L7X® cylinders—In Europe and Australia, Luxfer also offers industrial and specialty gas cylinders made from Luxfer’s higher strength L7X® (7,000-series) aluminum alloy, for which Luxfer holds exclusive global patents on two different alloy versions, as well as specialized manufacturing methods (E.U. Patent 0,694,084 and U.S. Patent 5,932,037). L7X cylinder advantages include higher-pressure filling and significantly more gas capacity with no increase in cylinder size or noticeable weight gain.
Luxfer aluminum cylinders are cycle tested in excess of 100,000 cycles at service pressure to ensure dependable performance. Up to 40% lighter in weight than comparable steel cylinders, Luxfer aluminum cylinders are also highly corrosion-resistant and well suited to low temperature applications. These non-magnetic cylinders may be safely used near magnetic-sensitive equipment, including high technology scanning devices.
