I recently found that I have an older but unused 30 LB DOT 4BA350 recovery cylinder that I would like to use for R22. I noticed that the retest date on the cylinder says 2006.
I'm aware of the DOT/EPA cylinder regulations, but I'm also wondering how likely it is that the reclaimer won't accept this tank for exchange when full.

Anyone ever had to deal with this situation before?
If it’s that big of an issue, I will just scrap it since I can't imagine how it would be cost effective for me to deal with having it retested.

just turn it back in to the supply house, the reclamation facility that picks it will hydrostatically test it. dont dump it and buy another one. just swap it out for a new one

Thanks nicktech.
I never even thought of just exchanging the empty cylinder for another one, since I bought it outright years ago, but it seems like this should be no problem.

Goddamit, I'm constipated and anit' had none for a month. My back is messed up to the point I need a helper and a bottle of Vicodin to finish an install; my daughter has been dating this guy for ten years with no talk of gittin hitched. I'm paying my laid off son's mortgage and his divorece expenses.

What's not to be pissed? That avatar is really me after a customer got on my bad side:furious::laughing:

Dude it is so slow I am sitting around with my thumb up my ass. Not hot enough for anything to break down.

Crummy ass weather.
Tell me about it..... I moved my condensing to the side of my house last week(to get closer to the meter,going to do the interuptible service). Got all the piping done,all the low voltage. Elec Co. said that they can come out next week to hook it up. Haven't run my air in a week. And honestly really don't miss it
