Industrial Gas Cylinder Types
The Most Common Way of Transporting Compressed Gases
Most materials that are gaseous at ambient temperature and pressure are supplied as compressed gas. A gas compressor is used to compress the gas into storage pressure vessels (such as gas canisters, gas cylinders or tube trailers) through piping systems. Gas cylinders are by far the most common gas storage. At AHG we use cylinders to transport small industrial, medical, and specialty gases throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
At AHG, our standard products are typically filled in cylinders. Such as:
We also have a specialty gas center that fills cylinders with mixtures that can be comprised of over 25 components.
In simple terms, yes. Not all industrial gases are filled and supplied in their gaseous phase. There are a few that can be liquified and filled in special cylinders at ambient temperature, they would only require pressure. Some of these gases are:
These cylinders contain what is called a dip tube that runs down the center of the cylinder (from the valve down) and draws liquid from the bottom of the cylinder to the valve. Some cylinders are also fitted with a dual port, which can be used to allow the product in the cylinder to be withdrawn in either liquid form or in gaseous form. These cylinders contain small amounts of liquid, and for larger requirements, there are special containers knows as Dewars that are used.
There are multiple types of cylinders that are manufactured all over the world, the most common of which are:
Compressed gas cylinders come in different shapes and designs, however, they are generally classified according to the pressure they can contain. There are three main types:
There are multiple hazards associated with compressed gases. Besides the chemical characteristics of these gases, the cylinders on their own can be hazardous due to their physical size and weight. Direct users must be aware that gases and their cylinders can be or can cause:
The risks are not limited to this list, there are many more, please research all risks before using.
