Micro Bulk CO2
This is the process of delivering Co2 in one of our bulk trucks to a storage tank at a customers site. There are various sizes of bulk storage tanks available starting with 300lbs ranging up to a 6000 lbs storage tank. There are numerous uses where a Micro Bulk system would offer advantages for this type of supply mode, here are just a few: Micro Breweries, Commercial Swimming Pools for PH balance, Bars and Restaurants, Food Packaging, Greenhouses for plant growth and Metal Fabrication. These are just a few examples where customers realized the advantages of using bulk supply over the traditional cylinder supply.
Here are some advantages for considering a micro bulk system:
Safety – We install a single semi permanent storage tank that is secured. No need for multiple single cylinders that have to be rolled across slippery kitchen floors or that may become a fall hazard in production areas.
Convenience – The bulk tank can be located in a low traffic area and the supply lines can be run to the use point. No need to handle or manage cylinder inventories with a bulk tank it’s a single source that can be set up to be filled on a regular schedule. Customer’s often comment that its piece of mind to not have to rely on staff to switch empty cylinders to full cylinders, with a bulk system the supply is always there.
Cost – When using individual cylinders in most cases these tanks are sent back to the supplier with residual gas in them. This translates to returning cylinders with money in them but its widely overlooked. Its also the cost of being out of gas when staff haven’t properly managed inventory of full and empty cylinders.
