Luxfer introduce exclusive SGS™ technology

16 September 2013

NYSE:LXFR

RIVERSIDE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Luxfer Gas Cylinders will introduce a new range of specially manufactured all-aluminum specialty gas cylinders at the GAWDA Annual Convention in Orlando, Florida, September 15-18. The new cylinders feature Luxfer’s exclusive SGS™ internal surface designed to provide superior gas stability.

“Our SGS interior is conducive to better gas stability and improved shelf life for high-purity specialty gases and gas blends,” said Orion Goe, Luxfer’s U.S. marketing manager. “These are premium cylinders for premium gases.”

The SGS interior is achieved by processing a cylinder through a series of proprietary, time-sensitive manufacturing operations that produce a consistent, better-performing internal surface. Luxfer commissioned an independent lab to analyze and compare internal surface characteristics of conventional specialty gas cylinders to cylinders with the SGS interior. All resulting test data clearly indicate that cylinders with SGS interiors are superior to standard cylinders in terms of both visual appearance and post-heat-treatment surface characteristics. “With SGS, specialty gas manufacturers and users now have the advantage of transporting and storing high-value gases in cylinders manufactured specifically for that purpose,” Goe said.

Luxfer is initially offering the SGS interior option in DOT- and TC-approved 1-liter, 6-liter, 29.5-liter, 46-liter, and 47.5-liter cylinder sizes. Cylinders can be ordered with customer-specified paint and markings, as well as all thread and neck configurations available with standard cylinders, including valve protecting carrying handles and cap-and-collar assemblies.
