Specialty Gas Industry News and articles from Weiler Welding and PurityPlus®

Which Comes First, the Food … or the Gas?

Nitrogen does food good. Here are some of the most common ways the food and beverage industry makes use of this gas as a food preserver and a food and beverage enhancer.

PurityPlus® Applied: CO2 for Dayton-area Medical Research Involving CO2 Incubators

CO2 incubators are vital tools in medical research. They’re used to hold cell cultures that must be cultivated in as sterile an environment as possible. Different kinds of CO2 incubators ward off contamination in the incubation chamber by different means, depending on the sort of cells being observed. Most often CO2 incubators are used in stem cell therapy, regenerative medicine, and plastic surgery.

Guaranteeing Top-Quality Gases for Gas Chromatography

The carrier gases needed in gas chromatography, aside from having to be either inert or unreactive, must be at least 99.995% pure – higher, occasionally! And that’s where Weiler Welding proves invaluable. Okay, so we haven’t existed as long as gas chromatography. But, as a highly regarded PurityPlus® partner producer-distributor, we’ve been furnishing chemical researchers and various industries with carrier gases of the utmost purity feasible for years now. We guarantee it, too.
