Pico-cylinder – Breakaway Septum

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Pico-Cylinders with Breakaway Septums are the easiest to open on the planet. Our patented septum design is able to be opened consistently, even for life-saving applications where 99.999% reliability is needed.
Leak-Free
Picocyl has developed a hermetically sealed cylinder and a multi-stage set of leak checks to ensure that every Pico-cylinder that leave our manufacturing facility does not leak.
Laser Marking
Always looking to push the boundaries further, we developed a laser marking system that allows you to verify the mass of the cylinder for the life of the product, giving you the ultimate confidence.
