Fast, Quality-Controlled Industrial Gas Filling:

Our automated industrial gas facility bottles oxygen, helium, argon, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, cryogenic liquid, and a variety of industrial gas mixes.

What makes Butler Gas Products unique is our integration back into manufacturing, independent gas capabilities, specialized services and people, and customized packaged gas solutions. Our industrial gas plant is located at our primary distribution center, ensuring the fastest turns and next-day delivery lead times on our core product mix.

Engineered and built by our industry partners CryoVation, our industrial gas plant is designed for high volume production, exceptional quality standardization, increased safety, and overall heightened operational efficiency. Through this improved efficiency, we are able to combat rising raw material costs while never compromising fast delivery, accurate products, and innovative service.

We Manufacture Acetylene

Butler Gas Products exchanges Acetylene MCs (10 scf) and NBs (40 scf), and directly fills all larger cylinder sizes.

Acetylene cylinders are packed with a porous material having minute cellular spaces so that no pockets of appreciable size remain where “free” acetylene in gaseous form can collect. This porous mass is saturated with acetone in which acetylene dissolves. The combination of these two features- porous filler mass and acetone- allows acetylene to be contained in such cylinders at moderate pressure without danger of explosive decomposition.

Acetylene, a colorless flammable gas slightly lighter than air, is a compound of carbon and hydrogen. It burns in air with an intensely hot, luminous, smoky flame. Gaseous acetylene under pressure can decompose with explosive force under certain conditions, but experience indicates that 15 psig is generally acceptable as a safe upper pressure limit when proper equipment and procedures are used. For additional acetylene safety information, always refer to the product label and SDS.

Industrial Propane Solutions

We fill propane at all Butler Gas Products locations, and offer cylinder exchange via delivery for our business customers.

Propane, a common liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), is flammable, colorless, noncorrosive, and nontoxic. Easily liquefied under pressure at ambient temperature, propane is shipped and stored as liquid. It is used in gaseous and liquid form as fuel in many diverse applications including space heating, cooking, running fork lifts, heat treating, brazing, and metal cutting.

Butler Gas Products supports two primary propane models:  serving retail customers who purchase their own cylinders, and delivering portable propane tanks to our business customers. Our three western Pennsylvania locations all service the public with propane tank inspection and filling. Additionally, we offer delivery and propane cylinder exchange to our business customers who have an account with us.

Butler Gas Products offers DOT-approved portable propane cylinders for sale, lease, and rent in a variety of sizes. We offer safe, fully-filled cylinders (filled to the Overfill Prevention Device). Propane storage cages and racks are also available.

Tube Trailers

As a regional manufacturer and distributor, we follow our model of investing in the gas business. With ultimate portability, tube trailers are ideal for high volume, high pressure applications. With tube trailer capabilities in helium, hydrogen, and nitrogen, the Butler Gas Products fleet enables us to meet the diverse demands of our treasured customers.

High pressure nonliquefied gases at ambient temperatures are often shipped by highway in tube trailers. These are truck semitrailers on which a number of very long gas cylinders have been horizontally mounted on a motor vehicle chassis and manifolded into a common header. Our tube trailers are built to comply with DOT cylinder specifications and TC cylinder and tube specifications. Our trailers serve as the storage supply for many valued customers, and we replace empty trailers with full ones as needed.
