With so many configurations available for gas cylinder changeover systems in your CO2 or nitrogen setup, it can be challenging to determine which variety is best suited to your specific application. While we can all agree that automatic changeover systems outperform manual switchover valves in most scenarios, the differences between electric and non-electric changeover valves are sometimes less clear.

Industrial, academic, and private laboratories use nitrogen, oxygen, and other gases to complete an extensive range of applications. For delicate processes to succeed, gas flow must be steady, consistent, and constant. Interruptions caused by cylinders depleting during off-hours or changing a gas canister manually can have a negative impact on your operation’s outcome. Luckily, there is an easy solution to help you avoid these delays and disturbances: automatic gas cylinder switchovers for laboratory equipment.

Nitrogen gas laser cutters use heat from a laser to melt metal material, creating precise and uniform cuts. Nitrogen gas is then used to remove any leftover metal from the cut and surface. When the gas cylinders have been depleted, operations cease until new, full cylinders have been installed into your machinery. The delay created by manually changing cylinders can result in costly interruptions, imprecise cuts, and other critical failures.

Applications such as microbreweries, grow tents, and others require a continuous feed of CO2 gas to operate efficiently and have high-quality, profitable outputs. Gas changeover valves are a vital part of your CO2 system and are designed to keep your gas flow consistent. CO2 gas changeover valves work by regulating the amount of gas entering your system during all hours of the day, delivering gas with minimal disruptions.

Many bars and restaurants use carbon dioxide (CO2) to carbonate soda or draw tap beer. This gas is versatile, popular, and extremely dangerous. Often referred to as the silent killer, CO2 is tasteless, odorless, and colorless, meaning that workers and restaurant or bar patrons can be exposed without realizing it until symptoms occur. CO2 safety is a top concern for any commercial restaurant or bar, as prolonged or concentrated exposure can cause death.

The right draft beer dispensing equipment can make or break the drinking experience for your customers. After all, there’s nothing better than a perfect pour: the crisp and clean flavors, the light aroma, and an excellent head at an optimal temperature. However, a bad pour generated by sub-par bar equipment can quickly shatter that amazing drinking experience and cause paying customers to take their money elsewhere.

Plants require carbon dioxide (CO2) to grow, prosper, and propagate. However, when raised in a sealed grow room, plants may struggle to access the amount of CO2 they need to thrive. Using a CO2 regulator and controller setup for plants in your grow room allows you to produce higher yields in less time.

Plants require carbon dioxide (CO2) to thrive and survive. When growing outside or in the wild, plants have access to all the CO2 they need. Plants grown indoors in a grow tent or grow room can take advantage of the optimal temperature and CO2 conditions provided by CO2 systems to provide a more profitable return.
