Specialty Gas Industry News and articles from AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V. and PurityPlus®

Nitrogen Tank Blanketing in Mexico

Nitrogen is utilized for various purposes in the specialty gas industry. Other than being used in food and drug preparation, it is used in the maintenance of different (typically highly flammable liquid) materials. This method of preventative maintenance is called blanketing in the specialty gases industry.

CO2 and Entertainment in Mexico and beyond

Carbon dioxide (CO2) has been used to highlight special effects in the entertainment industry for a long time. The gas is chilled to a liquid to quickly (and economically) create special effects like fog and haze. Most have seen haze effects at concerts to highlight a spotlight or on TV for cloud effects.

How is Helium extracted at AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V.

Helium is a result of radioactive decay in natural gas. Therefore since natural gas has the most volume of helium, most specialty gas laboratories like AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V. will get Helium via natural gas. There are also limited amounts of helium in the air which can also be mined, however the process for that is expensive and rarely used.

Is Cryotherapy Right for You?

Industries and municipalities across the United States are still required to measure air pollution emissions and ambient air quality. As long as calibrated instruments are used to do the measuring, such instruments will require pure, stable, and precise mixtures of compressed specialty gases to assure complete accuracy. And AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V. will be here in Mexico to provide them just as weve done from our earliest days.

Benefits of an Oxygen Deficiency Monitor in Mexico

Most specialty gas laboratories in Mexico are familiar with safety precautions and procedures to maintain a safe working atmosphere. These precautions can include the installation of safety equipment to ensure that there are no atmospheric factors that would tamper with the work of gas technicians. This includes monitoring Oxygen levels across the entire laboratory. At AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V. we fully endorse and utilize oxygen deficiency monitors as a way to ensure only the best air quality in our AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V. laboratory.

PurityPlus® Argon: Mexico Winemakers Specialty Gas of Choice

The favorite specialty gas of our Mexico winemaking customers is argon because, 1) unlike oxygen, argon will not react with wine to produce any unwanted characteristics; and 2) argon is heavier than oxygen. Its higher density sees to it that more of the gas will be in extended contact with the surface of the wine, thus excluding more oxygen (and its adverse effects) as well as thwarting microbial spoilage.

PurityPlus® EPA Protocol Specialty Gas Mixtures for Mexico

Industries and municipalities coast to coast and border to border are still mandated to calculate air pollution emissions and ambient air quality.
