ALLENTOWN, Pennsylvania -- Air Products has launched a new system for tracking of gas cylinders and equipment. The new service uses bar code technology on gas cylinders, cylinder packs, and baskets. Customers are provided with a hand-held scanner system allowing them to log the location of their equipment each time it is moved. Data and equipment reports can then be accessed in real-time through a web-based system.
"By using the new cylinder tracking system we can keep close control over deliveries and returns and help offshore operators to improve efficiency and reduce their rental costs," says Gary Homewood, Air Products' offshore sales manager.
