Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most pervasive on-the-job injuries across the U.S., and the compressed gas industry is no exception.

Liquid cylinder labels may be a mandatory requirement, but they’re also an opportunity to keep your company branding and information where it’s most important – right in front of your customer.
Empty cylinders are often stowed away outdoors, where a variety of factors like temperature and humidity fluctuations can cause oxidation and eventual corrosion of the cylinder body. Any corrosion can decrease cylinder durability by risking contamination from external particles, which create further damage. (See our quick refresher on cylinder storage best practices here.)
Just like any component of a liquid gas system, cylinders also need routine inspection and general maintenance to prevent small problems from growing into catastrophic failures. The tips below serve as a general guideline for most cylinder types, and are easy to incorporate into a regular inspection schedule and employee training.
Sometimes, it’s the small things that make all the difference – like liquid cylinder labels. When time is of the essence, you need clear, concise information to prevent confusion and possible catastrophe. You also want your company information easy to find when customers need refills or have a service question. With custom liquid cylinder labels, Ratermann has you covered.
