What is the Liquigas Lite Cylinder?

Liquigas Lite is the next generation gas cylinder with additional benefits to the traditional steel cylinder. These cylinders are extremely lightweight, attractive in both colour and shape, rust and corrosion proof and UV resistant.

The fibre glass composite layer gives it high tensile strength and makes the cylinder lightweight and UV resistant, whilst the heavy-duty polyethylene casing makes it resistant to rough handling and logistics.

Liquigas Lite cylinders comply with all the globally recognised accreditations and safety standards and are subject to multiple tests including hydraulic proof pressure, hydraulic volumetric expansion, cylinder burst, leaks, high temperatures and fire resistance.
