About Our Company
Luxfer-GTM Technologies is based in Berkeley, California and is a joint venture between Luxfer Gas Cylinders and GTM Technologies. As one of the first companies to offer composite cylinder gas transports in the USA and Asia, we have become a leader in the industry as one of the largest gas transport module manufactures in the world. Our purpose is to provide customized solutions for service industries, helping them store and transport gases in the safest, lightest and most reliable way.
Our customized light weight, high capacity tube trailers range from 10’-50’ in length and feature systems for pressure regulation and mobile refueling. The systems we offer feature G-Stor Pro Type III cylinders that combine the advantages and integrity of aluminum liners and the strength of carbon fiber, far exceeding existing steel tube trailer technology. These cylinders are lightweight, high-pressure (3,600psig), U.S. DOT approved and packaged in the most secure way to ensure safe delivery.

Overview of Gas Transportation Modules
Luxfer-GTM Technologies has designed a complete line of Gas Transportation Modules or GTMs for the storage and transportation of compressed gases. Configured around lightweight, Type III composite cylinders, our GTM products can store gases up to 3600 psi (248 bar). GTMs can be configured for placement into a wide variety of packages, including standard shipping containers, small tube trailers, pods or racks for small trucks.
There are many possible configurations. The majority of our GTMs use a cylinder with a 15.9 inch (40.4 cm) diameter that can be configured in rows of up to 6 cylinders. A 10′ pod uses a 108 inch (274.3 cm) long cylinder in 5 cylinders across by 6 cylinders high (or 5×6). A 20 foot ISO container is 5x6x2. A small truck, however, may use the 120 inch (304.8 cm) long tube in a 4×3 or 4×4 configuration.
In the US, Luxfer-GTM manufactures tube trailers with cylinders approved for use under Special Permit 15136 issued by the US Dept. of Transportation. We also use cylinders that meet the requirements of ANSI/CSA NGV 2, US DOT FMVSS 304, CAN/CSA B51, TC 301.2, METI-KHK, ISO 11439 and ECE R110. The cylinders have also been approved for storage and transportation of CNG in Australia, Japan, Indonesia, Mexico and Vietnam. In addition, Transport Canada has approved our GTMs for domestic use as well.
So pick your location, your mode of transportation and packaging interest, and we can make the GTM suitable for your application.
