Medical Mixed Gases

Medical Mixed Gases

A range of multi-component products developed for specific applications such as welding or for the food industry

We know that a single pure gas is not always what your application needs. That’s why our experienced chemists and engineers work hard to prepare and certify our line of specialty gas mixtures. And through our experience, we have developed a series of purification techniques to remove critical impurities in our blends to make them as effective and stable as possible.

Gas blending is the process of mixing gases for a specific purpose where the composition of the resulting mixture is specified and controlled. A wide range of applications include scientific and industrial processes, food production and storage and breathing gases.

Gas mixtures are usually specified in terms of molar gas fraction (which is closely approximated by volumetric gas fraction for many permanent gases): by percentage, parts per thousand or parts per million. Volumetric gas fraction converts trivially to partial pressure ratio, following Dalton’s law of partial pressures. Partial pressure blending at constant temperature is computationally simple, and pressure measurement is relatively inexpensive, but maintaining constant temperature during pressure changes requires significant delays for temperature equalization. Blending by mass fraction is unaffected by temperature variation during the process, but requires accurate measurement of mass or weight, and calculation of constituent masses from the specified molar ratio. Both partial pressure and mass fraction blending are used in practice.

From oxygen, nitrogen, argon, helium, and hydrogen to medical and specialty gases to welding and cutting gases, Islam Oxygen enables customers in a myriad of industries to improve their environmental performance, product quality, and productivity.

Gas Mixtures are a wide and diverse group of products developed for use in specific industries.

Food gas mixtures are used to delay the deterioration of packaged food by substituting the air in the package with a protective gas mixture.

Different gas mixtures are used to improve the characteristic of many beverages from wine to beer and soft drinks.

In manufacturing a wide range of gas mixtures are used for welding and cutting as well as for laser processing.

Gas Mixtures are either mixed continuously on site from pure gases or they can be supplied premixed products in a range of package sizes.
