Whether you have cylinders at just one location, multiple jobsites or multiple locations, Linde’s five-point SENTRY™ cylinder tracking system can help you manage your cylinders – and handle business – more efficiently.
Although you may keep an inventory of cylinders that come in and out of your facility, cylinders can be overlooked when you have many in use and stored at different locations. This can lead to inaccuracies in cylinder inventories and loss of use discrepancies.
Linde’s five-point SENTRY™ cylinder tracking system can help you manage your cylinders, and handle business, more efficiently. The SENTRY system utilizes barcode and scanning technology to automate the tracking and management of cylinders, cylinder clusters and liquid cylinders through production, delivery, cylinder use and return. This helps ensure accurate cylinder balances, deliveries and billing as compared with traditional paper-based systems. Cylinders are tracked by serial number so even if a barcode is removed from an asset, traceability is not lost.
