What Is Microbulk?

CryoEase® Microbulk Solutions, a Cost-effective Alternative to Cylinder Supply

Microbulk is a modern concept where your gas is supplied by filling on-site vs. the traditional method for smaller volume usage where gas is supplied by swapping full for empty cylinders and dewars. Microbulk supply features specially designed tank trucks with integrated controls and flexible storage tank options built with automatic shutoff devices.

Outstanding features mean exceptional performance

Various tank sizes, pressures and configurations are available to meet your needs.

Product features include:

  • Programmable digital liquid level gauge enables you to manage inventory and guard against runouts
  • Optional remote alarms and telemetry monitoring programs
  • Outdoor or indoor installation
  • Optional wall box for remote filling
  • Portable 230-liter containers
  • 450-, 1000-, 1500- and 2000-liter permanently installed containers with flexible site prep options

STEP 5: Service initiation and ongoing supply

Reordering product can be tedious and time-consuming. We can take the headache of ordering gas out of your hands. With Air Products’ telemetry monitoring programs, your gas consumption can be monitored, and your product will be automatically replenished when required.

We use a specially designed fleet of trucks. These vehicles tend to be significantly smaller than traditional bulk tankers, and are able to visit less accessible delivery locations. Moreover, the vehicles are fitted with a special pumping system which means your gas supply from the microbulk tank is uninterrupted.
