The gas cylinders are available in sizes of 10, 20, 30 to 50kg of CO2 Content.
Each bottle size is available with or without a dip tube(syphon tube) valve.
Only in the 10 KG (20-22 lbs), there are also two different designs of the body of the bottle. One as “short compact design” with handle and the other, a “long and narrow head”.
The 10 KG (20-22 lbs) bottles are available with the following Versions:
- high version (long) “without a dip tube valve”
- high version (long) “with a dip tube valve”
- short version (compact with handle) “without a dip tube valve” (optimal)
- short version (compact with handle) “with a dip tube valve” (optimal)
The 10KG (20-22 lbs) bottle long version will soon be expelled from the bottle exchange system. Therefore, always select the short version of the 10KG (20-22 lbs) bottles. These bottles will be accepted in the future everywhere.
For physical reasons, the filling of the cylinder with small gas cylinders (eg. 2 KG [4-5 lbs] content) is not possible.
You need at least a gas cylinder with 6KG [14-15 lbs] CO2 content.
Optimal is a gas cylinder with 10KG [20-22 lbs] CO2 content. (most economical)
In bottle sizes from 20KG capacity, the gas cylinder should be used in a dip tube (syphon tube) design due to size and weight. (Or alternatively retrofitted to existing bottle from your gas trader with a dip tube valve).
