The distributor, which has locations in Northwest of the US, unveiled its new state-of-the-art specialty gas mixture lab a year ago.

“Our gas production and distribution facility, headquartered in Smokey Point in Washington State is the only one of its kind in the Pacific Northwest,” CWS said in a statement.

The system was configured, engineered, and installed under the direction of Gary Emerson, the Lead Manager for all CWS fill plant operations.

“The system cylinder chamber offers a controlled environment to guarantee the end result,” CWS said. “Accelerated production capacity allows us to respond quickly with the highest purity gas mixtures in the marketplace. The lengthy certification process began late last summer 2020. ISO accreditation was the next logical step for high purity mixtures to be a part of Central Welding Supply’s everyday business.”

ISO/IEC 17025 is the main ISO standard used by testing and calibration laboratories. CWS has 25 locations serving Washington State, Oregon and Alaska.
