The CEFRANK Cylinder Pallet

The great thing about a blog is that it gives you the chance to talk about things in a less formal manner. We often find that many customers and enquiries are hesitant to get talking or ask questions about our products because it is a very niche part of the larger compressed gas industry and the products themselves, in particular the manifolded cylinder bundles, or ‘packs’ as we call them, are a bit of a mystery to many. Not everyone working in the field knows much about or even understands what the manifolded packs actually do. The pallets on the other hand are a much simpler product, and a good place to start our informal discussion about our products.

Ever since we developed our CEFRANK pallet, we’ve had inquiries and orders from all over the world and some unexpected markets. Steel pallets are a fairly standard item in many industries, but there’s a reason people keep coming back to our product.  The reason is that CEFRANK pallets are specially designed for most cost effective maintenance, shipping and handling. Over the years we’d had jobs where we would  receive hundreds of pallets for repair and maintenance, and it was then that our founder, Frank Cetinich saw the potential for a product that could be repaired onsite and as needed. No welding required, no painting or touch-ups and most importantly very little down time.

Our steel, galvanised pallets are modular and bolted. This means that they come to you disassembled and flat-packed, straight from our factory with instructions on how to assemble with a small selection of simple tools. Our pallets don’t need to be welded together, meaning they don’t need specialist tradespeople for assembly or repair jobs. Two able bodies, with a small tool kit and some cooperation is all it takes to put together the CEFRANK pallet.

CEFRANK has been in business for 30 years. What began as a trouble-shooting contracting solution, grew into a family business with a very specialised product – compressed gas bundles and pallets. But not just any kind of bundle or pallet, but a unique modular design that would and still confronts many in the industry because of its modular, bolted character. Frank Cetinich developed the exclusive bolted design after years of research and development, years of travel and investigation that allowed him to come up with a product that could offer true universality. CEFRANK products can be used all over the world. Our design complies with all standards and regulations. We offer a 10 year guarantee on parts and labour (not withstanding physical or chemical abuse) and on customer satisfaction.

We’ve discussed the benefits of the CEFRANK pack or bundle and we’ve looked at the advantages of our cylinder pallet. But today, let’s look at the Filling System. Another strategy developed by Frank Cetinich, the CEFRANK filling system embraces simplicity of design and ease of use. Using the Gravimetric Scale System, you can mix gases with a high level of accuracy and with our 2-spring design you can comfortably fill from 1 to 32 cylinders simultaneously with Argon, Nitrogen, Industrial Oxygen and Mixed Gases. When used in conjunction with our pallets you can significantly increase your gas filling rate. Because we build our system to ensure compatibility with your valves fittings, you can be assured that there will be no modification costs.
