Bespoke Gas Filling Solution for Slenderpane from Inagas

by | Mar 27, 2024 | Sealants & Sealed Units

Inagas, manual gas filling and testing equipment for the IGU market has been working with longstanding customer, Slenderpane to develop a bespoke gas filling machine, able to satisfy their production requirements.  As specialists in slimline unit production for the heritage market, Slenderpane was looking for gas filling technology able to keep pace with their complex offering – Argon, Krypton and mixed gas filled IGUs.

Dave Parker, general manager at Slenderpane explains: “All of our units are handmade, to the highest quality with attention to detail throughout the entire process. A lot of companies that manufacture slimline units, do so using standard argon gas filling.  But we know that our customers don’t always want the same thing. Some will be focussed on the lowest U-Value whilst others have cost as a key consideration.  By manufacturing our units using Argon, Krypton and a mixed gases, we are able to satisfy every individual requirement.  

“Using the latest technology enables us to be consistent with our high quality. We have had gas fillers from Inagas previously, but this upgraded version is a two line machine, with the Smart Start technology, which allows us to start and stop the fill at the unit as opposed to the machine.  It’s simple to use with good functionality and allows us to offer that product flexibility, which our customers appreciate.  

“Throughout the development and installation, Inagas has always been on the end of the phone should we have needed them, able to problem solve and get things right.  The fact they worked with us on an individual basis in order to create something bespoke to our needs means this latest investment in gas filling technology will support our production requirements into the future.”

Chris Kemp, sales director at Inagas, continues: “Slenderpane has been an Inagas customer for almost 15 years, so when they approached us with their unique gas filling requirements, we wanted to be able to come up with a solution.  Working closely with them, we were able to develop a bespoke piece of technology to suit their production needs.

“The machine itself incorporates elements of our Interfill KX, Multifill-2 and Smartfill range and enables Slenderpane to change the gas being used as well as the flow rate and fill method in order to produce the exact specification IGU their customers need.   It’s been interesting for us to work with them on this hybrid solution and we are delighted we successfully met the brief.”
