The critical link in specialty gas supply? Subscription
Managing Director Pavel Perlov discusses the ever-increasing product portfolio of electronic specialty and rare gases at Electronic Fluorocarbons – and how this ensures the company maintains ‘the critical link’ between scientific technologies and product applications, in an interview with gasworld magazine.
An introduction to...Safety hoses Subscription
When incompatible parts are used together and hoses come loose from their fittings, the results can be devastating on workers and the surrounding environment. Add a confined space to the mix, and it can become fatal. In fact, a number of tragic incidents over recent months have highlighted just how important safety is when installing and maintaining hoses.
An introduction to...PSA technologies Subscription
PSA technology relies on a process called adsorption, which is the tendency of gases to be drawn to solid surfaces when subjected to high pressure. Different surfaces attract different gases more strongly, meaning target-rich gases can be attained by selecting the most suitable material.
An introduction to...Acetylene burner technology Subscription
Lindoflamm acetylene burners are a global product introudced out of Germany by parent company Linde Gases and were developed in response to an increasing demand in the global fabrication industry for pre-heating prior to the welding process.
Regional markets: Focus on global update Subscription
Midway through 2014 and the global industrial gases industry is in the midst of a gradually improving business environment. Despite being offset in some areas by external variables such as energy pricing, weather systems and political landscapes, higher underlying volumes appear to be a common theme across the recent financial releases of the industry’s major players.
Natural gas – Essential, everyday but unpredictable Subscription

Calibration gases – The precision genre 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.
