Gas Storage for Central Gas Mixing Installations

A buffer tank of mixed gas is required, ready to be drawn off, in order to overcome fluctuations in demand when feeding multiple gas flushing packaging lines.

Without this reserve, the packaging machines are likely to run more slowly, due to gas starvation.

Horizontal & vertical tanks in painted mild steel, or stainless steel, are available in a range of sizes. Buffer tanks are continuously, or repeatedly, replenished to a set pressure from tanks, or bottles of the single gasses.

A two or three gas mixer, such as the Dansensor MAP Mix Provectus, needs to be connected into the pipework, that runs between the gas bottles and the buffer tank.

When the gasses are replenished through the high flow MAP Mix Provectus, uninterrupted production can be assured.

When installed by us and our industrial pipework partner, we supply the buffer tank, complete with fittings, valves, pressure gauge and a platform for mounting the gas mixer(s). The MAP Mix Provectus is connected to the buffer tank with a narrow bore hose.

The gas pressure in the buffer tank can then be constantly monitored. When the gas pressure in the buffer tank drops below a trigger point set by the user, the MAP Mix Provectus automatically replenishes the buffer tank back to the maximum set pressure.
