Types of Gas Cylinders We Transport

Gas Cylinder Shipping Requirements

Gas cylinders are used for storing and transporting compressed gases. They come in different shapes, sizes, and weights, and we know how to handle all types. Depending on the number and weight of gas cylinders you’re shipping, the specialist processing your shipment will choose a suitable trailer or truck to transport them. We use different types of handling equipment, such as forklifts, to load and unload gas cylinders before they’re well secured with strong straps. Below are the different types of gas cylinders we transport. 

  • Oxygen Gas Cylinders: Used in medical sectors to supply oxygen to patients during surgery or with breathing conditions.
  • Propane Gas Cylinders: They’re used in appliances such as grills and camping stoves, cooking, and heating.
  • Carbon Dioxide Gas Cylinders: Used in the beverage industry for preservation, welding applications, and fire suppression systems.
  • Acetylene Gas Cylinders: used in cutting operations and welding areas where high temperature is required.

What's the Best Way to Transport Compressed Gas Cylinders?

The best way to haul compressed gas cylinders is by contacting a company with experience and resources. Wide Load Shipping will fully insure your gas cylinders to protect them against damage that could occur during transport. Gas cylinders are delicate and require to be handled with total care. They can explode or roll off a moving truck, causing damage. We fill out a bill of lading form at the pick-up location to note down the condition of your gas cylinders. That form helps us at the delivery location to confirm whether they arrived in a similar state. If the gas cylinders don’t match the details on the bill of lading form, you will be fully compensated. Our drivers are careful not to speed when shipping gas cylinders since vigorous movement could lead to straps getting loose, causing damage. In addition, they stop often to ensure the straps holding the cylinders are tightened.
