Certification of UF6 Cylinder Volume

  • The cylinder manufacturer has to fill the newly fabricated cylinders with 60°F water, weigh it, and stamp the water weight on the cylinder name plate.

    This water weight, when divided by 62.37 (the weight of one foot of water at 60°F) expresses the cylinder volume in cubic feet.

    The cylinder volume so derived must be greater than the minimum specified in the ANSI N14.1 Standard.
The volume of each newly fabricated cylinder is determined in order to ensure that it meets the minimum volume requirements specified in ANSI N14.1.
