Cylinder Testing Station (CTS) is an IDEST accredited test centre for steel, aluminium and composite cylinders and we are based in Redditch, in the West Midlands.

Our team of skilled and accredited engineers are qualified to provide visual and hydrostatic tests, as well as O2 cleaning. Valve strip down, service and rebuild is included as part of our cylinder testing, so you can be sure that your cylinder is totally safe to use.

Every cylinder we test will have a picture taken from the inside of the cylinder to show you any damage, corrosion, rust or other damages that have occurred during the use of the cylinder.

Failed valves are replaced and fitted with a new valve. Failed valves and cylinders are not returned (it’s the law!).

After successful testing, cylinders will be returned full of clean air or Nitrox and ready for use.

In addition, CTS also tests Fire Brigade BA cylinders.

Cylinders should be dropped off at our Scuba School Ltd premises in Studley and will be sent to our Cylinder Testing Station (CTS) to be tested and returned the following week.

A £15 deposit is required at the time of dropping the Cylinder in for a test, which will be taken off the final cost of the test.
