SentryTM Cylinder Tracking

Reduce the time and labor costs of asset management with Linde’s Sentry™ cylinder tracking system

Linde’s five point Sentry™ cylinder tracking system can help you do 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 to traditional paper based systems. Cylinders are tracked by serial number so that traceability is not lost even if a barcode is removed from an asset.

The Sentry system works whether you have cylinders at just one location, multiple job sites or multiple locations within a large campus with multiple business units, budgets and delivery points. Linde’s Sentry cylinder tracking system can help you keep the most complicated scenarios well managed.

Sentry system advantages:

  • Increases the accuracy of cylinder balances and rental billing
  • Previously lost or stolen cylinders are identified and removed from your cylinder balance upon their return to the system
  • Increases the accuracy of cylinder balances among multiple job sites or campus locations
  • Easier to conduct physical audits / cylinder counts with more accurate count data. Expedited audit reconciliation and resolution of balance discrepancies.
