Thread: non DOT hydro

  1. #1

    Crying non DOT hydro

    Who is willing to hydro a Faber 15liter tank with euro markings?
    Even a couple of fire ext shops up here won't.

    Probably the issue you'll have is they need the test piece that attaches to neck threads. Not too many people in the US doing hudro would carry them.

    Are these some of those infamous tanks add helium brought in?

    please post your findings... I have one of these tanks also and I'd be curious to know what you find out.

    I could be mistaken on the facts here but, I believe we contacted our hydro facility once about a stell tank from South Africa and I think the deal was hydro it but would be good for only 1 fill, weird, I know, and I believe that was an official procedure, and not just what someone was simply willing to do.

    very standard 3/4" neck. Has ser number, fill and hydro test pressure in bar. Most hydro shops consider it a liability, since there is no DOT traceability, and plus, legally, you need a DOT for US transport.
    The usual way out is to specify the fills are done on board a boat, which is the general case here.

    But what are the threads? The thread soze/pitch is the issue. The test piece has to thread onto the valve securely

    Weird. I thought Euro cylinders have different threads typically.
