Energy

The greatest use of gases in the energy sector is air. This is due to cheapness, air availability, ease of creation, maintenance and repair of airborne electrical insulation systems, the possibility of visual inspection. Objects that use air as electrical insulation are power lines, open switchgears, air switches, etc. Other technical gases are also used in the power industry, depending on the technological processes used.

Iron and Steel Industry

The metallurgical industry is the main consumer of industrial gases. As a rule, large amounts of oxygen, nitrogen and argon are used in ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy. Oxygen is used to heat and enhance reactions in combustion processes in the production of steel and iron, to reduce emissions of pollutants in the exhaust gases. Argon is used for cleaning, homogenizing and degassing in steel production. Nitrogen and argon are widely used as inert gases in non-ferrous metallurgy. In the production of ferrous and non-ferrous metals consumed the main amount of compressed oxygen. This gas is necessary in the production of ferroalloys, iron and steel, for the intensification of roasting of raw materials and the smelting of a number of non-ferrous metals (zinc, lead, nickel, etc.).

Mechanical Engineering



The main types of technological processes in which industrial gases are used in mechanical engineering and metalworking are thermal cutting and welding. Natural gas is also used for heating rolling, forging, thermal and smelting furnaces and dryers.

Glass Industry

In today's competitive environment, manufacturers are interested in making glass production the most economical, as well as quality and reliable. For this purpose, technical gases are finding more and more widespread use in the glass industry, i.e. chemical compounds in gaseous or liquefied form, obtained artificially by the separation of atmospheric air, release from hydrocarbons or other chemical methods. For the most efficient operation of glass production, a high-quality supply of industrial gases for industrial processes is necessary.

Oil and Gas Industry

Considering the properties of nitrogen and oxygen, their application in the oil and gas industry is also obvious. At the same time, the main product of air separation consumed by enterprises of this industry is nitrogen. This is due to the fact that nitrogen is used at all stages of production, from mining to processing and transportation. Nitrogen is used in the extraction of oil and gas to maintain intra-layer pressure and increase production of the product. This inert gas is widely used to create an inert cushion in order to ensure explosion and fire safety in process tanks, as well as during loading and unloading operations. Oxygen enterprises in the oil and gas industry consume at the processing stage.

Electronics, Microelectronics, Instrument Engineering


The development and production processes of nanophotonic products, computer storage devices, as well as technologies widely used in gas epitaxy and lithography in the production of ultra-large integrated circuits and other active elements of nanoelectronics, require the use of ultra-pure (electronic) gases. In nanotechnology, ultrapure nitrogen, helium, hydrogen, krypton, ammonia, xenon and some other gases and various gas mixtures produced on their basis are actively used. For the production and research of many types of nanoobjects, ultra low temperatures are needed, which are impossible to obtain without the use of liquid helium. Even in a relatively typical production process, up to forty different gases can be used.

Food Industry

Strict customer requirements for purchased fresh products are a powerful argument for the development of new methods to increase the shelf life of various products, wherever preservatives and artificial additives would not be used. Now for packing different foods use gases such as oxygen, argon, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and various gas mixtures. Food gas mixtures are used for packaging vegetables, fruits, confectionery, as well as other products, including meat series . This allows you to significantly increase their shelf life. Quite often use a two-component food gas mixture containing nitrogen and carbon dioxide. Moreover, if nitrogen is valuable, first of all, by its inertness, then carbon dioxide has, in particular, a bactericidal effect.

Medical Industry

One of the rapidly developing areas of modern medicine is the use of xenon in the prevention and treatment of human diseases. It is used as an anesthetic for surgical operations, and for examinations of the brain. Xenon absorbs X-rays and helps to find the places of damage. At the same time, it is completely harmless. Studies are being conducted to use xenon as a medicine. Liquid nitrogen is used in medicine for storing a variety of biological materials at low temperatures, as well as in cryosurgery. High purity nitrogen gas or CZG nitrogen (calibration zero gas) is used as a carrier gas for analytical equipment. Liquid helium is the main refrigerant for medical tomographs.

Aviation and Space Industry

It is difficult to overestimate the role of industrial gases in aviation and astronautics. Industrial gases in these industries have different applications. Some, such as propane, hydrogen or methane, are used as fuel. Chemical reactions, the combustion of fuel gases in engines raise heavy rockets and supersonic aircraft above the ground. They support the tremendous speeds with which these vehicles fly. Other gases are designed to make not only possible, but also the most comfortable the existence of the human body in environments unusual for him. In these cases, use oxygen, nitrogen or helium. They are part of the respiratory mixtures. Without the use of such mixtures, it is impossible to use the space suit or create a working, safe and comfortable atmosphere inside the spacecraft.

Lighting technologies

Modern lighting technology is impossible without inert gases. In most types and designs of various light sources, their presence is detected. In some lamps, noble gases create an inert protective environment. In others, under the influence of electrical discharges produce a beautiful color glow. When passing electrical discharges in the layers of different noble gases, a different color glow arises. The hue of the glow depends on the properties of the gas itself and on the conditions additionally applied to it.

Automobile Industry

Speaking about the fields of application of technical gases, it is impossible not to mention the automotive industry. Technical gases have the broadest application in modern automotive industry. They are necessary for heat treatment, cutting and welding of metals, there are special gases that are necessary for monitoring emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere. Most drivers are switching to a new service — filling the tire with gas that has better properties and stability than regular air. Gas filling tires have long been used for racing cars and for aircraft landing gear.

Building Industry

Modern construction can not do without the use of technical gases. Working with metal structures: welding and cutting. Before turning into metal structures, for example, metal, such as a framework for future reinforced concrete, metal must be carefully cut and welded reliably. To do this, and apply various types of gas cutting and welding. To prevent the danger of a catastrophe, it is necessary to make concrete hardening fast and uniform. For this, use cooling it with liquid nitrogen or carbon dioxide.
