  • As part of our commitment to you we never stop imagining new and useful equipment. This year we are proud to introduce the new Cylinder Thread Viewer.  Use of our thread viewer ensures precision and accuracy during your visual inspections.

    Proper visual inspection of a cylinder requires examination of the internal threads and threading on the valve. A visual inspector needs to ensure that the two items function properly and don’t have obvious damage. Many people mistake a Tap Stop with a crack. Tap stop marks can be found during many routine checks of a cylinders threads. Cracks are dangerous, but rare. However a Tap stop is often confused with a crack. When someone locates a tap stop, they erroneously condemn the cylinder thinking it is a crack.

    Inspectors using the new Cylinder Thread Viewer will feel confident that the cylinder is safe and ready to return to use.

  • D.E.T. Tube - $50.00
    Damage Estimation Training (DET) Tube. A tool to help an inspector learn to estimate damage within a cylinder....

  • During an internal inspection of a cylinder the inspector needs to estimate the extent of damage within a cylinder. Pitting or corrosion within a cylinder needs to be measured to determine if the cylinder can remain in service. However, due to the restrictive openings, it is tough to insert a tool for an accurate measurement. The extent of damage is generally an estimate by the inspector using a Probe. The inspector will attach either a straight probe for estimating the damage on the bottom of the cylinder, or an angled tip to estimate damage on the side wall. The end of the probe is inserted in the damaged area, or drug across the damaged area, to try and assess the depth of damage.

    The Tube can be used to mimic the depth of damage within a cylinder. The metal inserts within the tube have pre-drilled with 4 individual depths (.01/.02/.04/.06). There is an insert on the bottom and an insert on the side of the tube. The inspector can place the probe within the DET Tube and get a feeling on how the end of probe reacts with each pre-drilled hole. Once the inspector gets an idea on the resistance felt through the probe, and estimates the same resistance of the corrosion or damage within the cylinder.
