Why was FLEXSPEED such a revolutionary system? Well, for one, it more than tripled the standard maximum capacity for LPG filling carrousels. Prior to FLEXSPEED, it was widely accepted that approx. 1,200 cylinders per hour was the highest figure possible for filling systems on the market. Suddenly, FLEXSPEED made it possible to fill over 4000 cylinders per hour on a single filling carrousel.
Not everyone knows this, but FLEXSPEED was actually inspired by the beverage industry. Like bottles on beverage filling systems, cylinders on a FLEXSPEED never stand still from the moment they enter to the moment they exit. They are weighed at several points in between to ensure excellent filling accuracy.
In the grand scope of things, 10 years may not be a long time, but FLEXSPEED has still managed to shift the perception of what defines high-capacity LPG filling in that time. We look forward to seeing what the future will bring. Happy birthday, FLEXSPEED!
