Industrial Gases (Cylinders)

A wide range of inert, fuel and welding gases supplied in a variety of cylinder sizes and pressures

Industrial Gases

BOC supplies a full range of industrial gases in multiple cylinder sizes. We offer a comprehensive selection of pure, fuel and oxidant gases that support the key applications of our manufacturing customers, along with a full range of shielding gas mixtures.

Available in numerous sizes and pressures, cylinders offer a high degree of versatility and flexibility, supplied in a range of packages from steel cylinders to innovative solutions including GENIE® and VIVANTOS®.

For large volumes, we offer manifolded cylinder pallets, typically containing 15 cylinders, and recommended for users that require more gas than single cylinders - ideal when productivity is paramount.

Atmospheric Gases

The air we breathe is a mixture of various gases, each with its own unique properties that are invaluable for so many industrial processes and medical therapies.
Known as atmospheric gases, the components of air include:

Air also contains a number of rare gases such as xenon, krypton and neon. Although the ratio of this life-sustaining mixture has varied over time, the components have remained unchanged for many millions of years.

Separating the Gases
The main atmospheric gases – oxygen, nitrogen and argon – and the rare gases are generally captured by reducing the temperature of air until each component liquefies and can be separated. Carbon dioxide is usually recovered as a by-product of various industrial processes, in chemicals and refining in particular. 

As a pioneer in cryogenic air separation, we have gained unparalleled know-how in the design and construction of air separation units (ASUs). 

The majority of atmospheric gases are classified as unreactive or inert, and it is only the oxidising gases, oxygen and carbon dioxide, that react readily with other elements.
