How Much Does an Empty SodaStream CO2 Cylinder Weigh?
An empty 60L (14.5oz.) SodaStream cylinder weighs around 26.46oz. (0.75kg). To determine the exact weight of your empty SodaStream cylinder, check the neck of the cylinder and find the number following “TARE”, “T” or “TARE WEIGHT”(labeling varies on individual SodaStream cylinders). This indicates the TARE weight, which is the weight of an empty cylinder, including the valve. Notice that the weight might be indicated in kilograms (“KG”), so don’t forget to consider this in your further calculations.
The same applies to a 130L (33oz.) SodaStream cylinder, which weighs around 48.33oz. (1.37kg) when empty, with the valve on it.
The weight of an empty 60L (14.5oz.) SodaStream cylinder without the valve is around 21.52oz. (0.61kg). The exact weight is also engraved on its neck. To ensure that you found the correct weight, you can check this by adding it to the weight of the valve, which is engraved right on the valve itself (around 138 grams, i.e., 0.138kg). The resulting sum should be the same as the TARE weight.
An empty 130L (33oz.) SodaStream cylinder without the valve weighs about 43.39oz. (1.23kg). For the exact weight of your cylinder, follow the steps explained in the paragraph above.
How to Tell if the SodaStream CO2 Tank is Empty
To tell whether your SodaStream cylinder is empty, weigh the cylinder and compare the weight to its TARE weight, which is engraved on the cylinder. If the TARE weight is equivalent to or close to the cylinder’s actual weight, you can presume it is empty.
How to Tell How Much CO2 is Left in the SodaStream Tank
If you want to know how much CO2 is left in your SodaStream cylinder, weigh it and subtract the TARE weight. The calculated value tells you how many pounds of CO2 you have left in the tank.
How Much CO2 is in the SodaStream Cylinder
A 60L SodaStream cylinder can store around 14.5oz. of CO2 (425g). The exact weight of CO2 is written on the cylinder’s label. You can also find the cylinder’s capacity engraved on the neck of the cylinder next to the TARE weight. This capacity is slightly higher, almost 1lb (0.453kg).
When it comes to a 130L cylinder, according to its label, it can hold up to 33oz. of CO2 (in grams, it varies from 885g to 935g of CO2).
How Much Does a Full SodaStream Cylinder Weight?
A full 60L (14.5oz.) SodaStream cylinder weighs around 41.45oz. (1.175kg). The exact weight of your full SodaStream cylinder is written on the cylinder as two values: the TARE weight (engraved on the neck, usually in kilograms) and the capacity of the cylinder specified by SodaStream on the label (in oz. or grams). When you add these two together, you’ll have the weight of your full SodaStream cylinder.
The weight of a full 130L (33oz.) SodaStream cylinder is about 79.54oz. (2.255kg). You can check the exact weight of your cylinder the same way as described in the previous paragraph.
Are There Different Sizes of SodaStream Cylinders?
There are two different sizes of SodaStream cylinders: 60L and 130L (14.5oz. and 33oz.). However, according to the manufacturer, the 130L (33oz.) cylinders have been discontinued (source).
The 60L cylinder (14.5oz.) is now available in two versions. The first has a blue label and a standard screw-in system. The second one has a pink design and comes with a new Quick Connect system, which makes replacing the SodaStream CO2 cylinder even quicker and easier. The Quick Connect cylinder is compatible with the TERRA and ART sparkling water makers (as of May 2022). The compatibility is easy to spot since the SodaStream machine must have a pink handle system.
Note: If you have the older cylinder that works with the standard screw-in system and wish to switch to the Quick Connect system, simply exchange your cylinder for the new pink version in the same way you were used to exchanging your existing cylinder (source).
How Many Bottles Can You Carbonate from a SodaStream Cylinder?
A 60L SodaStream CO2 cylinder will make up to 60 1L bottles of carbonated water. A 130L cylinder will last for up to 130 1L bottles. The exact amount depends on how much fizz you prefer.
How Long Does a SodaStream Cylinder Last?
A 60L SodaStream cylinder lasts around 2 – 8 weeks, depending on how much fizz you consume. We like our drinks extra fizzy; therefore, we use one cylinder for 14 days before needing to refill.
