Gas Cylinder Warehouse

The Gas Cylinder Warehouse supplies The Ohio State University with cylinder gases, liquid nitrogen and accessories. We stock the most commonly requested items and will special order any item you need. In addition to stocking an assortment of gases, we carry a variety of spare parts for gas cylinders. 

Gas Demurrage (Rental) Charges

All gas cylinders for the University are to be purchased through the Gas Cylinder Warehouse. When the cylinder leaves the warehouse, it is tracked using the barcode attached to it. 

Once a customer receives a cylinder from the Gas Cylinder Warehouse, they will automatically be charged a demurrage for each cylinder in their possession at the end of each month. The rate of demurrage varies based on the size and type of cylinder. This will continue until the customer schedules a return for the cylinder back to the Gas Cylinder Warehouse.

The gas product within the tank is billed separately from the demurrage.

Inventory and Custody

It is the end users responsibility to maintain inventory and keep accurate records of their cylinders from the point they are delivered to the building, until the time they are returned to the Gas Cylinder Warehouse. The Gas Cylinder Warehouse will deliver and pick up the cylinders from the area instructed by the end user. While cylinders are in the customer's possession and within their buildings, it is the end users responsibility to know where the cylinders are being stored, and that they are being stored in a safe manner. It is suggested that each end user does a periodic audit of cylinders in their building to ensure accuracy of their demurrage expense. The demurrage report is available in eReports, under Inventory Billing, and provides a list of all the cylinders on campus.
