Gas Supply Options

Gas supply begins with choosing the right supply mode (gas cylinders, liquid cylinders, micro-bulk, or bulk supply) to best meet current as well as future expansion needs. But it does not end there. 

As your needs evolve, your gas supply requirements might change. You need a gas supply partner that can make recommendations in your best interests, and can deliver on your requirements, whatever they are.

Depending upon your current operation, we can supply high purity gases and gas mixtures:

  • In cylinders and cylinder banks ("six-packs" and "twelve-packs" supplied in cradles)
    • For smaller scale requirements and/or intermittent operation
    • Cylinder banks can be combined with switchover manifolds to prevent gas run-out during an expensive part build
  • In liquid cylinders (liquid argon) with up to 230L argonargon dewar
    • For larger scale production
    • For facilities with multiple processes and medium argon demand
  • Micro-bulk and bulk delivery (liquid argon delivered to onsite vessel by tanker truck)
    • For continuous operation of multiple machines, multiple production shifts, or for supply of facilities requiring larger gas consumption 
    • A variety types and sizes of gas vessels and liquid containers are available to address any need

MATHESON helps you assess your requirements, and then offers choices of suitable solutions - including cost-benefit information and return on investment (ROI) calculations.


Gas Optimization and Certification

MATHESON offers a comprehensive range of services and products to help our customers address concerns for quality, traceability, or process compliance.

We can design, install, and startup specialized systems for gas supply and/or recycling. We supply you with (or alternatively, we perform) protocols for maintenance and performance certification.

Gas product certification and traceability documentation is also available.


Gas Based Solutions

Additive Manufacturing Process Optimization can often be addressed by:

  • Analysis of gas purity and composition
  • Remediation of issues associated with purity, moisture content, and gas leaks
  • Development and optimization of gas mixture composition

As "the Gas Professionals," determination of gas based solutions is "in our DNA."
