Luxfer Releases Position Statement on Eddy Current Testing of AA6061 Cylinders

Luxfer has finally released its position on Eddy Current Testing of Luxfer cylinders made of 6061-T6 Aluminum Alloy. The short version is that Luxfer does not require or recommend Eddy Current Testing of cylinders made of 6061-T6. These are cylinders manufactured by Luxfer after 01 July 1988. This position reflects the official position released by Catalina Cylinders a few years ago. The full position statement and release can be found here:

Eddy Current testing of cylinders manufactured out of 6351-T6 Aluminum Alloy is still required by law as mandated in 49 CFR.
