Anatomy of a Red Ball Cylinder:

  • Red Ball Cylinders are labeled with their precise mixture so you know exactly what you are using.
  • Cylinders with blended contents are equipped with mixing tubes in order to insure constant blending from lot to lot.
  • Every production lot of RBO Shielding gas is analyzed in our on-site gas lab and is guaranteed to +/- 0.5% of the specified mixture.
  • Most RBO Shielding gases are "+" filled so that you get an extra 10% of product per cylinder.
  • Cylinders are color coded to enable quick visual identification of the gas mixture in the cylinder.
  • Cylinders are valved in strict accordance with CGA recommendations.
  • Cylinders are lot numbered to enable tracability back to the laboratory analysis.
  • All cylinders undergo a rigorous Prefill inspection each time they are filled to insure the optimum customer safety.
  • All RBO Shielding gas cylinders are marked in strict accordance with DOT regulations.
  • All Cylinder maintenance (e.g. Hydrostatic testing, Valve maintenance, and corrosion resistance) is done on site at our Shreveport fill plant.
