High-Purity Analytical Gases for Northern Illinois Laboratory Research03/29/2018We get what’s at risk: The fundamental intent in laboratory research is to execute the most thorough, consistent, and accurate analysis possible. That’s the case whatever the field or industry, either. Laboratories that research, test, and measure are an inescapable part of the scenery anymore, with concerns ranging from consumer product development, to automotive safety improvements, to medical advancements, to environmental protection, to … well, anything else your lab might be researching! And as research laboratories have proliferated, PurityPlus® and its network of over 150 Partners at 600 locations nationwide have been there producing unsurpassed high-purity specialty gases for every analytical requirement. Weldstar Specialty Gases is proud to be the PurityPlus® Partner catering to research laboratories in and around Northern Illinois. Independent third-party certification of our processes and our products verifies the purity of our gases, too, allowing you to pursue your analytical goals with confidence. While the range of gases we produce for Northern Illinois research labs is extensive, the most sought after are the carrier gases argon (Ar), helium (He), and nitrogen (N2). PurityPlus® argon is widely used in gas chromatography thermal conductivity, flame ionization, high-frequency discharge, and ultrasonic detectors … in GC-mass spectrometry … in Fourier Transform Infrared, atomic absorption, electronic paramagnetic resonance, inductive coupled plasma, and arc or spark emission spectroscopy … in mass spectrometry, atmospheric pressure ionization mass spectrometry … in hydrometers … and to detect carbon and sulfur in steel. PurityPlus® helium and nitrogen are similarly chosen for such uses. Weldstar Specialty Gases can offer you more than the essential high-purity gases, though. Our people can also inform you of the newest analytical methods and bring you up to speed on fresh research advances in your field. Equally important, we can help you pick the right gas to assure correct measurement and calibration first time, every time. Let us partner with you to make your Northern Illinois research laboratory the epitome of efficiency, accuracy … and profitability. Contact Weldstar Specialty Gases today.
