Practice the following guidelines before filling a CO2 cylinder.  Inspect the crown markings o Verify the cylinder is indeed for CO2 and has been hydrostatically re-tested within the last 5 years.  Inspect the cylinder for damage or excessive wear and tear o Dents gouges drag marks etc.  Inspect the cylinder for signs of exposure to excessive heat or fire. Any cylinder that shows any visible signs of being exposed to high heat or fire must not be filled and should be pulled from service immediately – subject to a further inspection. Visible signs include: o Charring blistering or discoloration of the cylinder paint or labels o Cylinder body distortion o Melted/Melting components valve hand-wheel carry handle etc. o Valve pressure relief device being activated.  Inspect the valve safety relief device o Verify it has not been actuated or tampered with. o Do not fill a cylinder that has an actuated or altered safety relief device.  Inspect the valve o Verify the valve is the correct type for the cylinder

o Valve should be seated completely tightly into the cylinder o Handwheel and outlet thread have no damage. Slightly open handwheel to check the operation and check cylinder for charge o Do not fill a cylinder that has a damaged valve The above noted items that Evergreen Midwest recommends that a person perform as an external inspection of the cylinder prior to filling can be supported by any other means of inspection that you may feel is necessary to insure a cylinder is acceptable to be filled.
