Reducing the carbon footprint of gas equipment

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.PACK

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.


CEFRANK Cylinder Bundles; why our bundles are better

Our manifolded cylinder bundles, or ‘packs’ as we generally call them, are the cornerstone product of CEFRANK UK. Founder and Director Frank Cetinich developed his unique product over a number of years and with a wealth of experience in the industry. What started as a career in trouble-shooting for various major gas companies in and around Australia, Mr Cetinich could see a place in the market for a new kind of cylinder bundle. He was tired of seeing equipment that was over-engineered, over-weight and difficult to maintain. After much consideration, research and development Mr Cetinich came up with the prototype for the CEFRANK manifolded cylinder pack. Not only did our design break the convention of existing market models but the concept of going out-of-house for  cylinder equipment was also a challenge to the status quo.

What started as a quest to offer an gas cylinder equipment alternative to the gas companies became a mission to develop the ultimate, universal pack that could be bought and used in every country, conform to the strictest safety standards across all industries and above all be easy to use and cheap to maintain. We achieved this goal and believe ours to the best cylinder pack on the market today.

Why a CEFRANK pack is different


The CEFRANK pack is different because it is light weight, designed on principles of simplicity and efficiency, and yet strong enough and secure enough to handle over 10 years of active use in the field. We guarantee our product for 10 years.


The CEFRANK pack is different because it is based on a modular design which is assembled using lock-nuts instead of requiring welds. This is where our product really comes into its own. The modular, bolted nature of the CEFRANK cylinder pack means that it can be shipped efficiently and cost effectively to anywhere in the world. Transporting our disassembled packs is extremely cost effective because they are flat-packed.

The CEFRANK pack is different because it has a life-long cost-effective maintenance built in to the design. The modular, bolted frame means that when a pack is damaged in the field or needs repair, you simply isolate and remove the damaged piece and replace it with a new piece from your inventory (or from ours). Because the parts are bolted together you don’t need to worry about having welders, or losing the integrity of the weld or galvanising in the process. It also means you can save time and cost on repairs. In fact, our pack will save you up to 80% of the cost of maintenance during the lifetime of the product which could exceed the industry standard by many, many years.
