Everett, Massachusetts, January 24, 2011. Middlesex Gases & Technologies Inc., the premier supplier of specialty/rare gases, cryogenics, MicroBulk and bulk gases in New England, has expanded their MicroBulk delivery services to include liquid argon capabilities.
Middlesex Gases' new MicroBulk delivery system replaces high pressure cylinders and portable liquid containers thus eliminating handling and changeouts with a low pressure storage tank. The revolutionary on-site filling technology requires twenty minutes or less with zero losses under normal conditions. With the delivery system's "smart" flow-meter and easy-to-read printouts, reports of your delivery are available in seconds.
The MicroBulk delivery system allows assets to be used more efficiently, reduces labor, eliminates empty-for-full exchange and significantly reduces distribution costs. Usage is monitored and deliveries are scheduled automatically for an uninterrupted supply of gas.
Argon gas has many industrial uses. In metal fabrication, it is an inert shielding gas for plasma, MIG & TIG welding applications. For laboratories, it is used for analysis and purging. For electronics manufacturing, it is used for crystal growth and CVD applications.
