SPECIALIZING IN HIGH-PRESSURE LP GAS
CYLINDER INSPECTION & REFINISHING
Under Japanese law, high-pressure gas cylinders must
undergo periodic safety inspections according to the age,
type, and size of the cylinder, as well as type of gas being
stored. All companies that use high-pressure gas cylinders,
tank trucks, or LPG vehicles are required to undergo age
management and maintenance inspections for each
Inspection period for general household LP gas cylinders:
Cylinders less than
20 years old
Cylinders more than
20 years old
At Kyushu Highpressure, we maintain data for each container we inspect, and use automated systems to
