Gasco expands Ecosmart line with 44-liter refillable cylinder
February 11, 2011
Gasco Affiliates, LLC has announced the expansion of its EcoSmart line of environmentally friendly precision gas products with the launch of the EcoSmart 44, a standard 34-liter cylinder containing 44 liters of precision calibration gas. The new 44 features 29 percent more gas than the traditional 34-liter unit, reducing the cost per liter while also extending the life cycle of a standard 34-liter cylinder. EcoSmart 44 holds both pure gases and gas mixtures and is approved for safe transport by the Department of Transportation.
To produce EcoSmart 44, Gasco uses an exclusively designed, reinforced 34-liter aluminum alloy cylinder and applies its proprietary manufacturing process to safely and effectively increase the gas pressure. This process enables the standard 34-liter cylinder to hold 10 additional liters of calibration gas. But unlike its standard 44-liter cylinder, EcoSmart is refillable, creating both financial and environmental benefits.
Thomas Hanway, president of Gasco, says that the goal of extending its EcoSmart line is to continue providing the industry with innovative, high quality alternatives to traditional cylinder gas products. “EcoSmart 44 refillable cylinders will enable distributors and end users to not only secure precision gases at lower costs, but to also eliminate disposal fees and regulatory paperwork while supporting sustainability goals.”
