Linde launches enhanced digital cylinder management service
Linde Gases, a division of The Linde Group, today announced the launch of a new cloud-based version of its cylinder inventory intelligence service, ACCURA®. The internet-based system aims to significantly increase productivity, improve traceability and safety and deliver cost savings for gas cylinder users.


The ACCURA® cloud based platform
Each Linde cylinder, uniquely identified electronically, holds specific data on its contents and whereabouts. Each time the cylinder is moved, it is scanned and traced with real time location data uploaded to the ACCURA® cloud-based platform. The service enables live information on gas cylinder stock levels, movement history and usage patterns to be accessed via Linde‘s mobile app for smartphones and tablets or via a regular web browser. Tools including re-ordering assist and gas consumption reports help increase productivity, especially for customers requiring an uninterrupted gas supply for process continuity. Improved safety and quality is an important benefit of the service, with enhanced visibility of potentially hazardous products and cylinder expiry dates. ACCURA® can also help gas users meet regulatory compliance obligations in industries, such as pharmaceutical manufacturing or food processing, that mandate high levels of traceability.

“Linde has always played a leading role in gas technology innovation,” said Kathy Hocker, Head of Packaged Gases, Linde. “We are constantly innovating to provide our customers with the state-of-the-art tools to enable them to do their jobs efficiently and safely and ACCURA® is a significant step forward in improving the cylinder management side of our customers’ business.”

This picture demonstrates the ACCURA cylinder management smartphone app in use. The customer scans the cylinder using the camera on their smartphone. Here the “asset scan” screen is shown. Improved cylinder asset management can deliver significant cost savings through the location and identification of missing or underused cylinders, improved stock inventory planning and reduced cylinder handling and administration.

The enhanced digital ACCURA® service was recently successfully piloted in Australia and will be rolled out across that region and others in the coming months.
