Developments in CO2 production technology Subscription
Developments in CO2 production technology are under close scrutinty, in an interview with Union Engineering’s Michael Mortensen and Jan Poulsen.
An introduction to...PSA medical oxygen generators Subscription
Oxygen in the medical field has traditionally been produced centrally and then distributed in liquid form, or as a gas via cylinders, to the customer. An alternative and increasingly popular means of oxygen generation exists in the medical market, however, in the form of pressure swing adsorption (PSA).
An introduction to...Steam methane reformers Subscription
Hydrogen is widely used in the petroleum refining industry to remove impurities found in crude oil such as sulfur, olefins and aromatics to meet product fuels specifications. Removing these impurities allows fuels to burn cleaner and refineries to turn a lower quality crude oil into a profitable product that meets increasing environmental specifications.
An introduction to...Dry ice cleaning Subscription
Dry ice (CO2) cleaning is an efficient and cost-effective way for industries to maximise production capability and quality. Dry ice cleaning uses recycled CO2 in the form of solid dry ice particles that are transported by high-velocity airflow to remove contaminates from surfaces.
Regional markets: Focus on Russia Subscription

This month’s gas report looks to Gasco Affiliates, LLC, a specialist calibration gas company, for an informed insight into the precise science that is, calibration gases.
Dry ice – A significance that’s far from subliminal Subscription
Dry ice comes in many forms, from pellets to slices, and serves a range of applications, from standard refrigeration to revolutionary blast cleaning – as gasworld reveals.
Efficient transport modes for the fracking industry Subscription
Fracking and natural gas have been such common words in recent forums and the gas receptacle world has not been left out. If anything, both the gas cylinder and automotive industries have been preparing for this ‘green’ fuel alternative for several decades and have considered not only the output post the fracking process – compressed natural gas (CNG) – but also hydrogen as potential future fuels.
Cryogenic valves for an evolving LNG industry Subscription
As one of the first cryogenic service providers to enter the LNG industry, it’s well over a decade since Herose started supplying valves for LNG applications.
NOXERIOR, formerly known as IGS Italia, focuses on all aspects of the non-cryogenic onsite generation of nitrogen and oxygen by means of either PSA or hollow-fibre membrane technology. Innovative design and superior quality, combined with creative individual solutions to maximise the economical benefits for the end-user, make gas generators from NOXERIOR the preferred solution for many companies.
Olivo – Saving energy and costs in logistics Subscription
There is an alternative to the obvious use of refrigerated vehicles for temperature sensitive goods – portable, insulated and/or refrigerated containers. With Olivo containers, there is an added benefit that the refrigeration systems used are totally silent – ideal for ‘out-of-hours’ deliveries.
