Company's history

Dating back to the early thirties of the last century, fire extinguishers and fire-fighting equipment have been produced on our site in Apolda, a small town located in Thuringia, Germany, situated within the triangle of the surrounding and famous cities of Weimar, Jena, and Naumburg.

Already in 1957, the production of high-pressure steel cylinders was started in order to extent the product range to other fields of technical applications.

In the 1990 the company underwent a comprehensive restructuring process, accompanied by major investments in most modern manufacturing and testing equipment. Subsequently the company was certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 for the first time in 1993.

Since 2016 eurocylinder systems AG is part of the diversified industrial group Serafin based in Munich.

Today eurocylinder systems AG has an annual production capacity of more than 500,000 cylinders, manufactured on two production lines, and is among the top-5 of the European steel cylinder manufacturers.


Our qualified and experienced staff is performing rigor quality checks throughout the production process.


Our qualified and experienced professionals and engineers in production and quality management do perform all required tests and rigor quality checks throughout the production process.

The extensive list of tests encompasses among others:

  • Control and documentation of heat treatment by annealing lot
  • Brinell hardness test and automated ultrasonic testing for longitudinal and lateral defects and minimum wall thickness
  • Gas leakage test, water pressure test and volumetric control
  • Visual and dimensional inspection of internal and external surfaces at every production step
  • Final inspection and archiving of all quality assurance documents
  • In addition, destructive testing (tension, bend, and impact test) and hydraulic burst tests per annealing lot


All of our products comply with relevant current national and international standards, regulations, and guidelines applicable for their respective field of use.

For steel cylinders for the transportation of gases e.g. the regulations ADR, RID, RL 2010 / 35 / EU do apply. For stationary pressure vessels RL 2014 / 68 / EU or the AD instruction leaflet apply.

Approvals for other countries outside the European Union may are available upon request.
