Industrial Gases

Industrial gases are produced by the chemical industry and are gases widely used in industry. Gases sold by industrial gas companies include compound gases, hydrocarbon gases and gas mixtures and the uses of industrial gases are very diverse. The main gases used in industry are acetylene, oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, argon, hydrogen and helium. These are supplied both on small or large scales, through pipelines or in smaller cylinders. Industrial gases are used in a variety of industries, including larger corporate businesses such as petrochemicals, steelmaking, oil and gas, food, water, medicine, oil and gas along with smaller retailers who may supply camping gas or helium for balloons.

  1. Acetylene
    - 0 Suppliers 0 Products

    Acetylene is a chemical compound with a chemical formula of C2H2 making it a hydrocarbon and the simplest alkyne. The colourless gas is commercially used as a fuel, as a chemical building block, or in the production of plastics.

  2. Argon
    - 1 Supplier 5 Products

    Argon is the world’s third most radiant gas and is in group 18 in the periodic table and is produced industrially by the fractional distillation of liquid air.

  3. Carbon Dioxide
    - 0 Suppliers 2 Products

    Carbon Dioxide is vital to life on earth and forms part of the Carbon cycle. It is a clear, odourless gas existing naturally as a trace gas. Natural sources of carbon dioxide include volcanoes, hot springs, geysers and carbonate rocks. Carbon Dioxide occurs naturally in groundwater, rivers, and lakes, in ice caps and glaciers and also in seawater.

  4. Compressed Air
    - 1 Supplier 4,937 Products

    Compressed air has great potential as a clear and inexpensive energy source, so much so – it’s being explored as a potential to fossil sources. Because of this, it’s considered the 4th utility after electricity, natural gas and water.

  5. Helium
    - 0 Suppliers 0 Products

    Helium has many industrial and recreational uses, the most commonly known being the inflation of balloons and airships. However, the world’s largest use of liquid helium is used in cryogenics in the cooling of superconducting magnets, with the main commercial application being in MRI scanner.

  6. Hydrogen
    - 0 Suppliers 0 Products

    Hydrogen is a gas that is colourless, odourless, tasteless, non-toxic, non-metallic, and highly combustible. It is commonly used in fossil fuel processes, ammonia production and in the fertiliser market. Hydrogen is also used as a coolant in power stations and as an energy carrier.

  7. Nitrogen
    - 1 Supplier 4 Products

    Nitrogen is a clear and odourless gas (when at room temperatures). It is commonly used in used in aircraft fuel systems, the manufacturing of stainless steel, and to inflate race-car and aircraft tyres. It is also used in the manufacturing of major pharmaceuticals (including antibiotics) and fertilisers.

  8. Oxygen
    - 0 Suppliers 0 Products

    Oxygen is essential to life and is inhaled through breathing. Because of this, oxygen gas is common in medical processes as well as in the space industry, through space suits. It is a naturally occurring gas, continually replenished by photosynthesis.

  9. Propane
    - 1 Supplier 11 Products

    Propane is a by-product of natural gas processing and petroleum refining. It is available in a liquid form, generally stored in steel cylinders and is used in barbecues and portable stoves, locomotives, buses, forklifts, taxis and ice resurfacing machines.
