    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

    Negative. Not ALL of them do- I’m sitting here staring at one- that’s the reason I entered this thread. Especially the newer cans. I ordered one from amazon also with NO Tate weight anywhere to be found 👍

    Hey guys I’m sorry, I haven’t had an opportunity to use the site. A co-worker was using my phone to research 410a charging temps and made a comment. That’ll be the last time he used my phone. I just joined the group and wouldn’t think of calling names. My sincere apologies-TJ

    Nobody uses my phone except me.
    And yes a R410a cylinder weights more because of it's pressure.
