Luxfer offers a broad range of cylinders for firefighting and hazmat needs. Whether you need lighter-weight, smaller, more durable or higher-pressure cylinders, Luxfer has products you can count on.
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.
