Bluff Manufacturing Expands Line to Provide Solutions for Gas Industry 1/13/2014 New product offerings from Bluff Manufacturing were developed to help specialty gas industry customers

FORT WORTH, TX – January, 2014Bluff Manufacturing, an innovative leader in the fabrication and design of high quality material handling, dock and warehouse equipment, storage structures, and safety barriers, is proud to announce that they are expanding their line of gas industry products in order to be a full-solution provider to the industry.

Aluminum Plate for Gas CylindersRecently, one of the largest U.S. distributors of industrial, medical and specialty gases, and hard goods, approached Bluff Manufacturing to find a solution that would help employees move gas canisters up and down curbs safely. In the gas cylinder distribution process, steel cylinder pallets are used to hold both filled and depleted cylinders. Bluff Manufacturing developed AWL and AWC Aluminum Plates, specially designed for the safe transport and distribution of gas cylinders on and off pallets, which would allow employees to get gas canisters up and down the curb without having to lift them.

The AWL and AWC Plates provide excellent transition surfaces for maneuvering cylinders with ease and control, significantly reducing the risk of damage to cylinders and property as well as injury to personnel handling the cylinders. The customer wanted to ensure that employees always knew the capacity limits on the plates so that they would not be used inappropriately. After conducting research, Bluff found a way to efficiently etch the capacity into each plate so that the information would always be available.

When another customer, one of the largest independent welding and industrial gas suppliers in the Gulf States, Louisiana and Texas areas, approached Bluff Manufacturing with a need for sturdy gas cylinder pallets, to fit their custom trucks, Bluff met the challenge and designed a product to meet their specific needs. Bluff’s steel gas cylinder pallets are used in the gas cylinder distribution process to hold both filled and depleted cylinders. These unique plates provide an excellent transition surface for maneuvering cylinders with ease and control, significantly reducing cylinder damage and the risk of employee injury. 3/8" thick aluminum diamond plate construction is strong enough to accommodate heavy cylinders, yet lightweight for easy hand placement and portability. ANSI code and weight capacity is stamped onto the back of each plate.

Bluff Manufacturing is currently in the process of expanding their line of product solutions for the gas industry, which will all be paired with exemplary customer service and Bluffs quality guarantee. Bluff’s offers customized laser engraving of customer’s names on products for consistent branding.
