Chart Industries Inc. has installed a 11,000gallon argon tank for WestAir Gases & Equipment at its National City, California plant location

The 11,000gallon tank is an upgrade from the previous 6,000gallon Chart tank, almost doubling capacity. The additional capacity will provide WestAir with more of a buffer to handle the current volumes the company is seeing in Southern California.

The Siphon 100® Bulk Storage Tank, manufactured and installed by Chart, will be used for argon service for HP bottle and liquid cylinder filling.

Chart’s Siphon 100 bulk tank will provide a reliable performance. The siphon technology reduces the heat from pumping, ensure minimal product losses and will give a better performance and longer life on West Air’s cryogenic pumps.

WestAir and Chart have been in partnership for over 20 years and have teamed up for many engineering and installation projects.
