Cylinder Recertifications & Repairs

Recertification

We can recertify ALL SIZES of STEEL, ALUMINUM, and FIBERGLASS/COMPOSITE cylinders

The date on the cylinder is the date it was recertified, so expiry date is 10 years from the date on
steel and aluminum cylinders and 5 years from the date on fiberglass/composite cylinders

NOTE: As of November 2017, we can now retest cylinders with either a DOT or TC stamp

Repairs and re-certifications are done at our Lake City Way Showroom in Burnaby

Cylinders can be dropped off and picked up from our Main St. Refueling Station in Vancouver

Steel & Aluminum Cylinders

Steel and aluminum cylinders require recertification every 10 years

POL, OPD, and QUICK-FILL valves are replaceable

Some horizontal tanks may not be eligible for recertification, as the valve required is discontinued
— Please contact us if you have any questions about your horizontal cylinder

 

We also stock RECYCLED CYLINDERS

  • Refurbished and valid for another 10 years
  • Sandblasted, re-painted, re-valved to look new


Recycled cylinders cost less and reduce your impact on the environment!

Fiberglass/Composite Cylinders

Fibreglass/Composite cylinders require visual recertification every 5 years, and have a lifespan of 15 years after manufacture date.

Fibreglass cylinder valves and o-rings cannot be replaced. If the cylinder is leaking, it must be taken out of service.

Forklift Cylinder Recertification

Most cylinders only have 1 valve to replace, but forklift cylinders have
several valves/ports that 
can be replaced during recertification

Cost of the recertification covers replacement of relief valve and new
recertification stamp. If any 
of the other valves/ports are damaged or not
up to code, they will be replaced as well at extra cost.

**Staff will always phone the customer to confirm extra recertification costs**
