Gas Cylinder Disposal
Compressed gases are a unique hazard. Depending upon the particular gas within a cylinder, there is potential for flammability, combustibility, corrosivity, toxicity or air reactivity. Yet over 90% of unknown gases can be identified on your premises. Through our unique, industry leading, turn-key services, HazChem identifies, processes and disposes all of your unknown gas cylinders safely and cost effectively.
Inspection/Sampling and Identification
Unknown contents in gas cylinders present a high risk and should only be handled by experienced personnel with the proper safety training and appropriate equipment for each job. Using our effective manifold system, portable laboratory and identification equipment, we manually inspect and sample each cylinder individually not only to determine the unknown content, but also to determine the physical integrity of the cylinder for packaging, transportation or disposal. Our distinct, unknown gas identification process using FT-IR (Fourrier Transform Infrared) detection devices allows us to securely identify and process gas cylinders AT YOUR SITE, saving you time and money.
Transportation and Disposal
Managing gas cylinder disposal responsibly requires an efficient and effective network of on-site and off-site services. HazChem transportation and disposal services are a critical component in reducing your environmental liability.

The 3Rs of HazChem
Recycle: The contents of many gas cylinders can be recycled into useful products, which reduces your total annual waste disposal volumes for significant overall cost savings.
Repackage: When gas cylinders are leaking, damaged or defective, they may require re-packaging before being transported for disposal or recycling. Our HazChem professionals make sure that any compromised cylinders are transferred safely and quickly.
React: When all other removal options have been exhausted, HazChem can safely react-off materials in a closed loop system, utilizing reactors and mobile scrubber systems.
