Supply of gases as fuel or raw material is vital to many industrial and commercial processes. Gases are either supplied through cylinders, pipelines or in bulk form. The World market for gas cylinders witnessed a major change during the past few decades with the introduction of CNG as an alternate fuel. The other major market is the packaged gas segment, which is primarily used for industrial application. The company is targeting the markets of Middle East, which includes the GCC states such as UAE and countries such as Iran, Egypt, and South Asian countries such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh and also South East Asian nations such as Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar etc.
To take advantage of this favourable demand scenario, Associate High Pressure Technologies Private Limited plans to set-up a Greenfield facility for manufacturing CNG-NGV cylinders at Kandla Special Economic Zone (Kandla SEZ). In this regards the Company has already procured about 15 acres of land at the Kandla SEZ.
The Associate Group's High Pressure Gas Cylinders unit will target sectors where compressed gas is used in a wide variety of industrial as well as end-user applications. The range typically addresses cylinder requirements for industrial gases, medical gases, gases in fire fighting equipment, accumulator shells, for use in the beverage industry, aerospace and scientific research. Cylinders are also specifically manufactured for storing and packing CNG (compressed natural gas) for breathing apparatus and also serving as an alternate fuel, thereby reducing pollution.
Used mostly for packing and transporting gases such as oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, argon and helium under extreme pressure, cylinders must be tough and able to withstand rough handling. Our cylinders are manufactured by adhering to the strictest national and international standards and have passed inspection with respect to Internal and External Surfaces, Thickness, Circularity of Cylindrical Shells and Verticality, Specified external and internal finish, Hardness, Hydro stretch test, Air leakage, Verification of threading, and verification of marking details. Our capacities range from 5 to 250 litres and we can also customise as per a clients specific requirement.
