Properties of a gascylinder
Cylinders come in a range of sizes which are normally defined as the water capacity of the package. Which size is most suitable for you will depend on a range of factors including consumption and flow rate. Each cylinder is fitted with a cylinder valve tailored to suit the gas and pressure requirements.
The outlet thread is dictated by international standards to ensure that only regulators compatible with these requirements can be fitted.
Acetylene, because of its properties, needs to be stored in a cylinder containing a ‘porous mass’ into which the gas is held in a carrier solvent.
NEMO®PLUS and bundles
Linde has also developed a range of cylinders with integrated valves and regulators with gases such as argon/carbon dioxide mixtures readily compressed at a pressure of 300 bar. This product range is called NEMO®PLUS. Contact your local country to see if they are available for you.
For applications requiring higher capacities Linde also supplies a range of ‘Bundles’ which are multiple cylinders, connected together and palletised.
