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.
When it comes to hydrogen systems, high-quality stainless steel is the rule, not the exception. Resistant to rust, discoloration and warping, stainless steel performs exceptionally well under harsh conditions. Not only relied upon for hydrogen systems, stainless steel components are also critically important in high-purity applications like cannabis extraction and oxygen service, where high quality is a necessity, not an option.

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.
As hydrogen continues to increase in popularity, a particular focus is finding valves and components that are tough enough to stand up to hydrogen. By affecting the electrochemical kinetics of certain metals, hydrogen can cause pitting and acceleration of the rate of inter-granular corrosion of high-strength steels, titanium alloys and aluminum alloys, which are the most vulnerable metals. Additionally, the interaction of hydrogen and stress can result in escalated stress-corrosion cracking susceptibility of steel, particularly in welded joints.
