    As stated in message of the thread: hydro dave. He's the ultimate answer to any hydro question in most of florida, and he is way mroe aware of all rules, regulations, and general knowledge than any hydro guy I've met. He's also very nice and can answer pretty much anything with a 5 minute phon call.

    Two different cylinders enter the arena for discussion. Possibly a foreign cylinder and then the special permit or exemption cylinder. Complete pictures of the stamped markings on the crown will start to unravel the clues. Please post complete legible pictures. Stop speculating, spreading misinformation and gossip. Your federal government published a CFR about this stuff. ...........and then comment....go.........not ..yet....caveporn...hello!....nevermind.......at work.......................................

    Per ? 180.209 Requirements for requalification of specification cylinders.

    Foreign cylinder (see ? 173.301(j) of this subchapter for restrictions on use) As marked on cylinder, but not less than 5/3 of any service or working pressure marking 5 (see ?? 180.209(l) and 180.213(d)(2)).

    (l)Requalification of foreign cylinders filled for export. A cylinder manufactured outside the United States, other than as provided in ?? 171.12(a) and 171.23(a) of this subchapter, that has not been manufactured, inspected, tested and marked in accordance with part 178 of this subchapter may be filled with compressed gas in the United States, and shipped solely for export if it meets the following requirements, in addition to other requirements of this subchapter:

    (1) It has been inspected, tested and marked (with only the month and year of test) in conformance with the procedures and requirements of this subpart or the Associate Administrator has authorized the filling company to fill foreign cylinders under an alternative method of qualification; and

    (2) It is offered for transportation in conformance with the requirements of ? 171.12(a)(4) or ? 171.23(a)(4) of this subchapter.


    So to sum up, you can get it tested, and that is good for one fill and then you must export the cylinder.

    That is the law, any hydro facility that says otherwise is breaking the law

    Any fill facility that is filling your foreign built tank more than one time is breaking the law and in fact if even filling it once without knowing your purpose to export is breaking the law

    But you want to get a hydro so you can fool the ignorant into breaking the law... or are worried about their safety. if the second good on you, seriously but the legalities still are a problem.

    I truly don't understand your interpretation of this law as it applies to this cylinder. As I stated before, it has a DOT number on it(DOT-E12079), it has been hydroed before in 2010, and I have no intention of exporting it, ever. And why does this rule not apply to my OMS Faber98's, which have been hydro-tested several time by several different hydro stations in several different states, and are clearly stamped that they were made in Italy?

    Nothing to do with country of origin. Faber can't stamp every tank with every countries special marks. See the link. There MIGHT be a rule about ONLY using Bar OR psi OR kPA, etc. So, they have to be stamped differently.
