SCBA Bottles

I am looking for Non-destructive inspection procedures for inspecting SCBA bottles Aluminum-lined composite (hoop-wrapped) cylinders DOT-E 7235, 8023, and 8115. This is in regards to a bulletin from The Dept of health and human services 07 Dec 99, ref NIOSH Respirator user notice. Stating that there might be a problem with these bottles due to Sustain load cracking in the thread and neck area.

Re: SCBA Bottles
What is the material in the region of this cracking?

If as I guess this is Aluminium then we (Hocking NDT) have experience in providing equipment to inspect the thread and neck region of Al. air cylinders.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
