The Easiest Way to Prevent Cylinder Mix-Ups.

Have you given much thought to valve shrink wrap in the past? If you’re like most people – even in the industrial gas field – the answer is probably “no.” Of course, there’s a good chance you know what this product is if you work in the industry, but it’s not the sort of thing you’d spend hours dwelling on, either.


That said, if your company has been working with the same valve wrap supplier for years, it’s high time you made a change. At Ratermann, we’ve put together a shrink wrap line created especially with industrial gas cylinders in mind. We want to make it easy for your customers to avoid confusion between empty and full cylinders. Read on to learn about the factors separating our valve wrap from the crowd!


Valve Wrap: The Basics

Valve wrap serves a simple – but essential – primary function. Customers can effortlessly identify a cylinder with shrink wrap used as a valve cover as a cylinder filled with industrial gas. They can also use removable shrink film sleeves for the purpose of insulating and protecting a cylinder’s valve seal, among other functions. Click here to shop valve shrink wrap.


In a recent video interview, Josh Weinman – vice president of Columbus, Ohio’s DeLille Oxygen – had this to say about how Ratermann’s valve wrap has impacted his business:


“DeLille started using shrink wrap a little less than ten years ago. At first, it was for quality assurance more than anything – so we could mark full and empty cylinders. We can knock on a cylinder and know if it’s empty, but customers can’t do that.”


Josh also “highly recommended” Ratermann as a supplier of valve wrap, thanks in large part to our simple order process and quick shipping.

“We put our logo and our phone number and all that on there. It’s one more DeLille logo that’s in a customer’s face, so they know who to call when that cylinder is used up,” *Josh* said.
