CEFRANK has been developing and refining the design of our manifolded cylinder pack for many years and we never truly stop. When ever a new idea presents itself or an opportunity for innovation arrives, we always explore the possibilities. It was in the spirit of exploration and innovation that CEFRANK was created in the first place. Founder/director Mr Frank Cetinich saw a gap in the market for gas cylinder equipment that was universal, a manifolded cylinder bundle that took the best features of existing market models and rolled them into one product. Mr Cetinich envisaged the the democratisation and standardisation of gas cylinder equipment. Of course he still fights for this. Each gas company has its own methods, standards and models and consequently the market is flooded with myriad varieties requiring a lengthy and thorough industrial standard and a cottage industry of paraphernalia to maintain and use them.
Our design developments have usually been spurred on by the need to remain competitive in the market. Necessity is, after all, the mother of invention. By thinking outside the square and taking advantage of the peerless wealth of experience and knowledge that Mr Cetinich has, CEFRANK has been able to create a product unmatched in not only its usability but in its eco-friendly status. Made up of over 95% recyclable materials like steel, zinc and brass, our manifolded cylinder bundles/packs and cylinder pallets have the lowest carbon footprint of any rival products. We know this because our cylinder bundles are light-weight, fully galvanised and bolted which means they can be shipped flat-packed saving on packaging and, handling and fuel and they can also be put together without the need for welding and the associated emissions. We have even developed a special slim-fit cylinder bundle that can fit up to 17 x 12 cylinder bundles into a standard 20 foot container.
Design, material and manufacturing changes to components and configurations of our manifold have led us to develop manifolds that are easy to access and safe and yet benefit from an efficient use of materials through engineering know-how. Whether it’s the material of the specific component, the size and shape of the thread, the tape or the configuration of the tubing, CEFRANK manifolds and cylinder bundles have been put together to make the most Spartan use of resources. Our technologies appear invisible to the untrained eye, but to experts in the field, our product is second to none in all aspects ranging from the details of the parts to the assembly of the product. Every single element of our cylinder bundle has been honed and refined to be simple in function and form, reliable and robust in application and kind to the environment.
