Uses for Offshore Bottle Racks

Specialty gases are needed offshore for a variety of purposes including welding, diving or fuel for certain machinery.

Due to the corrosive atmosphere offshore and the high useage of steel for platforms, routine maintenance and repairs of the steel work needs to be carried out. This is why gas for welding is a necessity. 

 Gasses that are usually transported include argon, acetylene and oxygen.
