    Green cylinder

    Hi, does any pro here know the accurate weight of an EMPTY 30-lb R22 green cylinder? Need to figure out how much R22 is left in it. Thanks!

    Find a completely empty R22 cylinder and weigh it. Then you'll know with certainty.
    • Electricity makes refrigeration happen.
    • Refrigeration makes the HVAC psychrometric process happen.
    • HVAC pyschrometrics is what makes indoor human comfort happen...IF the ducts AND the building envelope cooperate.


    A building is NOT beautiful unless it is also comfortable.

    I know that, the problem is no empty ones are available.

    How much does the one you now have weigh?

    weigh a full cylinder of the exact same brand and then deduct 30lbs, that will give you the weight of an empty cylinder.

    I know that too, the problem is that NO full cylinder of that brand is available either. I only need the estimate weight of the remaining R22, most green cylinders are of similar weight. thanks

    Roughly 6lbs. I think my last one weighed 6 3.
