Seamless Type 1 steel cylinders are designed and manufactured to the very highest standards. They are recognised as the most robust, safe and long-lasting high pressure gas cylinders available worldwide.

Type 1 cylinders are the standard storage vessels for the hydrogen sector globally, thanks to their longevity giving excellent through life value. They are recognised as the safest way in which to store hydrogen at high pressure.

NOTE: As the originator of the revalidation testing and re-accreditation programmes (BS 8562 and EN 16753) we are able to provide innovative and cost effective solutions to cylinder re-validation, therefore providing competitive through life costs.

Static Storage

Many of the world’s leading gas storage companies rely on CSC for the design, manufacture and installation of their storage systems, as well as the ongoing maintenance and certification.

Our ability to supply complex bespoke cylinder assemblies, has been a key factor in securing various prestigious contracts worldwide, and has seen us participate in a wide range of industrial, high pressure, gas storage projects around the globe.

Applications include:

  • CNG Filling stations for Swedish public transport
  • Gas storage for the Sydney Opera house in Australia
  • Emergency backup & fire fighting systems in nuclear power stations
  • Air storage for wind tunnels in Indian Space research centres
  • Product water capacity up to 3,000L
  • Working pressures up to 600 bar

CSC designs and manufactures tubes for mounting on jumbo tube trailers used in the transportation of gaseous hydrogen. These bulk high pressure cylinders are specifically-designed for trailer mounting and can be optimised for individual applications. We are also renowned for our in-house re-testing, refurbishing and re-qualification of all seamless steel and composite cylinders (all sizes and configurations) used in the transportation of high pressure hydrogen and for use in other gas markets.

 

Key Facts:

  • Total trailer capacity 24,000L
  • Typical working pressure 150 bar – 250 bar
  • Composite cylinder working pressure up to 500 bar
  • Typical gases:
    • CNG
    • Hydrogen
    • Helium
    • Ethylene
    • Carbon Dioxide
  • On-site and in-house testing capability

  • Certification

NOTE: We are able to provide innovative and cost effective solutions to cylinder re-validation, including Acoustic Emission testing, therefore providing competitive through life costs.

 

Certification:

Certification procedures are meticulously carried out for both the cylinders and the trailer unit. As a cylinder manufacturer Chesterfield Special Cylinders are well versed in the full documentation requirements for all the world’s leading approvals bodies and international standards, whether for new cylinders or at re-test. In addition, the mandatory ADR certification for the road trailer unit is provided.

Multi-Pack Gas-Trailer

As the demand for the transportation of different gases around the world increases, added flexibility is required in the supply chain. Here at CSC, we have the design and manufacturing capability to offer a wide range of Multi-Element Gas Containment solutions.

500-bar Hydrogen

CSC are at the forefront of innovation technology utilising our experience, in house design and engineering capabilities we have developed a 500 bar hydrogen trailer which has facilitated the new demand for the refuelling process for Hydrogen vehicles. This achievement clearly illustrates our expertise and knowledge making the trailer a leading player within the sector for future fuel transportation.

Re-Testing

As a designer & manufacturer of cylinders, Chesterfield Special Cylinders has the expertise and in-house capability to re-test and refurbish all sizes of high pressure gas cylinders including those used for gas transportation.

Trailer refurbishment is an extremely attractive option, when faced with new contract opportunities requiring new bodywork, liveries and chassis modifications or to simply maintain your existing fleet.
