These cylinders are ideal for weight-critical, high-strength and 100 percent reliability applications.
With more than 100 different models designed and qualified at pressures up to 10,000 psi, we have a lightweight Type III cylinder to meet your needs.
Constructed of carbon, fiberglass or hybrid (KEVLAR/Fiberglass) composite, with high-strength aluminum liners, our composite cylinders have led the industry since 1956. They are primarily used in markets including aerospace, life support, alternative fuels and industrial gas. In addition to the widely popular Type III cylinder construction, production capabilities include Type II and Type IV composite reinforced cylinders providing lightweight, durable options.
