L6X® – aluminium type 1 cylinders
Luxfer’s all-aluminium SCBA and life-support cylinders have been the industry workhorses since the early 1970s.
Manufactured in Europe, Luxfer’s all-aluminium SCBA and life-support cylinders have been the industry workhorses 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 aluminium-magnesium-silicon formula was specifically designed by Luxfer metallurgists to help prevent tearing and cracking. 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: Up to 55 percent lighter in weight than comparable steel cylinders and up to 35 percent lighter than all-metal aluminium cylinders. Luxfer hoop-wrapped SCBA cylinders are non-magnetic and extremely corrosion resistant. Improved durability, fracture toughness and resistance to tearing and cracking. Notes: All cylinders have non-limited service life as long as they pass required periodic testing. All cylinders certified to TPED standards.
