* The second value is for DOT 4BA or 4BW cylinders and values rounded up to the nearest 5 PSI increment.
The maximum gross weight for each of the cylinders above is computed as follows:
Max Gross WT = Cylinder Tare WT + Max Refrigerant Net WT
Where the Cylinder Tare WT is the empty weight of the cylinder as received and the Max Refrigerant Net WT is computed as follows:
Max Refrigerant Net WT = WC x SG x 0.8
Where WC is the water capacity of the cylinder in lb, SG is the specific gravity of the refrigerant at 77 °F and 0.8 is the safety factor. Table 4 below lists the refrigerant's Specific Gravity.
