For Italian cylinder manufacturer Ricos, one of the main topics from these strange and uncertain times is the growth of smart working. “It’s something so far apart from our past lives and yet so present nowadays in our everyday life,” Michele Parise, Sales Manager, told gasworld. “We like to think that the remote control of physical objects is a concept and a process that fits perfectly into the idea of keeping something under control despite the distance.”
With this in mind, Ricos in collaboration with Zancanella, launched a new restyled gas cylinder bundle under its own brand, Gas-y, with an IOT system for tracking, Spuriot, in 2020. “Our principal aim was to make it appealing for the market, asking ourselves why an industrial object could not be an example of design, strength, safety and economy too,” Parise explained. “During this stage, we found a lack between the traceability sector, the high-pressure experts and the world of design. Gas-y and Spuriot aim to fill this gap, introducing the ability to adapt itself in all different gas industrial spaces with a cutting-edge product that respects all safety measures required and fits well within Industry 4.0, with all the fiscal advantages related.”
The gas cylinder bundle also contains an PCB (print circuit board) provided with a SIM card, a GPS and a pressure transducer. The presence of all these elements allows the transmission of all relevant data with minimum effort – only positioning of the device. Not least of all, the gas cylinder bundle includes a long-lasting battery that guarantees a durable service through the years at the minimum cost.
