At the recent PITTCON event, Airgas held technical suite sessions and unveiled its new specialty gas reference guide.

The largest distributor of industrial, medical, and specialty gases, and hardgoods, such as welding equipment and supplies, attended the Pittsburgh conference in Chicago earlier this month.

It took with it its new multi-edition Specialty Gases and Equipment Reference Guide, and officially released it on the first day of the four day event.

The literature, available in CD and internet formats allowing for up to the minute updates, provides detailed specifications on hundreds of Airgas products used in a variety of specialty gas applications.

The online version features an integrated product search toolbar, high quality photographs and illustrated flow curves to help users locate the right products for their needs and make informed decisions based on gas application requirements.

Airgas associates conducted tutorials, and provided additional information to those who needed it.

The company also held six free technical suite sessions to discuss the demands facing analytical and life science laboratories, and the methods essential to improving lab efficiency.
