Calibration Cylinder Disposal

General Gas Education

The calibration gas cylinders supplied by Industrial Scientific Corporation are disposable. These cylinders are DOT – 39 or 2Q rated. This is the same classification used for home aerosol cans. This means that disposal may be performed by relieving the cylinder of any pressure and placing it in your waste disposal container. Check local regulations for compliance.

Some companies are required to dispose of these calibration cylinders as hazardous waste, either by company policies or by state regulations. If your company falls into this category, simply return the empty cylinders to Industrial Scientific.
