Cryogenic Liquids

Advanced Gases carries a variety of cryogenic gases, liquid nitrogen, liquid oxygen, liquid argon and finally carbon dioxide.

These gases are among some of the more abundant gases the world contains, other liquefied gases such as Neon, Krypton or Xenon are considered rare and are only 0.1% of the atmosphere. By comparison, nitrogen is 78% of the atmosphere and Oxygen is 21%.

We have used our expertise to distribute cryogenic gases in all shapes and sizes, from portable to fixed micro bulk and bulk cryogenic tanks. Since 1845 people have continued to find new uses for liquified gases. Liquid Hydrogen and oxygen are used as the primary propellant for modern rocket ships and has been hailed as the fuel of the future by many news organizations and people familiar with its capabilities to transform the fuel economy.

Aside from all the potential cryogenics have as a fuel, that is still something that has yet to become popularized. Other liquified gases have already revolutionized the way we live. Every potato chip bag is filled with nitrogen, every soda contains carbon dioxide, all wine is typically fermented with argon. If you are a brewery, chances are you’ll be using carbon dioxide. If you need something cut, liquid oxygen gives you extended duration cutting with oxyfuel or exothermic cutting.

When the Higgs Boson was discovered in 2012, it was discovered using the world’s largest hadron collider. This LHC as they call it, uses massive amounts of liquified helium, which is -452 degrees below 0. This cryogenic gas is the coldest liquid substance on the planet. Liquified helium is used in MRI machines in hospitals and functions as a coolant for electromagnets.

An undated handout graphic distributed on July 4, 2012 by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva shows a representation of traces of traces of a proton-proton collision measured in the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experience in the search for the Higgs boson.

If you are considering or already use cryogenic services, or liquefied gas withdrawal and need advice or want a quote please reach out to us, we would be more than happy to help you in any way we can.
