The Science and Engineering Building utilizes a gas delivery system that allows users to connect their tanks outside the laboratory and gases are piped inside to instrumentation or bench top processes. This system has several advantages over keeping tanks inside the lab. Cylinders no longer take up excessive space inside, tank tip hazard is removed, and lab personnel no longer need to handle tanks.
Having the cylinders outside the lab allows tanks to be delivered by the vendor to the appropriate tank corral and attached to a changeover systems allowing for constant gas delivery without interruption. Occupants can get more information about the changeover gas system here.
