Use of argon and liquid argon in various industries
Argon is a widely used industrial gas, which is often used in welding operations such as special alloys and in the production of light bulbs and lasers. As an inert gas, argon can provide an oxygen-free and nitrogen-free environment for the heat treatment process.
Argon can be used with other gases to weld automotive parts, frames, mufflers and other automotive parts. It can provide an oxygen-free and nitrogen-free environment for the annealing process, and is also an important part of airbags.
Argon suppresses oxidation during processing, thereby maintaining temperature and composition stability. It can also remove carbon monoxide and reduce chromium loss during the refining of argon-oxygen decarburized stainless steel.
Argon is an inert protective atmosphere that enhances the arc stability and characteristics of gas-shielded metal arc welding. In addition, argon is the main shielding gas for tungsten arc welding (GTAW) processes.
Argon and liquid argon (AR) supply methods: cylinders, storage tanks, small cylinders and dewar containers
For smaller and more specialized applications, Praxair supplies high-pressure steel cylinders for argon supply, and liquid argon through Dewar bottles of various sizes.
Praxair's bulk liquid delivery system is equipped with argon storage tanks of various sizes according to your on-site operation conditions. It also provides small on-site gas supply “buy-guaranteed” as an alternative to steel or Dewar cylinders.
Praxair's advanced pipeline operation can realize uninterrupted supply of argon according to the application conditions, which is ideal for customers with large gas consumption.
