UN Pressure Receptacle

Recognized worldwide, the harmonized regulatory name for gas cylinders.

What is the UN Pressure Receptacle?

A UN Pressure Receptacle can come in many sizes and can store different types of gas content within. The term UN Pressure Receptacle is important to know because Title 49 of the CFR uses this term to describe compressed gas cylinders often. 

These receptacles are built to withstand the internal pressure of the contained substance and ensure safe transportation both within the domestic truckload industry and across international borders.
