CYLINDER MANAGEMENT PROCESS
Jet Stream CGS’s highly trained professional staff uses a safe, proven process in the field that includes the following services
1. IDENTIFICATION AND INSPECTION
We identify and assess the contents of spent compressed gas cylinders. A pile of miscellaneous gas cylinders presents a serious hazard as it sits in your scrap yard, transfer station or other recovery facility.
We recapture and recycle any valuable gases. Gases such as freon, nitrogen and nitrous oxide can be recovered and repackaged in cylinders that can be resold.
Most cylinders contain easily manageable substances such as oxygen, nitrogen, propane and acetylene. We safely extract the gas residue by venting or flaring.
We prepare damaged cylinders to be recycled as scrap metal. We puncture the tank or shear off the valve so you can safely process or sell them and turn your risk into reward.
If we encounter hazardous or mystery cylinders onsite that cannot be identified we supply options and pricing for removal and disposal of these potentially dangerous cylinders safely through third party vendors. We assist the client in managing these vendors that specialize in hazardous cylinder disposal through approved methods that meet all regulatory requirements. In our experience this is rarely encountered (less than 0.5% of over 250,000 cylinders we have processed over the past 5 years), but we are prepared to support our clients if the need arises.
