PHMSA Advisory on Unauthorized Marking of Compressed Gas Cylinders

Posted in on Fri, Apr 5, 2013

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has issued a Safety Advisory Notice advising that it has confirmed the marking, service and/or sale of certain high pressure DOT specification cylinders marked with a requalification identification number (RIN) without performing a valid hydrostatic
requalification test.  Kraus Fire Equipment Co. marked DOT cylinders as tested without approval to requalify DOT cylinders and without calibrating its required systems. This advisory addresses cylinders serviced or purchased from Flint Welding Supply Co, Flint, MI from approximately June 2010 to December 2012 and marked with an “A978” or a partial “A978” or just the Month/Year, without a RIN mark in the middle.  For more info, contact Kraus Fire Equipment Co., G-4080 S. Dort Highway, Burton, MI Telephone 810-744-4780, Mr. Richard Battstone, Jr., Owner.  http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-03-13/html/2013-05678.htm
