In this webinar we discuss a little bit about laws, standards, and codes. This is a particularly valuable topic because many people within the industry are familiar with procedures and safety practices, but do not know where to reference them if they are seeking more information. The compressed gas industry is ever changing, as are the regulations within it... Knowing where to find the most up to date and relevant information is crucial to running a safe operation. The goal of this weeks webinar is to provide a brief overview of some of the most common and important references. This will be presented from an educational point of view. An open live Q&A session, with a panel of Gas Master experts, will be featured after the training so your questions and comments can be addressed. Webinar is on July 7th at 10:00am CST.

In this week's training webinar, Don Renner will discuss how to calculate and measure productivity for cylinder filling operations. We will first show how to calculate the time it takes to fill a manifold of cylinders, then how to calculate the total fill cycle (vent, vacuum, and fill). We can then use this information to calculate the number of man hours it will take to fill cylinders on a daily basis based on the plant volumes. This will then help us on how to schedule manpower and measure productivity.This will be presented from an educational point of view. An open live Q&A session, with a panel of Gas Master experts, will be featured after the training so your questions and comments can be addressed. Webinar is on July 21st at 10:00am CST.

We will discuss the different types of fill manifold systems and how that affects the cylinder flow and productivity. This includes conventional fill racks, rolling fill racks, and pallet filling. We will look at examples of upgrades to fill plants and the results to productivity. We will also discuss key issues regarding cylinder flow and how automation and palletization has changed cylinder operations.This will be presented from an educational point of view. An open live Q&A session, with a panel of Gas Master experts, will be featured after the training so your questions and comments can be addressed. Webinar is on August 4th at 10:00am CST.

Most of what we do in our industry is hidden from sight behind the walls of a steel cylinder. If we could see what was going on inside, it would help understand why we go through the processes that we do. In this week's Weldcoa Wednesday webinar, Kevin Klotz is going to be discussing and demonstrating some testing and experiments Weldcoa has been performing in our lab to help understand some of the principles of compressed gas filling. This will be presented from an educational point of view. An open live Q&A session, with a panel of Gas Master experts, will be featured after the training so your questions and comments can be addressed. Webinar is on August 18th at 10:00am CST. REGISTRATION WILL BE COMING SHORTLY
In this webinar we discuss the various styles of fill manifolds and why they are designed the way that they are. A lot depends on the number and style of cylinders your facility will be filling as well as what type of gas. Some manifolds are better suited to mixed gas where others work better for straight gas. We are going to break down some of the common and less common manifold styles and explain the idea of why they are used in their particular service. This is presented from an educational point of view.
In this webinar, we will be discussing some of the key points to safely and successfully filling oxygen into aluminum and steel cylinders as well as a little bit about the history of aluminum cylinders getting into oxygen service. With the demand for medical oxygen and the fact that many facilities fill a large volume of medical oxygen in aluminum cylinders; this topic was chosen to provide any insight and to help answer any questions you may have to keep your operation running safely and efficiently.
We will review what kind of Specialty Gas Equipment is needed in order to blend different types of calibration gases and mixtures. There are different types of blending panels based upon what type of gases will be filled. This includes automated and manual panels. We will also review the related equipment for making mixtures such as prep manifolds, cylinder bake out units, and cylinder homogenizing.
Many locations are looking to do 5.0 grade Specialty Gases for the inert gases they fill. We will discuss what instruments are needed for analyzing these gases. We will also cover how to set up a proper sampling system. We will show typical lab set-ups that includes the analytical to do industrial, medical, 5.0 grade SG, and custom mixtures up to and including laser gas mixtures.
In this webinar we will be talking about different manifolds for gas packs in various service. This will be presented from an educational “Manifolds 101” point of view. There are many options as far as material of construction, working pressure, valve style, etc. We are going to take a look at some of the most common styles and help you understand what is best for each application.
There are many different styles of vacuum pump for different applications. In this webinar, we are going to take a look at some of the common ones that many of us have seen, as well as the less common ones. We will cover their specific applications and take a look at a vacuum system as a whole to see what else is involved.
We will be covering the basics of vacuum from the technology involved to why we use the measurements we do. Vacuums and the technology associated with them apply to much of our lives in a fill plant. This will be presented from an educational point of view. An open live Q&A session, with a panel of Gas Master experts, will be featured after the training so your questions and comments can be addressed.
In this webinar we did an overview on the tips and suggestions for a cryogenic pump installation for a customer station, distributor and/or thermosiphon bulk tank. Significant tribal knowledge on this topic will be shared along with in-the-field examples of good and poor installations. This was presented from an educational point of view.
Looking to find ways in improving the effectiveness and performance of your cryogenic pipe lines? This webinar was an overview of guidelines and suggestions from what the Weldcoa team has learned on pump piping insulation over the years. This was presented from an educational point of view.
When converting cylinders from one gas service to another, special considerations must be given to ensure a safe, successful exchange. In this webinar Kevin Klotz addressed those considerations, the benefits and disadvantages within, as well as reviewing the most up-to-date CGA literature and recent safety alert SA-36 and top safety concerns when converting between gas services. This was presented from an educational point of view.
