In order to establish whether monitors are functioning properly, gases or gas mixtures are used. The more different components are being monitored, the more gases and gas mixtures are needed to check the equipment and make sure it is working properly.
It is easy to see that when checking dozens or sometimes hundreds of monitor points at a location, a gas mixture in a convenient and easy-to-use packaging is desirable - the more so because various types of equipment are not always stationed on the ground floor but sometimes in places which are harder to reach.
A common solution is to supply this gas in a so-called disposable packaging. However, this creates a waste product at the end of the life cycle. In contrast to what the name of implies, this type of packaging may not enter the waste flow. It must be disposed of as chemical waste, incurring substantial cost.
Linde has developed a unique and environmentally-friendly solution: the ECOCYL! The ECOCYL is a small, refillable gas cylinder with fully integrated closure, reducer valve and flow meter, all protected by a fixed cylinder cap. The result is a safe and user-friendly gas cylinder which is ready for immediate use. As a user, you only need to open the closure and choose between one of the available flow ranges.
The ECOCYL is easy to move from one monitoring point to another thanks to the hand grip integrated into the cap or the shoulder strap. Its low weight of 2.4 kg also makes it easy to move.
Thanks to the ECOCYL system developed by Linde Gas Benelux, the centre of gravity of the gas cylinder including reducer valve is in the middle of the cylinder. As a result, the ECOCYL can be easily put down without falling over. It’s good to be safe!
Changing the reducer valve when the gas cylinder is empty is also no longer necessary. The empty gas cylinder, including the integrated reducer valve and fixed cap, are accepted by Linde Gas Benelux, checked and refilled for you by fully trained professionals. Which means you also no longer face the problem of getting rid of disposable packaging.
The ECOCYL must comply with the same statutory requirements as regular gas cylinders. ECOCYL cylinders are therefore also manufactured in accordance with the European TPED directive.
