Leading supplier of Diving and Industrial Gases, Gas Storage Equipment, Portable Gas Filling Plants and LNG-CNG Equipment to the oil and gas industry.
Cylinder filling systems are extensively used for industrial purposes to serve clients with the growing need and demand for various types of gases. It also facilitates safe storage and transportation of gas cylinders.
The petrochemical, commercial diving, oil, and gas industries require different types of industrial gases to support their diverse operations. To offer a viable solution and advantages to smoothen the hassles of transporting and storing gases, a gas cylinder filling system can help them obtain the highest levels of efficiency to complement the industrial requirements in the best way possible. Quality and safety are also essential while offering solutions related to cylinder filling systems. This blog article is aimed at providing a definitive guide to help understand these cylinder filling systems.
Why are Cylinder Filling Systems Diversely Needed in Industry?
The gas filling activity requires standard precision and expertise to serve the reliable requirements of several industries such as marine, commercial diving, oil, gas, petrochemical, etc. which use various types of gases for their operations. These gases can be Helium, Heliox, Nitrox, Nitrogen, Oxygen, and other specialty gases. They also use a mixture of gases in the control centre to offer constant support to underwater diving operations. Apart from this, the medical sector also has a growing demand for gas filling solutions to support medical oxygen requirements. The cylinder filling systems are also capable of serving clients with their requirements to help them store and transport gases.
On-Site Gas Filling Systems: Offering Portability Advantage
The gas filling systems are facilitated through dedicated equipment to maintain quality and control while performing activities related to gas filling. The on-site gas filling plants can offer reliability, flexibility and portability in terms of serving the clients with the right gas filling and storing solutions. It also helps in deploying correct machinery and storage tanks without any limitations on geological dependency. This is the best advantage an on-site gas filling unit offers over any fixed dedicated unit which may cost more in terms of money and time.
The cylinder filling systems are designed with the highest levels of safety and security with modern technology and pressure safety mechanism. The systems are 100% leak tested with the pressuring capability to handle filling systems in a secured manner without the scope of any hazards. The filling plant also follows international safety standards to maintain on-site operations and equipment safely. It comes with auto shut off and emergency control systems to ensure the utmost safety.
Types of Cylinder Filling Systems
There are various types of cylinder filling mechanisms which are used in the industry to offer ease of mixing and filling gases as per the industrial requirement.
1. Mix Panel Filling Systems
The mixed panel filling systems are line controlled systems to fill different types of gases and their combinations with the use of manual controls that can be adjusted through a centralised panel for keeping a track on pressure, filling, etc. It also controls valves and safety gauges through the centralised system with a digital meter. These can be manually controlled to offer exact precision and the desired mix.
2. Pure Gas Control Systems
These systems are used to fill pure gases without any scope of contamination and loss of quality. It offers a control system with gauges, valves, pressure systems, control panels, etc. It also offers support for temperature monitoring to track the filling thoroughly without any risks. The system also features consistent quality metering support equipment to ensure the purity of gases.
3. Automated Gas Filling Systems
This is a type of system that completely works without the limitations of human intervention. It offers various control systems and preset operations to fill the gas cylinder as per the desired combination and mix. It also has smart valves and automatic pressure equipment enabled with sensors to track the changes.
Equipment Used in Gas Filling System
There are various types of equipment that complement the working of the gas filling system to tackle the operations as per requirements of the desired gas mix. It includes compressor, pumps, vaporisers, filling manifolds, vessels, etc. It also has the standard gas storage equipment for storing and transporting gases safely without any complications and hazards.
Quality & Purity Check
The Plant has dedicated instrumentation to analyse purity and trace impurities in various type of mixture as well pure gas in accordance with international standard specifications. There is process flow of gas filling to ensure desired quality and timely delivery to the customer.
