    TAR weight of 410A cylinder

    Can someone tell me what is the TARE weight (empty weight) of a 25 lb tank of 410a? That is an empty tank of 410a with no freon in it?
    thanks in advance.

    No.

    You can, however.

    The Tare Weight (TW) is stamped into the cylinder somewhere.

    Each cylinder is slightly different.

    New virgin refrigerant cylinders (25/30lbs) only have a net weight labeled on them - in the case of your 410a cylinder, it's 25lbs.

    A full 410a (25lb cylinder) weighs about - 34lbs 2 oz (gross weight)
    subtracting the weight of the refrigerent - 25 lbs 0 oz (net weight)
    so the approx. empty container weight - 9 lbs 2 oz (tare weight)

    Cylinders with the bail style handle weigh different than the stamped type handles. Recovery cylinders have tare weight stamped. And if your cylinder has (tar) on it say from some roofer who knows. Just joking Too Tall
