A look back at 25 years of cylinder manufacturing


Worthington Industries takes a closer look at the changes in cylinder technology and manufacturing during the last quarter-century — changes that have made gas and liquid storage more convenient for the end user and more efficient for gas distributors and producers.

A lot can happen in 25 years. In 1990, the year CryoGas International published its inaugural issue, the World Wide Web was in its infancy and mobile phones were strictly phones — not the sophisticated tools we use today.
