Argon

Argon is one of the most common carrier gases in gas chromatography. Argon is used as a carrier gas in sputtering, plasma etching and ion implantations, and as a blanket atmosphere in crystalgrowth.*Due to market variability and unique gas requirements, we may not be able to provide a fixed pricelist. We warmly invite you to share your gas quantity and packaging requirements, enabling us to tailor a quote for you.

Process

The most common source of argon is an air separation plant. Air contains approx. 0.93% (vol.) argon. A crude argon stream containing up to 5% oxygen is removed from the main air separation column via a secondary (“side-arm”) column. The crude argon is then further purified to produce the various commercial grades required. Argon may also be recovered from the exhaust stream of certain ammonia plants.

Applications
  • Electrical Welding
    Electrical Welding

    One of the most common application of argon, either pure or in various mixtures, is as a shielding gas for arc welding.

  • Glass
    Glass

    Argon is used as an insulation gas in high-efficiency multi-pane windows to improve thermal insulation.

  • Steel
    Steel

    Argon is also used in the iron and steel industry to prevent oxidation of molten metals and alloys and for degassing and desulphurization of molten steel and iron baths.

  • Medical
    Medical

    The pharmaceutical industry uses argon to displace oxygen in the top of intravenous drug containers, extending product shelf-life. Liquid argon is used in cryosurgery e.g., cryoablation to destroy cancer cells.

  • Wines
    Wines

    Argon is used for wine preservation to eliminate air by the heavier argon, to prevent oxidation and extend the product quality for opened bottles and barrels.

  • Metal Treating
    Metal Treating

    Argon is used, often in a mixture with hydrogen, as a protective atmosphere for the heat treatment of certain metals, particularly those which are susceptible to nitriding when treated in a nitrogen-based atmosphere. This includes stainless steels and many different specialized and there-fore small-scale applications.

Frequently Asked Question
  • What is the purity of your argon gas? Which industries do you generally supply to?

    We provide high-purity argon gas, with the highest purity reaching 6N (99.9999%). Our customers are in industries such as electronic semiconductors, medical, and research, requiring stable and continuous supply with a high volume of gas demand.

  • What is the minimum order quantity (MOQ) for your argon gas?

    Our argon typically has an MOQ of around 100 cylinders. Single cylinder sales are not accepted.

  • Can your argon gas be used in welding and metal processing industries?

    Certainly. Generally, high-purity gases can be suitable for industries with lower purity requirements, and the purity needed for welding and metal processing industries is not extremely high. However, there is a significant cost difference between high-purity and lower-purity gases, and cost is a crucial factor when choosing the gas that best fits one's needs.

  • Can you provide liquid argon?

    Certainly. However, due to the extremely low boiling point of liquid argon, which is -195.8 degrees Celsius (-320.4 degrees Fahrenheit), additional considerations for evaporation need to be taken into account during long-distance transportation.

  • Can you provide cylinders/dewars/tanks/tube trailers for argon gas?

    We are a specialized gas supplier, and gases are our primary products. Generally, we can supply argon in cylinders or dewars along with the argon itself. We also accept customers' tanks or tube trailers for filling at our facility but do not sell any tanks or tube trailers.
