A hub providing relevant information and updates on industrial gas, cryogenics, and CGA regulations, as well as industry specific solutions for fill plants, beverage distribution and medical gas supplies.
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.
Valves can make or break industrial gas systems, which makes choosing a quality valve crucial for long-term success and performance. Sacrificing quality for cost will only end up costing you more in the end, when an inferior valve fails and creates potentially catastrophic system failure.
Ratermann has a long and established relationship with Taylor-Wharton, and is one of the largest North American distributors for all DOT-4L liquid cylinders. Ideal for a wide variety of liquified gases, Taylor-Wharton cylinders lead the industry in quality and safety.
From carbonating beverages to food packaging to medical treatments, pressurized gas touches nearly every part of our daily lives, whether we realize it or not. But keeping gases under pressure isn’t without highly dangerous and life-threatening risk. A lot can go sideways, and quickly, if proper safety protocols aren’t followed.
