Luxfer manufactures the widest range of cylinders in the World


Setting the Standard Worldwide

Luxfer Gas Cylinders is the world´s largest manufacturer of aluminium and composite high-pressure gas cylinders for gas storage. From manufacturing facilities in the United Kingdom, France, United States, China and India, Luxfer supplies high-performance products to customers in more than 50 countries.

A legacy of gas-containment innovation
Aluminium gas cylinders were invented in 1941 in France by Luxfer France (then known as Société Métallurgique de Gerzat). Luxfer invented the cold-extruded, seamless aluminium cylinder in the mid-1950s and began manufacturing its first cylinders in the United Kingdom. It began producing aluminium cylinders in the United States in 1972. In 1976, Luxfer added fibre-glass-reinforced, hoopwrapped cylinders to its growing product range, followed by full-wrapped models ten years later. In 1997, the company introduced ultra-lightweight composite cylinders fully wrapped with aerospace-grade carbon fibre. These technological advancements helped make Luxfer the world´s leading supplier of life-support cylinders for firefighters and other emergency personnel. Medical cylinders are another important market, for which Luxfer manufactures a wide range of aluminium and composite models. Luxfer manufactures products for a wide variety of other applications, including cylinders for industrial and speciality gases; beverage cylinders; and fire extinguisher cylinders. Over the years, Luxfer Gas Cylinders has introduced many major innovations in gas containment, including its patented higher-strength L7X® aluminium alloy and its advanced composite technologies.

Composite product growth
In recent years, Luxfer innovations in lightweight composite products, including its IOS® Intelligent Oxygen System with patented SmartFlow® technology, have led to rapid growth in the oxygen therapy sector. Another major growth product is large carbon composite cylinders for storage of compressed natural gas used in alternative fuel (AF) vehicles, including trucks, buses and automobiles. From its state-of-the-art facility in Riverside, California, Luxfer supplies an expanding range of AF cylinders to customers around the world. Luxfer also operates an exclusive European centre in Italy that supplies both cylinders and complete AF systems.
