Lightness

In the international market, there are four types of cylinders and they are distinguishable by the following characteristics:

  • Type 1 cylinders: completely made of metal.
  • Type 2 cylinders: metallic liner, partially reinforced with a continuous resin-impregnated filament fibre.
  • Type 3 cylinders: metallic liner, totally reinforced with a continuous resin-impregnated filament fibre.
  • Type 4 cylinders: non-metallic liner, totally reinforced with a continuous resin-impregnated filament fibre.

The table in the technical sheet compares the weights of the four types of cylinders according to their geometric capacity (volume).

At equal capacity, CTS cylinders are the lightest cylinders on the market, with approximately 30% less weight than Type 3 cylinders (composite cylinders with aluminium liner) and 4 times lighter than Type 1 cylinders (steel cylinders).
