Oxygen is essential to many industries. In the chemical industry, industrial grade oxygen is used to improve a large number of petrochemical processes. Oxygen is used in metal fabrication applications such as smelting, cutting and welding. Oxygen increases efficiency in a number of processes by reducing the amount of fuel used and decreasing carbon dioxide emissions.
In the healthcare industry, medical oxygen is used to treat respiratory insufficiencies, carbon monoxide poisoning and for resuscitation. In laboratories, ALPHAGAZ™ 1 oxygen provides 99.999% purity and is used as a bleaching agent, a combustible for flame detectors, an oxidizing agent and for silicon oxidation in semiconductor manufacturing. When your analytic and laboratory application is critical and requires ultra-high-purity oxygen, ALPHAGAZ 2’s 99.9995% pure oxygen is perfect. Both ALPHAGAZ grades of oxygen come in compressed gas cylinders equipped with open caps and SMARTOP™ valves.
Oxygen is available as a component in many gas mixtures. Oxygen in Nitrogen gas mixtures are used as span gas calibration mixtures in engine emissions testing in the automotive industry. These gas mixtures are ISO 17025 accredited and Part 86 compliant. Oxygen gas mixtures are also used in environmental, industrial hygiene and safety and laboratory applications.
