What is Carbon Dioxide, (CO2) used for?
CO2 is one of the most versatile gases, it has many uses – beer and soft drink dispensing, gas purging, food packaging, welding, fire fighting, scientific equipment testing applications.
How pure is our Carbon Dioxide (CO2)?
Our standard level is 99.9%
Do we have high purity Carbon Dioxide (CO2)?
Yes, 99.9% is considered as high purity.
Is food grade better than normal industrial grade?
No, food grade and industrial grade are the same 99.8%
Do our cylinders have top or side entry valves?
We are in the process of changing all valves to side entry pressure retention.
What is a pressure retention valve?
A pressure retention valve maintains positive pressure in the cylinder thus preventing contaminants from entering the cylinder and ensuring the purity of the gas.
How safe is the gas?
The gas is inert (doesn’t react to anything), nontoxic, colourless, odourless and tasteless. We always recommend any gas must be used in a well ventilated area to reduce the danger of asphyxiation. It is now Australian Standard that an oxygen displacement alarm is fitted in all cellars. CO2 is a very cold gas. Be aware of cold burns.The cylinder should be stored in an upright position, with burst disc in vapour phase.
