pressure inside the CO2 cylinder pressure inside the CO2 cylinder sal10 (Mechanical) (OP) 5 Apr 17 10:59 Friends, What would be the pressure inside the cylinder if it is filled with 500 gram of liquefied CO2. The capacity of cylinder is 1 liter. Thanks RE: pressure inside the CO2 cylinder sal10 (Mechanical) (OP) 5 Apr 17 11:41 The temperature is at 25 degree Celsius RE: pressure inside the CO2 cylinder Ehendrix (Mechanical) 10 Apr 17 16:04 I believe in CO2 tanks the pressure is normally 2000psi, at least the ones we use are. Eric Hendrix, SET NICET Certified Design Manager RE: pressure inside the CO2 cylinder DM2 (Mechanical) 29 Apr 17 20:58 The pressure in a spun steel cylinder, filled with CO2 will be affected by ambient temperature, but it won't be more than 800psi.

RE: pressure inside the CO2 cylinder UFT12 (Mechanical) 11 Jun 17 11:53 Rather late reply but it wont hurt anybody. At least from a theoretical point of view, the relation of pressure and density of CO2 at 25C (77F) is shown below. or It turns out as shown above that with a 500gr/m3 density (31.21 lb/ft3), CO2 is on a saturated state between liquid and vapor at 64.45 bar (935 psi). RE: pressure inside the CO2 cylinder UFT12 (Mechanical) 20 Jun 17 07:32 Sorry, that is 500 kg/m3, not gr/m3. RE: pressure inside the CO2 cylinder LittleInch (Petroleum) 23 Jun 17 09:47 CO2 is weird stuff. Below the magic critical point of 31.1C, the pressure temperature line should follow the critical path line. As the temperature changes, the pressure changes along that line when you have liquid and gas. So as you release gas the pressure and temperature falls until heat from outside heats up the liquid to then equalize the pressure. So quantity is irrelevant so long as there is some liquid in a sealed container. So for 25C the pressure is around 65 bar. Beyond 31.1C it all gets a bit weird. (super critical) so can get higher pressures. Remember - More details = better answers Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.
