Argon (Ar) is a colourless, odourless, non-reactive, inert gas. In high concentrations, it has an asphyxiating effect. As argon is an atmospheric gas (0.93% vol.), it is generally sourced by separating air. Argon is produced at our air separation plant along with Oxygen and Nitrogen.
Argon has many different applications in many industries. The most common one is as a shielding gas for arc welding – either in pure form or as part of various mixtures. It is one of the main gases used in filling mixtures for incandescent (filament) lamps, phosphorescent tubes and thyratron radio tubes. Argon is also widely used in laser technology and in the labs.
We provide argon in both liquid and gaseous form. The argon gas is delivered by 40L, 50L cylinders and pallets or refilled in the refilling station in the factory. The liquid argon is distributed by LGC, ISO tank or pumped directly at the factory.
