Nois there anywhere in the uk that will test your tank to give you all 3 stamps(pi/dot/tc)
Typically 15 year maximum life, with tests at the 5 year points for fibre wrapFrom what I remember, it's a metal stamp on the born date then 2 adhesive re test stickers then death?
It's only stamped on all metal cylinders, fibre cylinders are printed on the original cylinders markingsFrom what I remember, it's a metal stamp on the born date then 2 adhesive re test stickers then death?
The multiple stamps are international standards for the design build of the cylinder. To get approved the manufacturer has to go through the approvals process of the appropriate standards organizations. It may meet or exceed those standards but if not put to them at the time of manufacturer then it can't be added later
The hydro test is like an mot, it checks that the individual cylinder is still within its design constraints (visually check for any damage and then hydro test that it does not expand too much under extreme pressure)
Noright so at the moment if you buy a tristamed tank.
when the rehydro date is due you will lose all 3 certs and be left with just one cert as at the moment we cant send it for a test the exeeds past all 3 certs,am i right?
