DOT 110 Cylinder
The one-ton N2O4 cylinder is constructed from 304 SS and has built-in valves and a dip tubes for loading and off-loading by pressurant gas. These cylinders are “standard issue” containers for Defense Energy Supply Center (DESC) at the KSC-CCAFS Defense Fuels Supply Point (DFSP). N2O4 low-iron MON-10 is typically delivered in this type of cylinder. This type cylinder is also used to return Solution to the manufacturer for recycling.
The DESC DFSP can deliver all N2O4 grades in a DOT110 cylinder, however, the DOT4BW’s are preferred due to their ease of operation for smaller delivery requirements (<1000 lbs).
