March 19, 2020

TVC would like to reassure our customers that we have implemented contingency measures to protect the health and safety of our staff and to enable us to continue operating in this uncertain climate.

Whilst all staff will remain working and TVC will be open at normal times, due to current arrangements there may be a delay in response to your enquiry. This will be kept to a minimum.

We will continue to operate under the current arrangements and will update our clients to any changes in the coming weeks.

All of us here at TVC wish our clients, suppliers, distributors and staff the best during these troubling times.

The Specification states required levels were Oxygen Content 20ppm Max or Moisture 125ppm Max (-40°C Dewpoint) to be measured at the Torch Head after any Gas Bottle Exchange and/or Bulk Gas Delivery.
