Disposable Cylinders

Disposable gas cylinders provide a safe and cost-effective solution for storing and transporting gases.

What Are Disposable Cylinders for Gas Applications?

Disposable cylinders, also known as single-use gas canisters or cartridges, are small, portable containers designed to hold compressed gases for various purposes. They are commonly used for industrial and medical applications. Our cylinders at CK are made of steel or aluminum and are filled with gases such as propane, butane, or helium. We design them to be lightweight, easy to use, and disposable once they are empty. This makes them a convenient option for applications or operations that need a small amount of gas for a short time and do not want the hassle of refilling larger cylinders.
