RIVERSIDE, Calif. (May 15, 2007) – Luxfer Gas Cylinders introduced its new line of LCX-SL Super-Light SCBA cylinders at the 2007 Fire Department Instructors’ Conference (FDIC) and exhibition recently held in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Luxfer’s LCX–SL cylinders help minimize the risk of occupational strain or injury by combining high-performance features with weight reductions of up to 1.5 pounds.

FDIC is the largest instructor/training fire event in the United States, attracting more than 26,000 participants and visitors each year with in hands-on training sessions and instructor development courses.

France Meder, Luxfer’s SCBA marketing manager, said: “FDIC is an extremely important show for Luxfer and, as long-term exhibitors, we were especially delighted with reaction to our new LCX-SL products, particularly among trainers and OEMs who appreciate the benefit of added weight savings. For example, when fighting a fire in a high-rise, multi-story building, a firefighter might need to carry five or six cylinders. Using LCX-SL cylinders could cut five or six pounds off the firefighter’s load. That’s a significant weight savings when you’re climbing a long distance.”

Available in a wide range of capacities and specifications, Luxfer’s LCX-SL cylinders offer a full 15-year lifetime warranty along with a five-year re-qualification period.
