Our cylinder remanufacturing process is as follows

Cylinders are disassembled and properly inspected. This includes cleaning, disassembly and complete assessment including critical measurement, material verification and testing and other NDT before disassembly.

Following OEM standards and specifications, it is then remanufactured

Items with a lot of wear and damage get replaced by new parts

The newly remanufactured cylinder is pressure tested according to client specification often above standard working pressure to ensure reliability in the working environment.
