IIRC the Chrome molly (sp?) ones do not require hydro, some one please clarify on this.... also I believed I may have one in the extra box.

This is from IDKFA:

The above notes for Aluminum tank applies to Steel tanks.

Cromoly

This term is sort for a material known as chromium-molybdenum steel, which is a low alloy steel. This means that it is more durable and stronger than conventional steel used in other tanks. These types of tanks are not as common as the other types. The regulation of these types of tanks is as follows:

All Chromoly CO2 tanks must be hydrotested every 5 years, with unlimited lifespan.THERE IS A BELIEF THAT THESE TANKS ARE EXEMPT AND ONLY REQUIRE A VISUAL INSPECTION PRIOR TO FILLING, BUT THIS IS FALSE.

The above notes for Aluminum tank applies to Cromoly tanks.

2 and 2 Rule

The "two and two rule" states that any CO2 tank that is less than 2 feet in length and 2 inches in diameter is exempt from hydro testing. This rule has been accepted by the US Department of Transport (DOT), but NOT Transport Canada (TC) as of yet. Thus, THIS RULE DOES NOT APPLY IN CANADA. In the event that this rule is accepted, these tanks should still be visually inspected to ensure there is no damage. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure that the tank is not damaged.

Mar,

Thanks for the clarification about the cromoly tanks.

To the OP I will look into the "black box" and will let you know if I do still have one.

I have one in really nice condition and interestingly enough on the bottom of the label it states - "NEVER NEEDS RETESTING DOT 13336". Let me know if you are interested.

Is it a FUEL tank? I have a couple of skinny 9oz tanks that say the same thing.
