Worthington Industries’ composite propane cylinder is fully recyclable and can be used for cooking, water heating and outdoor grilling. The cylinder was developed by Amtrol-Alfa, a company recently acquired by Worthington that specializes in low-pressure steel and composite cylinders. The cylinder, called “Fourtis,” is lightweight and durable and is wrapped in a customizable, easy-to-clean polymeric jacket with an ergonomic handle, the company reports. It is demountable, which makes reassembly easy and has lower maintenance costs than steel cylinders, Worthington says. The cylinder is impact, corrosion and permeability resistant and can be equipped with microchip technology for precise tracking, fast identification and real-time database assessment. The Fourtis can be manufactured to ISO 11119-3, EN 14427 and EN 12245 standards for Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South America.
