Industrial gas distribution


Right from nursing homes and hospitals who need such essential gases as Oxygen up to the modern industries requiring Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen and Argon, industrial gases have found a wide customer base.

Accordingly a whole trade of manufacturing and supplying industrial gases in the form of individual cylinders or a whole grid of interconnected cylinders (with tubes) called as a trolley has come up recently.

However like all modern trades, this segment too has its own set of individual challenges.

The Challenges

A peculiarity of this business is that unlike other commodity, gas has to be transported in business owners’ own containers, namely cylinders or trolleys. You can’t pour it into bags or buckets of the users like solids and liquids. At the same time this container must be brought back to the manufacturing / filling site in order to refill and redespatch.

So technically the commodity being sold (Gas) is different from the items (cylinders) whose inventory needs to be managed. This is difficult / impossible to handle in default set up of Tally. ERP9.
