The ECO LP-10 is a DOT-exempt salvage cylinder for transport or storage of leaking, damaged, or deteriorated compressed gas cylinders. The unit was designed specifically to address the transport needs of chlorine and sulfur dioxide cylinders. Fabricated of carbon steel to ASME Section VIII Division 1 standards, the vessel has a working pressure of 255 psig. Gases released inside the salvage cylinder can be withdrawn via top-mounted CGA 820 valves and either directed to an appropriate scrubber or repackaged. The ECO LP-10 vessel weighs only 325 pounds and is easily moved on its castors. It can be used for routine, secure transport of cylinders containing hazardous gases or in emergency response situations which demand rapid containment of a leaking or deteriorated cylinder. The quick-closure hatch is easily opened and closed by one person, even when fully attired in chemical protective clothing.
