Lightweight, reliable Luxfer SCBA cylinders provide respiratory protection in industrial environments when hazardous situations occur. Suited for both fire and non-fire applications, Luxfer's industrial cylinders are ideal for environments where air is contaminated and oxygen levels are low.
Categories: SCBA and life-support
Based on international design standards, Luxfer LCX-EL cylinders have the potential for service lives of up to 30 years (subject to regulatory review and approval). In environments where SCBA use is intermittent, LCX-EL cylinders provide fire service and industrial users the opportunity to use cylinders longer than the 15 years defined for standard carbon composite cylinders.
Features and benefits:
Notes: All cylinders are certified to DOT-SP 14232.
In 1997, Luxfer introduced its LCX line of ultra-lightweight composite cylinders fully wrapped with aerospace-grade carbon fiber. LCX composites are now the most widely used SCBA and life-support cylinders in North America. Available in a wide range of sizes, LCX cylinders are up to 70 percent lighter in weight than steel cylinders and up to 30 percent lighter than all-aluminum cylinders with the same gas capacity. All carbon-wrapped models have a five-year requalification cycle. LCX cylinders are approved to applicable U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and Transport Canada (TC) standards and are designed and manufactured to meet all NFPA, NIOSH and OEM requirements.
Notes: All cylinders have a 15-year service life. All cylinders are certified to DOT-SP 10195.
Luxfer's all-aluminum SCBA and life-support cylinders have been the industry workhorse in North America since the early 1970s. Since 1988, Luxfer has manufactured these cylinders from its own proprietary version of 6061-T6 alloy. Now marketed as L6X, this exclusive aluminum-magnesium-silicon formula was specifically designed by Luxfer metallurgists. More than 40 million L6X all-metal and composite cylinders in service around the world have an exemplary record for safety and dependability.
Features and benefits:
Notes: All cylinders have non-limited service life as long as they pass required periodic testing. All cylinders are certified to DOT-3AL/TC-3ALM.
