Safe gas cylinder storage

A large industrial gas manufacturer/supplier required a safer and more efficient method
to Measure volumes of toxic, flammable gases stored in horizontal cylinders, referred to
as “Tonners”.
DENIOS designed and manufactured a fire-rated occupancy building that incorporated an
electronic load cell scale anchored into the containment sump.
The customer uses a forklift to maneuver cylinders into the building and onto the Scale to
determine total weight.
This setup also allows for loading and unloading without any company personnel entering
the building during the entire weighing process.
DENIOS installed small fire-rated custom access doors with windows for manipulating
The gas cylinder’s valves and when they were placed on the scale.
After several months of operation the customer installed a cooling system with custom
Ventilation to allow for additional cylinder processing in the hot Midwest summer months.
