Body Text: GOW-MAC Instrument Company, a leading manufacturer of gas analysis instrumentation and compressed gas handling equipment, introduces an 8-cylinder rolling rack designed to keep technical dive gas mixes from stratifying before use.
Technical diving premixed breathing gases such as nitrox (O2/N2) and heliox (O2/He) have very different densities in the mix. All professional sources say that after storage, gases with differing densities in the cylinder will stratify. Cylinder rolling insures a homogeneous mixture of the components. Some experts say cylinders should be rolled after filling, shortly before use, under very short storage conditions, or if cylinders were not filled properly. One major gas supplier says, "Depending on the gases involved, natural gas mixing without rolling will take varied times. This is the reason that rolling is encouraged for every mixture."
GOW-MAC's cylinder roller is specifically designed to roll 1 to 8 high pressure, scuba-type cylinders at once. Features include a frame mounted control box in which resides a programmable timer, automatic or manual cycle controls, and power/start/stop switches with indicating lamps. Other features include an emergency-stop mechanism; ease of loading and off loading; and quiet operation.
