RIVERSIDE, Calif. (July 23, 2002)—Luxfer Gas Cylinders has introduced a new, 200-cubic-foot, 3,000-psi aluminum cylinder for industrial and specialty gas applications.

The new N-200 joins Luxfer’s existing N-150 (150-cubic-foot ) and N-265 (265-cubic-foot) models, creating the widest range of large-capacity aluminum cylinders in the industry.

Manufactured from Luxfer’s proprietary, high-strength 6061 aluminum alloy, the N-200 features a compact design that is 8.6 inches in diameter and 41 inches tall. The new cylinder is available with either straight or tapered threads.

“We designed this more economical intermediate package specifically for customers who wanted a cylinder size larger than our N-150 and smaller than our N-265,” said Jack Ward, Luxfer’s market manager for industrial and specialty gas cylinders. “This package is an ideal answer for those who are concerned about stress corrosion cracking in steel cylinders in CO/CO2 mix service.”
