Future of cylinders is here with GENIE®
Leading gases and engineering company BOC has today announced its GENIE® cylinder in nitrogen. Now available in 10 litre and 20 litre sizes across Australia, the GENIE® is 30 percent lighter than an equivalent steel cylinder and holds 39 percent more nitrogen.
The arrival of the GENIE® marks a new era in gas cylinder technology, with leading design that enhances portability, durability and safety for small volume nitrogen users across many industries including refrigeration and automotive.
“GENIE® in nitrogen is an ideal companion for any work project,” said Dr Chris Barnes – General Manager, Gases Product Management. “The wide base and easy-grip handles make it easy to transport and also protects the regulator. It has a stable wheel base that can be detached if needed via a patented clip-on system. ”
Designed to withstand tough all-weather environments, the GENIE® comprises of a steel lined carbon fibre wrapped pressure vessel, encased within a tough high density polyethylene jacket, eliminating rust from the cylinder base.
“The GENIE® technology will help workers be more efficient on the job and have greater visibility of usage. Less time is spent reordering and replacing cylinders as gas is filled at a pressure of 300 bar, allowing an increase in volume compared to equivalent steel cylinders.
“A digital display with built-in intelligence also provides better visibility on the amount of gas remaining in the cylinder and how long it will last based on usage. This is a big help when planning jobs.”
Since 2010, BOC has upgraded half a million cylinders in its fleet and invested over $15 million building a world leading cylinder testing facility.
