Order for 800 tons of gas cylinder tubes to GCM in July 2019

In May 2019, IMRISTEEL sent its first product recommendation email to a customer (later known as GCM), a powerful manufacturer of gas cylinders and accumulators in Argentina.  GCM is interested in the products of IMRISTEEL.  Due to the high technical requirements of the cylinder tube, IMRISTEEL had in-depth communication with the GCM technical department and conducted several tests over the next month.  GCM was very pleased with the test results.  


In July 2019, GCM placed its first unexpected order for 800 tons of gas cylinder tubes.  To ensure that every detail was in line with GCM’s requirements, GCM agreed to deliver the cargo in two batches. In August 2019, IMRISTEEL prepared the first batch of 300 tons of cylinder tube bobbin, which was tested and the customer was very satisfied with the product.  Especially for the wall thickness control, the standard requires the wall thickness tolerance to be 0% to + 25%, but our actual wall thickness control is in the range of 0% to + 18%, and the actual average wall thickness is 7.7mm, which exceeds the customer’s expectation.  This means that our products not only guarantee the safety of GCM cylinders, but also help reduce the significant cost of GCM.  


In October 2019, the remaining 500 tons of cylinder tubes were delivered, all of which are 12m/long. The maximum length of this batch of cylinder tubes is 12.03m, which is a difficult problem for a 40GP load.  Through cooperation with freight forwarders, we completed all packing tasks without damaging the container or increasing the transportation cost of GCM.  


This is a perfect project and further orders are being executed…
