Empty cylinders are often stowed away outdoors, where a variety of factors like temperature and humidity fluctuations can cause oxidation and eventual corrosion of the cylinder body. Any corrosion can decrease cylinder durability by risking contamination from external particles, which create further damage. (See our quick refresher on cylinder storage best practices here.)
Valves can make or break industrial gas systems, which makes choosing a quality valve crucial for long-term success and performance. Sacrificing quality for cost will only end up costing you more in the end, when an inferior valve fails and creates potentially catastrophic system failure.
