Cylinders by Air Liquide

Packaged Gases

Compressed Gases in high-pressure advanced packages.
For gas consumption that does not exceed 500m3 a month

High-pressure cylinders are ideal to safely transport, use and store most compressed gases. However, LPG and other flammable gases are supplied in low pressure cylinders and acetylene is supplied in specific cylinders to ensure safety. As our wide range of specialty and industrial gases has an equally wide range of chemical characteristics, we base our packaging offer on safety, stability and customer convenience.

Types of Packaged Gases

Cylinders

Our compressed gas cylinder sizes, materials used and valve type are determined by CGA, DOT and TC guidelines.

Cryogenic

Air Liquide supplies cryogenic tanks as a safety storage unit for liquefied gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, argon and carbon dioxide. These gases are stored at extremely low temperatures and in a liquid state.

Work Safer

Air Liquide’s exclusive SMARTOP™ valve for specialty lab gases and industrial gases saves time and gas while improving workplace safety.

With its integrated regulator and quick connect outlet, the ALTOP™ will save you time, money and gas while keeping you safe.

Your safety is of paramount importance to us.

Our compressed gas cylinder sizes, materials used and valve type are determined by CGA, DOT and TC guidelines. Air Liquide draws on more than 100 years of experience to determine which gases can be safely contained and transported in specific types of gas cylinders.

Ensuring gas stability

In addition, we ensure gas stability by matching cylinders with valve types to protect the integrity of the gas against corrosion or certain chemical reactions. When packaging reactive gases, our cylinders are treated with our exclusive inerting processes.

Customer convenience

We work hard to ensure convenience, efficiency and complete satisfaction with Air Liquide’s packaged gas products. Our extensive range of cylinder sizes and multi-cylinder packs provide cost-effective gas quantities for every application. In addition, cryogenic liquid containers for atmospheric and helium pure gases are available.
