All gas cylinder purchases are to go through Materials Management Gas Services per ASU policy PUR 702.
All cylinders, except disposable lecture bottles, have a monthly rental fee due on the first of each month. Unless written notification with the updated account information is given to Gas Services, the cylinder rental fee or demurrage will be charged to the cost center and program, grant, gift or project provided on the requisition. Some specialty gases have higher rental fees. Before ordering a cylinder, Gas Services will notify the purchaser of any additional fees.
Gas Services inventories a selection of regulators, LN2 parts and cylinder carts within FMS. Gas Services does not stock connectors, tubing and fittings.
The U.S. Department of Transportation requires a cylinder cap to transport. Replacement cylinder caps are available in FMS. Monthly cylinder demurrage charges will continue to bill until the cylinder is transportable.
