© Reuse this Cadac, a division of MTM Trading, was founded in 1951 and started the manufacture of portable liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cylinders, lamps, cookers, stoves, heaters and barbeque equipment in 1957.

Today, the company employs 300 people in a modern factory of 20 000 m2, and turns over R150-million a year.

Engineering News visited the company’s industrial LPG cylinder-manufacturing plant in Roodepoort, where it produces 9 kg, 14 kg, 19 kg and 48 kg cylinders for Southern African oil companies, specialised cylinders for Chubb Fire, in the UK, and small acetylene cylinders.

As a result of a R15-million expansion programme, which is still under way, the operation has increased production to 800 industrial cylinders a day in a single shift, and plans to increase this number to 1 000.

Among the latest manufacturing equipment to be installed are a barrel-rolling machine and barrel-welding machine, industrial gas-fired furnace, zinc spray booth, baked-enamel-paint plant, hydraulic pressure testing units and a shroud-welding machine, all fully automated.

A longitudinal welder is yet to be installed.

The operation is ISO 9001-approved, with all cylinders and appliances approved by the South African Bureau of Standards.
