gasworld attended this year’s Arab Health Exhibition and Congress, the largest healthcare exhibition and medical congress in the Middle East, on 25th January. Thousands of attendees from across the Middle East and further afield are expected to attend this event, which spans four days and concludes on 28th January.

Over 4,000 exhibition booths were at the showcase in Dubai. gasworld founder and Publisher, John Raquet, visited the event to find out who was involved from the industrial gases industry.

Both Arab Health and Medlab, the leading exhibitioners, dominated the event and helped orchestrate a mass gathering of businesses from the medical sector. The event incorporated both well know and emerging companies, keen to make new contacts and project their products into the industry.

Air Liquide, Healthcare Services was showcasing its Cryolor gas containment business, whilst Linde Healthcare Services had a large stand and aimed to explain their homecare service offering across the Middle East. Both companies are established Tier One players in the industrial gases industry.

gasworld visited PCI Gases, a manufacturing company of small oxygen (O2) plants, which uses a vacuum swing adsorption (VSA) technique rather than pressure swing adsorption (PSA). A representative for the business went on to explain that PCI’s technology was somewhat unique in that its plants use one blower to act as a supply source for the air and a vacuum generator to create the O2 separation.

Several other oxygen PSA systems providers from around the globe were also exhibiting, including US-based Oxair, INMATEC from Germany, Turkish company Ozcan Kardesler and Italian enterprise Noxerior. Plus, reputable O2 concentrator manufacturers AirSep were in attendance along with several other similar companies from China.

Various medical valve and control manufacturers were also present, including well known suppliers such as GCE, Gentec, French company Cahouet. Precision UK, a specialist in hospital piping systems, hoped to help expand its distributor network at this event, and CryopAL, reputable in the cryogenic cryo-science division but less well known to the general gases community, also had some of their products on show.
