Hi guys, getting a bit confused by my bottle label.

I always understood that Pi fibrewraps were 15 year life span with 5 year test intervals. However looking at my cylinder it looks like it's only got a 9 year life span? - which makes me wonder if it's on a different (3 year?) test interval? Obviously I need to know because if it were on a 3 year cycle then a retest is due.

Can anyone enlighten me at all?

Strange.
The new ISO spec would imply (almost) unlimited life.
I would expect a 5 year test cycle, but with a final date showing sites could / should not permit you to fill after Feb 2022.

I see that Trevor Kent of HPAC has been tagged on the Facebook post, he will be able to shed more light on it

Are there any other markings on the cylinder?

I don't know if you got an official answer from any one to your question but I just found this picture of an older gayston bottle, it's the same standard but you'll notice the dates are 15 years apart as they should be, I still think they made a cock up on your bottle.66596629_10157111315000202_7548150026216669184_o.jpg
