Supplying High Quality Composite LPG Cylinders

Aburi Composite LPG Cylinders are systematically tested by international institutions and are certificated with International standards and regulations, including ISO 11119-3, ADR/RID 2015.

About our cylinders

Aburi supplies the most comprehensive range of composite LPG cylinders in the world. With our extensive market coverage, we provide LPG distributors with a single point-of-contact for all composite cylinder requirements – regardless of size, quantity, colour, branding, design, or even the worldwide location for delivery.

Modern (“Type IV”) composite cylinders utilize state-of-the-art technology and equipment to produce precision vessels, with the unique properties of being lightweight with superior strength. Equally important, they are both non-explosive and non-corrosive, making them significantly safer than steel alternatives. A unique design feature is their translucent side panels, which allow visibility to the remaining gas level inside. Finally, with the outer casing made from high density polyethylene (HDPE), they are easier to handle and more resistant to impact damage during transportation – which can significantly reduce maintenance and replacement costs.

Every aspect of composite LPG cylinders represents the superior solution for the delivery of domestic LPG. For more information about our composite LPG cylinder procurement programs, please read below and contact us directly.

We would like to express our gratitude on behalf of everyone at Murhi International for the outstanding contributions made by Aburi in their support and thorougher knowledge displayed towards our supply and development strategy of composite LPG cylinder penetration into the Nigerian market.
