About

 How can you precisely measure the amout of gas in a cylinder?

Shaking a cylinder, knocking on it or simply holding a horseshoe won't do. You'd like to know for sure, won't you? When having a gas cylinder nearby, you worry that there might be a gas leak. You keep wishing that horseshoe would do its magic and you'd be able to relax. It's ok. You can drop a horseshoe. Don't worry: we have build the Gas Scale.

WARNING: it may happen, that you recognize yourself requiring that kind of gadget.

By using Gas Sale you save time, your energy and you have no concern. Gas Scale is a product that makes your everyday life simple and carefree. From now on you don’t have to worry about gas, rather stay focused on fun.

Gas Scale comes with a specially designed application for smartphones. It has a wireless connection with smartphone via Bluetooth. Thanks to a Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy technology this is not just easy, but also friendly to both Gas Scale and smartphone battery life.

Mobile application for iOS and Android devices.

The app keeps track of your gas consumption over time and provides you with information about remaining amount of gas in the cylinder. This is done by comparing current Gas Scale data with parameters of a cylinder in-use (i.e. tara weight). The tara weight can be entered in the app at first connection.

Also, app prediction algorithm informs you about estimated time of running out of gas. This is a lifesaver feature: you will always be prepared before running out of gas.

The app can be used with as many Gas Scales as you like. Each of them can be configured differently and tagged with a friendly name, so they can be easily distinguished.

And hey, there is more than that. App will alert you with visual and sound notification when your Gas Scale detects a gas leak or when the gas level in a cylinder is low.

Moreover, your Gas Scale integrated alerting unit can be configured in order to be used for gas leak detection. You can configure interval of alerting, volume and type of alarm on the app. Moreover, the alarm will be set automatically even when your Gas Scale is not connected with your smartphone since the alarm unit is integrated in the Gas Scale.

  • requirements for Mobile application: Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE/Bluetooth LE) enabled Android devices (running version 4.3 or later) and iOS devices (running version 5.0 or later).

Gas scale has an in-built leakage detector. Its usage is warmly recommended for closed spaces. We know that gas is heavier than air so if there is a leak, the gas will stay close to the ground.

The leakage will be then quickly detected since the Gas Scale is installed under the gas cylinder on the floor. Don't worry about the gas, just be safe.

Risks and challenges

+++ MANUFACTURING
In the past two years of intensive work on this project we had realized that everything must be done before campaign. Now we are prepared to begin the full-time manufacturing. We can predict a lot of things for the future, but we think that testing is very important and primary, so we'll spend valuable time for various additional tests before shipping. We will push ourselves to the limits to fullfill our goal in time.

+++ SHIPPING
In course of two years we learned that shipping products around the world is time consuming; in some cases it could lasts as long as manufacturing process. This is the worst case scenario, but we should mention it, even as a plan D.

+++ WARRANTY
We will provide our product with standard guarantee of 12 months.
