Popular Industrial and Medical Gas Cylinder Terms

In many industrial professions, bottled gas is a vital component and necessity. In the medical industry, many patients would suffer without receiving life-giving oxygen. In order to have a better, more comprehensive understanding of the bulk industrial and medical gas field, it is important to understand the terminology associated with it. Below are several terms to be familiar with when researching the industrial and medical gas industry.

  • Acetylene - Acetylene is a colorless gas, having an ether-like odor, produced usually by the action of water on calcium carbide or by pyrolysis of natural gas. It is used especially in metal cutting and welding, and depending upon the size of the job, is available in large or small tanks or cylinders. Because acetylene gas is very sensitive to conditions such as excess pressure, excess temperature, static electricity, or mechanical shock, users must follow specific storage instructions.
  • Argon - Argon is a colorless, odorless, chemically inactive, gaseous element that, because of its inertness, is used for filling fluorescent and incandescent lamps and vacuum tubes. Argon is mostly used as an inert shielding gas in welding and other high temperature industrial processes. Instructions with respect to single or bulk Argon storage include, storing in an open space to prevent asphyxiation, and protective gear to prevent flesh from freezing to pipes or cylinders when Argon is in liquid form.
  • Regulator - A regulator is a valve for regulating the pressure of flowing gas or liquid from a tank, cylinder, or bottle in order to maintain a predetermined pressure.
  • Pneumatic - Containing compressed air. Many impact tools are powered by compressed air allowing for higher torque and generally more power than human strength can alone supply.

    Gas cylinders are pressurized tanks or bottles used to store gases above atmospheric pressure. The size of a cylinder differs based on the purpose for which it used. Large gas canisters are regularly used for industrial purposes. Gases such as butane, fuel oil, propane, liquefied petroleum gas and many other elements are often found on industrial sites. Fields such as manufacturing, construction and aviation commonly use gas cylinders to help power their machines and equipment. In addition, smaller bottles and canisters are regularly used by individual consumers to inflate the tires on cars, bikes and motorcycles. In the medical field, gas cylinders are an essential piece of equipment for hospitals and other care facilities. For instance, portable oxygen tanks are common types of medical gas cylinders. They are also commonly used in drug delivery devices such as asthma inhalers. Cylinders are commonly provided from a gas cylinder supply company. Many offer discounts for purchasing items such as propane bottles, gas pumps, cans and cylinders in bulk. Bulk items draw a cheaper price than buying them individually from suppliers and vendors. In addition, suppliers often provide complementary items such as pressure regulators, tank covers, and many other related products. Information on prices and availability of various gas cylinder products can often be found on a supply company’s website. In addition, sellers often provide their customers with detailed catalogs that provide facts and information about their selection of items. Whatever purpose they may serve, gas cylinders are an essential item for a wide range of businesses.
