Industrial gases belong to a group of gases that are commercially manufactured and sold for uses in other applications. These gases are mainly used in industrial processes, such as steelmaking, oil refining, medical applications, fertiliser, semiconductors…etc. They may be both organic and inorganic, are produced by extraction from the air by a process of separation or are produced by chemical synthesis, and will take various forms such as compressed, liquid, or solid.

The following Industrial Gases are commonly requested to be analysed and checked for impurities:

 Helium (He)
   Argon (Ar)
Nitrogen (N2)
 Hydrogen (H2)
  Oxygen (O2) Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

The following is a list of some of the impurities that can be expected:

Ne, H2, Ar/O2, N2, CH4, CO, CO2, N2O, Kr, Xe, C2H2, C2H6, C2H4, C3, C4, C2

Other impurities are also possible, depending on the sample gas.

The AGC Instruments solution will allow you to measure Impurities from % to ppb levels with ease.

Other Trace Analysers are also applicable depending on your application.
