What is hydro-testing and why does my cylinder need to be hydro-tested?
Hydro-testing is a method to test pressure cylinders for strength and leaks, ensuring they are within the U.S. Department of Transportation's safety standards. The test involves filling the cylinder with water and pressurizing the vessel to a specified test pressure to detect leaks and pressure loss. Strength is tested by measuring any permanent deformities of the container. Using this test maintains safety standards and durability of a cylinder over time. Testing pressure cylinders for transport and gas storage is very important as such containers can sheer if they fail under pressure. If your cylinders are in need of testing, give us a call today!

Does Universal Cylinder Services fill CO2?
As a convenience for our customers, we do fill beverage grade CO₂ on-site. Many of our customers use the CO₂ for soda machines, brewing beer, aquariums, or to fill their tires.
