Productivity Matters


Keep the Productivity Flowing with Linde’s HERCULES™ Oxygen Microbulk System

Apr 19, 2022

As your business continues to grow, you may find yourself evaluating ways to make up for those vital minutes that get lost during the cylinder change process or the return of cylinders with residual gas still in the tank. If so, it’s time to find an efficient, simplified alternative to swapping cylinders or handling dewars as your need for greater volumes of gas increases.

Introducing the HERCULES™ Oxygen Microbulk System

As part of the microbulk gas delivery system, Linde’s HERCULES™ microbulk oxygen system is a line of palletized cylinders in rugged, flyable frames with capacities of 450 and 1000 liters. This portable microbulk system supplies oxygen service in a package that is ideal for work sites that demand products in rugged, maneuverable packages able to withstand tough or extreme environments.

The flyable cage allows the HERCULES system to be lifted by crane or moved by forklift, while full, around work sites, wherever they are needed.  The HERCULES oxygen tank is a high-pressure tank allowing for a MAWP of 350 psi. The 450-liter oxygen tank replaces three 12-packs of 300 SCF high pressure cylinders on-site and the 1000-liter oxygen replaces eight 12-packs of 300 SCF high pressure cylinders.

Highlights of the HERCULES™ Oxygen Microbulk System

  • Small, liquid bulk supply that can be moved while full
  • Robust inner support system
  • Galvanized steel frame with an aluminum cover
  • Super insulation provides long lasting vacuum
  • Valve controlled road relief circuit with 22psi relief valve so the cylinder can be shipped full based on DOT cryogenic exception rule CFR 49 section 173.320 for 1000L model
  • Cellular telemetry monitors and reports tank levels for in time deliveries


Installed at your site, Linde microbulk and bulk gas supply systems replace high-pressure gas cylinders with a high-quality, continuous gas supply. Linde cellular telemetry minimizes the possibility of product runouts and cylinder handling that can interrupt your business. Replacing multiple cylinders with a single microbulk oxygen or large STARFLAME™ C tank frees up valuable space and reduces the time spent with cylinder deliveries and cylinder inventory.
