Advanced Materials

Manufactured from a seamless aluminum liner and over wrapped with carbon fiber in an epoxy matrix. An external layer of glass fiber in an epoxy matrix is then wrapped onto the cylinder. This external layer of glass fiber is applied to enhance the resistance of the cylinder to impact and abrasion in service. Following a high temperature curing of the epoxy matrix, an external gel coat is applied to the surface of the cylinder, providing a smooth, easily cleaned surface for the cylinder.

Choose from a broad range of compressed air cylinders to configure breathing apparatus to your individual requirements. Dräger offers a complete range of 200 bar and 300 bar steel and composite cylinders. Sizes range from 4 L 200 bar to 9L 300bar with a choice of cylinder valves.
