    Default How high pressure cylinders are made

    Saw this a while ago and since we were talking about tanks on a post ,I thought I would post it.

    I've wondered how much pressure they apply when they hydro-test the cylinders. Didn't hear them say in the video.

    Usually 1.5 times the rated cylinder pressure.

    BD1,

    Very informative and also scary seeing the process and pressures involved.

    Don't even want to think about accidents..........................

    Wonder if the lube (unknown) shown in the video would work for my
    bandsaw in cutting exotic alloys like titanium.
    Thermal Arc GTSW400, Airco Heliwelder II, Miller Dynasty 350, Hypertherm 1000, oxy-fuel setup, metal cutting bandsaw, air compressor, drill press, etc.:

    Call me the "Clouseau" of welding !
