Overview
Mountain High makes a variety of oxygen cylinders.  The most popular series is their AL series.  The KF Series weighs about 1/2 as much as the AL series.  However, is quite a bit more expensive, requires recurrent pressure testing every 3 years, and must be replaced after 15 years.

Cylinder Lengths
The Aluminum cylinder lengths shown in the tables below include the cylinder and valve - no regulator.  The added length for a standard XCR regulator is about 1.75 inches (45 mm).
The composite cylinder lengths shown in the tables below include the cylinder only - no valve or regulator.  The added length for a standard US CGA-540 valve and XCR regulator is about 3.5 inches (89 mm).

Cylinder Valve Port Types
There are 2 types of cylinder valve port types commonly used in aircraft.  It is important to know which one is on your cylinder when ordering a regulator for it.  The regulator attaches to this port.

  • CGA-540 - US standard, Approximate outer diameter of threads: 0.902" (22.9 mm)
  • DIN-477 - European standard, Approximate outer diameter of threads: 1.04" (25.4 mm)

All cylinders provided by Mountain High use 3/4 x 16 UNF straight threads.  However, 2 different types of o-rings are used - one for aluminum cylinders and a different type for fiber wrapped cylinders.

Airline Travel with Oxygen Cylinders
Airline travel with an oxygen cylinder requires preparation. The TSA requires that the valve be removed from the cylinder so they can look inside the cylinder.  The valve should be removed before you get to the security checkpoint. Mountain High said that the valve can be removed quite easily.  The threads on the valve are straight threads (not tapered threads) - which is nice.  An o-ring is used to make the seal.  When putting the valve back onto the cylinder it is very important that a torque wrench is use.  The torque wrench should be set for 60 to 65 ft*Lbs.  Please see the TSA web site in the link below for details.

When ordering cylinder valves, it is necessary to specify the service pressure rating of the cylinder that it will be used with.  Then the correct burst plug can be supplied in the valve.

Cylinder Testing Requirements
I am often asked to clarify the life and testing requirements for oxygen cylinders.  The table below should help. 

Note: These testing and life requirements are specified by the U.S. Department of Transportation.  Oxygen cylinders are classified as "pressure vessels".  All cylinders provided by Mountain High meet all U.S. D.O.T. requirements and also meet all the requirements for Canada.

Cylinder Life and Hydro Testing Requirements
These requirements are from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
  Life Limit Hydro Testing Interval
Aluminum Cylinders unlimited 5 years
Steel Cylinders - Type 3AA unlimited 3 years
Steel Cylinders - Type 3HT 24 years 5 years
Kevlar and Carbon Wrapped Aluminum Cylinders 15 years The old rule was 3 years.  Starting in July of 2006, after the first hydro test, the interval changes to 5 years.
Silica (Glass) Wrapped Aluminum Cylinders (CFF-480) 15 years 3 years

 

Cylinder Types Overview
Series Type Photo
(click on images below to view larger versions)
Description
AL Series Aluminum The AL aluminum oxygen cylinders are featured in our XCP, XCR & EDS portable oxygen systems. These cylinders feature our low-profile CGA-540 (oxygen) valve with pressure gauge that shows the amount in the cylinder at all times with the valve open or closed. Although these aluminum cylinders are intended for portable 'carry-on' applications, they have been used in some airborne applications. See our Full Pack cylinder harness & carry-caddy for these cylinders. Also see CMK cylinder hold-down kits.
CFF Series
 
Aluminum core with
Silica (glass) Fiber Wrap
CFF cylinders have an aluminum core with silica (glass) fiber wrap and are DOT-E 7277-3000 rated. These are high-pressure oxygen cylinders for service pressures up to 3,000 PSI. They can be optionally ordered with a DIN-477 (Euro-norm) valve with gauge.
CFFC Series
 
Aluminum core with
Carbon Fiber Wrap
 
KF Series
 
Aluminum core with
Kevlar Fiber Wrap
The lightest aircraft oxygen cylinder that technology has to offer. These Kevlar fiber-wrapped cylinders have been developed specifically for aircraft use.

The KF series cylinders are the perfect solution for cylinder installations far aft in the aircraft previously not possible before. A thin-wall, seamless aluminum (6061-T6) alloy 'liner-cylinder' is reinforced by a full over-wrapping of Kevlar fibers sealed in epoxy. This yields about a 50% to 60% weight savings over conventional cylinder technology without any compromise in safety.

These cylinders are preferred by many who build the state-of-the-art composite-fiber aircraft. They are made under a DOT mfg. protocol. If used in commercial applications or in a type-certified aircraft, the DOT service life is 15 years from the first hydro-test date and hydro-tests are done every three years. The KF series cylinders are complemented by our RCV/RCR remote-controlled-regulator system and built-in EDS system. The KF series cylinders can be secured for carry-about applications with the Full-Pack and Tuff-Pack cylinder carry-caddy harness systems.


Kevlar Fiber cylinders are the lightest technology has to offer and are designed specifically and approved for aircraft applications. A simplified fabrication process is where the cylinder liner is made (steps 1,2,3 & 4) Fiber wrap (steps 5 & 6) are wrapped around the liner. Threads for the valving device is done after step 4 and before step 5. Epoxy is applied during the wrapping process.

If the cylinder is to be used in type certified aircraft, by current DOT protocol, it must be hydro tested every 3 years and taken out of service if it fails or after 15 years from the first hydro test date comes about. Even if the cylinder passes hydro test. DOT protocol does not specifically detail any requirements for these cylinders if used in experimental aircraft. As of July of 2006, any Kevlar cylinder tested after that date can be hydro tested every 5 years (instead of 3).  That is true for cylinders manufactured before that date.

Technical Notes
Weight of Oxygen: 0.083 lb/cu. ft.

Oxygen Pressure Ratings
Oxygen cylinders specifications are sometimes shown at 2 different pressures.  The 1850 rating is excellent for comparison purposes and in locations where that is the maximum fill pressure available.  The higher ratings are nice to know but are not available at all oxygen supply locations.

Lead-time
I try to stock as many parts as possible so I can ship to you immediately upon the receipt of your order.  However, MH offers an extremely broad range of products and kits so it is not possible for me to stock everything.  However, it is possible for MH to ship parts I don't have in stock directly to you very quickly.  That is good for you because you receive the products quickly.  It is good for me because it reduces the amount of inventory I need to stock and also eliminates the cost of shipping the products to me.  The items marked "In Stock" below are almost always in my stock here in Minnesota, USA.  The items marked "1 Day" (or similar) can be shipped directly from the vendor in Oregon, USA to you.

If the cylinder is to be used in type certified aircraft, by current DOT protocol, it must be hydro tested every three years and taken out of service if it fails or after 15 years from the first hydro test date comes about. Even if the cylinder passes hydro test. DOT protocol does not specifically detail any requirements for these cylinders if used in experimental aircraft.

MH-00CYL-1044-02 KF-011-DIN KF-011-DIN Oxygen Cylinder - Aluminum core with Kevlar Fiber Wrap - with DIN-477 Valve and Gauge
The lightest aircraft oxygen cylinder that technology has to offer. These Kevlar fiber-wrapped cylinders have been developed specifically for aircraft use.

The KF series cylinders are the perfect solution for cylinder installations far aft in the aircraft previously not possible before. A thin-wall, seamless aluminum (6061-T6) alloy 'liner-cylinder' is reinforced by a full over-wrapping of Kevlar fibers sealed in epoxy. This yields about a 50% to 60% weight savings over conventional cylinder technology without any compromise in safety.

These cylinders are preferred by many who build the state-of-the-art composite-fiber aircraft. They are made under a DOT mfg. protocol. If used in commercial applications or in a type-certified aircraft, the DOT service life is 15 years from the first hydro-test date and hydro-tests are done every three years. The KF series cylinders are complemented by our RCV/RCR remote-controlled-regulator system and built-in EDS system.

Cylinder Mounting Kits
CMK-Omega CMK-Omega CMK Ω ('Omega') Cylinder Mounting Kits
The CMK 'OMEGA' type bracket cylinder mounting kit is a rigid, low-profile, high-strength method of securing aluminum or composite-fiber cylinders to a flat surface. With the CMK brackets bolted in place, the cylinder is held into place by a set of stainless steel taut-bands. The taut-bands are the quick-release, ("open-loop") type in which the cylinder is easily placed and removed by loosening the grip-knobs and uncoupling the quick-release latch on the bands.

00CMK-0024-00 CMK-A CMK "A" Bracket Cylinder Mounting Kits
Made specially for fiber-wound cylinders, the CMK-A bracket cylinder mounting kit is a rigid, low profile method of securing either aluminum or fiber-wound cylinders to a flat surface inside a deep area where removal on the axis is not possible and scratching the cylinder may be a concern. A wide fabric strap is used to secure the cylinder, minimizing the possibility of damaging the cylinder. The CMK-A provides the greatest number of options for mounting these types of cylinders. The brackets can be positioned anywhere throughout the circumference of the fabric belts. The fabric belts can then be rotated so the tightening buckle is positioned almost anywhere desired for easy access. Used with many composite-fiber aircraft.

Strap Length: 35 inches (88.9 cm)
