Water capacity Working Pressure(Mpa) Test Pressure(Mpa) Leakage Test Pressure(Mpa) Maximum Filling Quantity(kg) Diameter(mm) Length (mm)
40l 2.1 4.5 2.1 50kg 250-350 665-1080
50l 201 4.5 2.1 62.5kg 250-350 665-1080
58l 2.1 4.5 2.1 72.5kg 250-350 665-1080
100l 2.1 4.5 2.1 125kg 350-400 1080-1300
128l 2.1 4.5 2.1 160kg 350-400 1350-1455
130l 2.1 4.5 2.1 162.5 350-400 1350-1455
400l 2.1 4.5 2.1 500kg 600 1780
800l 2.1 4.5 2.1 1000kg 800 2000
840l 2.1 4.5 2.1 1000kg 800 2080

2.How to calculate the water capacity and filling capacity of liquid chlorine cylinders ?

How do you calculate the filling quantity from the volume of a chlorine gas cylinder? Correctly determining the model to purchase

According to standard GB5100/EN. filling ratio is 1.25kg/l. water capactiy ×1.25lg/l=filling quantity kg.

for examples 800l chorine cylinder, filling quantity=800 × 1.25=1000kg

then we will know 900kg chlorine cylinder, the water capacity is 720l chlorine gas cylinder.
