Packaged Gases Applications

Leveraging over 50 years of experience our packaged gas products are used in many applications

Metal Fabrication - Welding and Cutting

Many specialized welding processes use inert shielding gas or the combination of gases to obtain the maximum weld quality and optimized productivity. Liquid cylinders offer the flexibility to easily alter the gas supply to match the manufacturing process changes. Likewise with laser, oxy fuel and plasma cutting, it is critical that the gas supply be uninterrupted and the required pressure and flows are maintained. Laser-Cyl® Liquid Cylinder manifolded together are an economical solution to uninterrupted gas supply.

Analytical / Laboratory

A continuous flow of high purity argon gas is required for Inductively Coupled Plasma/Mass Spectrometry and Gas Chromatograph systems to repeatedly process material samples trouble-free. Dura-Cyl® Liquid Cylinders manifolded together meet this requirement. In addition, liquid cylinders are compact so they take up a minimal amount of valuable lab space.

Medical - Oxygen Therapy, Cryotherapy and MRI

Medical applications have some of the most stringent gas requirements and the Dura-Cyl liquid cylinder meets these requirements with NF grade availability. An isolated hyperbaric chamber with intermittent use of oxygen is also a good application for Dura-Cyl cylinders. NF grade nitrogen can be supplied for gas applications to operate pneumatic surgical tools and supply liquid for medical uses such as cryotherapy. Superconducting magnets bathed in liquid helium are the most commonly used magnets in an MRI machine. Chart's Ultra-Helium Dewar™ Cryogenic Tanks are designed and built for reliable helium transport.

Cryosauna / Cryotherapy Applications

Cryotherapy is a process that accelerates the body’s natural recovery while improving overall well-being by using a completely dry, noninvasive, hyper-cooling process that lowers a person’s skin temperature. Chart has created the following Application Solution Briefs to solve the equipment challenges for this application.

Metal Processing

Heat treating and cryotempering processes are dependent on the quality of the nitrogen gas and liquid supply to maintain production at peak performance. With the Dura-Cyl liquid cylinder located at the point of use, the operator has complete control over their gas supply for optimum operation.
