The Carbotainer cylinder is unique in the gas distribution business. Not only do we sell gas, but we also sell innovation and high technology. Now we have gone further: We have develope our Smart Carbon Cylinders for a working pressure of 300 bar.
Since gas distribution commenced, with liquefied air gases, there have been very few significant changes in the way in which the product is presented to clients. The cylinder manufactured by Carbotainer entails a revolution in the sector and the democratisation of high technology.
This is because the investment cost now makes mass distribution possible to end clients purchasing carbon fibre cylinders, regardless of their sector, industrial, food or pharmaceutical.
This lightweight smart cylinder is available in three standard sizes, with 13, 18 and 45 litre capacities.
It is wholly designed and manufactured by Carbotainer in Spain and provides an innovative and absolutely revolutionary solution for the high pressure gas cylinders market.
The use of late generation carbon fibre has allowed us to optimize the mechanical properties of the wrapping and be able to design a 300 bar WP cylinder with the same size. Our knowhow, knowledge and experience have led to this design.
It can be packaged in a completely secure manner on standard pallets. This eliminates the need to use steel cages, which considerably simplifies transport and, indeed, represents a revolution in current distribution models.
It includes an RFID chip that lets purchase orders be generated totally automatically, as well as real-time traceability controls and access to all information on the cylinder at any time, from the start of the manufacturing process through its final application.
The next generation lightweight materials employed to produce it, such as high-performance carbon fibre and thermoplastic polymers with UV protection, ensure that its weight barely exceeds one-third the weight of conventional steel cylinders, although our cylinder maintains its great mechanical and chemical resistance. It also has an aluminium alloy liner subjected to our exclusive in-house thermal treatment, which gives it high elasticity and resistance to fatigue cycles, despite its thinness, which gives the cylinder, as well as full aptitude for food, medicinal and pharmaceutical uses.
The cylinders produced by Carbotainer comply with the most demanding quality and security standards. They also hold product certification from AENOR under European Standard EN12245, Directive 2035/10/EU (TPED) and International Standard ISO 11119-2.
This innovative cylinder was designed especially for containing the most common industrial gases, both in mix and in their pure state. But it reaches its epitome when used for the lightest molecules, H2 and He, where 95 % of the transported weight belongs to the cylinder or tank. Our 45L carbon fibre cylinders, once filled with H2, weight 1/3 of the weight of a standard steel cylinder, making transportation cheaper and more efficient.
