Frequently Asked Questions
How do I regenerate the PermaPack cylinders?
Preheat your oven to 220°C (430°F). Place the PermaPack cylenders into the oven and bake for approx. 4 - 5 hours. Allow the cylinders to cool down while the oven is switched off. We recommend regenerating the cylinders in the evening, then switching the oven off and removing the cylinders the following morning. Now cool the cylinders will be ready for their renewed application.
How often can I regenerate the PermaPack cylinders?
PermaPack cylinders can be regenerated in an oven again and again. In order to guarantee ideal conditions for long-term storage it is recommended that the PermaPack cylinders be replaced after 5-6 years of use.
Will the PermaPack cylinders rust?
No, PermaPack will not rust. PermaPack cylinders are made from high quality 316 Marine-Grade stainless steal and therefore will not rust if used and stored correctly. 316-stainless steel is a molybdenum-alloyed steel, the preferred steel for marine environments.
