    Hi.

    I intend to set up a tank and would like to find out about aluminium cylinder.
    I don't drive and I would need to carry the cylinder around for refilling. Weight of the cylinder is therefore an important consideration.
    1. How heavy is a 3L steel cylinder?
    2. Is aluminium cylinder strong enough to be top up to the same capacity/pressure as steel cylinder?

    Thank you.

    An aluminium 3L co2 tank is about 2.3kg. There is no difference between aluminium and steel cylinders besides the weight. Aluminium being far lighter.



    A steel 3L co2 tank will be around 4 to 5 kg.
