 951 341 5293.
