Delivery and storage of gas in cylinders and banks
Air Liquide provides a wide variety of compressed gas cylinders in many sizes, each selected to meet specific customer needs. 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 Cylinders
Air Liquide supplies low-pressure cylinders that are ideal for flammable gases such as acetylene and propane.
High-pressure cylinders are ideal to safely transport and use store compressed gases. Air Liquide offers many sizes of high-pressure gas cylinders and tube trailers made of aluminum and stainless steel.
