Provides a convenient and safe method for shipping, storing, and dispensing research quantities of air-sensitive liquids or liquefied gases whose reactive nature or pressure precludes use of glass bottles. Because Sure/Pac cylinders are made of steel they are virtually unbreakable, and their wider base makes them more resistant to tipping over than a glass bottle. When fitted with the Sure/Seal ball valve allows a positive, leak-resistant closure for air sensitive liquids, which may be additionally secured by the use of a brass cylinder plug. The ball valve is wide enough to permit a solution to be withdrawn as needed with a conventional 9 in. disposable Pastuer pipette which will reach the bottom of the 275 mL Sure/Pac cylinder. When fitted with gas needle valve may be used to store and dispense low boiling point liquids and liquefied gases as low pressure gas1. Cylinders are made of low carbon steel and have copper brazed seams. Meets DOT specification 4B-350 (Z420646 only) and 4B-240, rated 240 psi, and have 1/4 in. NPTF inlet.1.
