Bridging the gap between high pressure cylinders and low pressure bulk tanks, mini-bulk tanks offer capacities of 1,000 and 1,500 lb (454 and 680 kg). The Mini-Bulk Low Pressure Carbon Dioxide Systems provide an alternative to manifolding high pressure cylinders. The tanks are configured vertically to save valuable floor space. Mini-bulk tanks provide protection for non-occupied total flood, local application hazards, hose reels or custom designs such as inerting or spurt systems.
Each mini-bulk tank is equipped with a low-cost, high-efficiency, air-cooled refrigeration unit. The refrigerant media, R134a, is environment-friendly and efficient. Most system components are interchangeable between the mini-bulk system and the larger bulk storage tank system. Typical hazards protected by carbon dioxide systems include printing presses, transformer vaults/electrical cabinets, open pits, dip tanks, rolling mills, ovens, coating machines, process equipment, exhaust and fume handling systems, flammable gas or liquid storage areas, generators, and inerting applications.
