MSA has issued a User Safety Notice to inform you of action required for a single production lot of Four Gas Calibration Cylinders (58L). The manufacturer of the cylinders has informed MSA that the torque used to secure the valve to MSA Four Gas Calibration Cylinders in lot 239511 may have been below specification for some cylinders in the lot.

When disconnecting the calibration cylinder from an accessory, such as the Galaxy® GX2 Automated Test System (GX2), there is potential that the cylinder will unthread from the valve. If this happens, the pressure in the cylinder can cause the cylinder to become a projectile.

MSA has not received any reports of injuries associated with this condition. However, they are requesting that you perform the actions outlined in their notice.

MSA is advising all customers to remove MSA Four Gas Calibration Cylinders (58L) marked with lot 239511 and cylinder part number 10045035 from service.
