COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - Sep 22, 2016) - Worthington Industries, Inc. (NYSE: WOR) announced today an addition to its industrial gas storage portfolio. Worthington is introducing four MicroBulk cylinder sizes: 1000, 1500, 2000 and 3000 liters, available in both high pressure (HP) and very high pressure (VHP) specifications used for storage of liquid oxygen, nitrogen, argon and carbon dioxide. The MicroBulk cylinders are certified to ASME and available in most North American markets.
"Offering MicroBulk cylinders is an important expansion to our industrial gas storage portfolio," said Geoff Gilmore, president of Worthington Industries' Pressure Cylinders business. "This expands Worthington's range of products, and supports our goal to fully support every stage of industrial gas storage and transport."
When storing liquid industrial gases, choosing the appropriate storage technology helps optimize space, convenience and cost. MicroBulk cylinders provide a flexible installation, with a size that is ideal when less volume than a bulk tank but more volume than liquid or high pressure gas cylinders is needed.
Worthington MicroBulk cylinders provide a secure onsite source of cold liquid product that provides pressurized gas with gauges that monitor your liquid levels at all times. Worthington MicroBulk Cylinders may be installed and operated indoors or outdoors, and customers can choose from a variety of sizes, pressures, and configurations to meet all applications. Worthington MicroBulk cylinders are manufactured in Theodore, Ala., USA.
Packaged and bulk industrial gas customers around the world rely on Worthington Industries' broad range of products and expertise in gas and liquid storage technology, including high pressure and cryogenic storage vessels, transport trailers, brazing alloys, hand torches, and countless complementary products.
