Cylinder Testing Station (CTS)

Your cylinder may be looked after and look fine on the outside, but unseen damage and contaminants can build up inside regardless of how well you look after it.
Regular servicing of your cylinder will ensure it is safe to use.

Cylinder valves can collect debris over time, this can, in turn, damage your gun if used for air rifles, or your regulators if used for diving. During the servicing we check the valves as well as the cylinder.

It is a requirement to have any compressed gas bottles such as your Scuba Diving and Air Gun Cylinders periodically tested.

Visual inspection
A visual inspection (visual) and valve service is required within 2 ½ years from the date of manufacture or the last hydrostatic test.

Hydrostatic test
A hydrostatic test (hydro) and valve service is needed every 5 years from the date of manufacture or if a visual test date has been missed.

  • Visual Inspection – every 2.5 years
