In this blog, we’ll explore the various uses for gas across industries that need it every day.

What Can Nitrogen Gas Be Used For?

Nitrogen is the standard medium for contamination-free storage as it is relatively inert. This gas can be both isolated and purified at a low cost and is regularly used in the air conditioning and refrigeration industry to absorb moisture while pipes are being repaired.

There are many potential customers for our stockists supplying nitrogen, including engineers, electronics manufacturers and those who work in the motor industry or with pharmaceuticals.

When mixed with CO2, nitrogen can be used to preserve the freshness of packaged or bulk foods. Pure nitrogen can also be used as a food additive and is labelled with the E number E941 in the European Union.

Supplying Oxygen and Nitrogen for Laser Cutting

Both nitrogen and oxygen can be used for laser cutting by removing the liquidised material from its counterpart with great force. When supplying either gas, it’s important to consider the materials and metals that your customer is using, especially as oxygen applied at too high a force, reacts with the metal to generate unwanted heat and, often, burning.

Nitrogen is a great choice for laser cutting as it doesn’t react with metal, though it does need a higher-powered laser to ensure clean cuts.

 The Uses for CO2 Gas

There are many uses for CO2 gas, including promoting the growth of plants in greenhouses, carbonating drinks, foaming rubber and plastics, and as a refrigerant to keep food cool.

Our CO2 gas is regularly used at paintball venues, for multi-cylinder paintball tank filling, producing 1056 shots per kilogram of CO2. We can provide paintball CO2 tanks in 1.5kg bottles, up to 34kg tanks.

Beer gas is often made from carbon dioxide, nitrogen, or a mix of both. So, by introducing carbon dioxide cylinders to your stock list, you can increase your supply chain.

Our cellar mix gas bottles are available in a variety of sizes containing 30% CO2 / 70% Nitrogen or 60% CO2 / 40% Nitrogen. The mixture of nitrogen and CO2 helps improve the flavour and lifespan of beer and soft drinks. We’d recommend supplying up to 6.35kg bottles for home bars and up to 35kg for those who use them more frequently.

How Can You Supply MIG and TIG Welding Gas?

Welding gas is necessary for any type of metal welding, so it’s important for local companies to find a reliable stockist they trust.

Our high-quality welding gas products are popular with customers across wholesale and B2B, especially in engineering, farming and car/motor businesses.

MIG welding gas and TIG welding gas can be sold directly to the public in a range of sizes that are portable and easy to store. This makes our gas perfect for construction site workers, air conditioning engineers and all small site welding work. There is also a high demand for welding gas in manufacturing plants, including the motor vehicle industry.

The basic gas used for MIG welding is argon, but both argon and helium mixtures can be used for all welding grades. No matter what your customer needs, we can supply you with gas in a variety of sizes, from 20L trade welding gas cylinders to 9L hobby welding gas cylinders.
