Fuel cylinders



Cameron Balloons Ltd supply a range of high strength ‘Duplex’ stainless steel cylinders and a lightweight aluminium cylinder. All cylinders are designed and manufactured to comply with aviation (EASA) and dangerous goods (ADR) legislation.

When it comes to safety, all our exclusive fuel cylinders benefit from a full collar design, giving great protection to the vital fuel fittings.

All cylinders are fitted with:

  • Contents gauge which indicates from approx. 33% of capacity until the cylinder in empty
  • Fixed liquid level gauge (bleed valve) which indicates when the cylinder is full.
  • Pressure relief valve (PRV) which protects the cylinder against excessive internal pressure.
  • Padded top ring for easier handling, along with a padded Cordura cover for passenger and cylinder protection.

The attractive cover also has an integral map pocket. Covers are available in a wide choice of colours.

All Duplex Stainless-Steel cylinders manufactured in accordance with EN14140 may use an alternative thin-foam cylinder cover.
