Gas Recycling Program

Once the calibration gas cylinders are relieved of pressure they are NOT considered hazardous material or waste. Nearly all of our mixtures contain only a very small amount of a hazardous chemical(s) as a minor component in the gas mixture requested. The fact that it is such a small amount (usually in the ppm range) always precludes the gas mixture from ever being classified as hazardous.

Our calibration gas cylinder recycling program is an environmentally-friendly way to reduce waste caused by empty cylinders. We offer a free, easy way to return used cylinders for future use.

Calibration Gas Cylinder Recycling Program

ProDetec recognises that there is a need for an earth conscious replacement of disposable calibration gas cylinders. We recognise a green initiative for a cleaner environment is required, and our calibration gas cylinder recycling program has solved the issue of what to do with empty cylinders. There is now a true pathway to return cylinders that offers an end of life recycling program.

  • All recyclable cylinders are identified by a blue neck
  • All cylinders will come with an M/T Plug – This is the green tool that makes returning the cylinders simple and safe.
  • Do not discard the M/T Plug. Keep it in a safe place to use when returning your gas cylinder.
  • Free cylinder return to ProDetec
