On-site medical gas bulk storage tanks and oxygen storage vessels for high-use facilities.
or more information
If you need a large volume of medical gases or are looking to replace your cylinders, we can help you design, construct, and maintain an uninterrupted supply of bulk medical gas.
Liquid nitrogen and oxygen are stored as cryogenic liquids, whereas nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide are usually managed as refrigerated liquids.
We supply many gases in cryogenic form to achieve economy of scale pricing - so more product can be transported to you and stored on-site. A bulk liquid nitrogen storage tank is a cryogenic vessel used to maintain the product in its liquid state for as long as possible.
To construct the pipeline network connecting your bulk tank with the rest of your facility, we work with the best medical gas pipeline system manufacturers in North America and ensure the equipment is sized and installed correctly.
Our bulk tank systems
Bulk liquid nitrogen
Liquid nitrogen is stored in a liquid storage tank (cryogenic vessel) and can be used in two ways:
- As a gas for pneumatic tools in operating rooms
- As a liquid for cryobiology applications
We supply and help install liquid nitrogen storage tanks at your facility, so you can trust a reliable flow of liquid nitrogen whenever you need it.
Bulk liquid oxygen
Oxygen stored in a liquid storage tank (cryogenic vessel) must be turned into gas before it can be given to patients.
A vaporizer helps transform the liquid into gas through heat exchange. A commonly used vaporizer is an ambient finned tube design, where the fins transfer heat from warm ambient air to the cryogenic liquid flowing in the tube. The heat transfer converts the liquid into a gas.
Bulk nitrous oxide
Nitrous oxide bulk systems typically include a reserve supply and dual line controls located inside the facility, as well as a control panel that regulates pressure.
Our team of experts can help you ensure that the bulk system is safe and that the incoming pressure from the bulk tank (supply source) is reduced to the customer’s houseline requirements.
