A gas distribution and management system that automatically switches between two high-pressure, high-flow gases to provide interchangeable service and continuous supply has been introduced by CONCOA.
The 544 series IntelliSwitch IIv is designed to switch between two gas sources without interruption. It is suitable for automation projects involving high-pressure gases and management of gaseous withdrawal from any source, including cryogenic liquid cylinders, high-pressure cylinder banks, tube trailers, generators, compressors, or bulk.
Proprietary economization software nearly eliminates liquid cylinder vent loss and reduces residual return. Switching is actuated as inlet pressure falls below a user-defined point by means of a web interface or a serial port. A web server allows for remote monitoring and e-mail notification of events to users.
