A new gas mixing facility for Afrox


South African Afrox has commissioned a 3,3 million rand scientific gas mixing and filling system at its Germiston plant.

This plant is capable of producing mixtures to an accuracy measured by parts per million, with up to 20 different components per mix. These mixes are selected from a range of some 350 different routinely required hydrocarbon, inorganic and atmospheric gases.

The new facility has the capacity to produce 750 cylinders of high value, specialised gas mixtures a month.

The scientific gases produced at the new facility are commonly used as calibration standards in laboratories across a spectrum of southern African industry sectors, including petrochemical, automotive, general manufacturing, food and beverage, mining and agriculture.
