    Default Refilling AIRCO cylinder

    Since AIRCO is out of business how do I go about having a cylider marked AICO refilled? Been in my possesion since 1990's. Just now needing refilling and pressure check. 330 cu ft. Thanks

    Call your local gas supplier and find out what they say.

    You should probably take it to the LWS where you exchange cylinders. They will examine it and determine whether it is refillable and whether it needs a new hydrotesting stamp.

    Many years ago when I moved to California, I had a set of oxy-Acetylene tanks that were bought in Illinois. They were National Cylinder Gas (NCG). NCG had gone out of business. I went to three different LWS's and none would take them but a small independent company did. I had to pay a small fee for hydrostatic testing on each tank but they exchanged them for two of their own and all was fine thereafter. The small company was eventually bought out by AirGas.

    There are some cylinders in the system that are dating from WWII so it has to do with condition rather than age.

    Good luck!

    Cool

    I see AIRCO Air Reduction Corp cylinders Airgas drops off at work. They may just keep it saying they own AIRCO cylinders now. Let us know how it works out...Bob
