The scope of argon is quite extensive. In addition to street advertising, this gas is used in various areas, namely:
In the chemical industry, argon is used to produce ultrapure substances. The element also finds application in the electric power industry for filling specialized gas-charging lamps during the assembly of individual units. Argon is used as a protective medium in the welding process, as well as in cutting, melting rare alloys, aluminum-based metals, and magnesium alloys. This gas is non-toxic, non-explosive. However, when the gas is inhaled, a person loses consciousness, death occurs after a while. Due to the fact that argon is heavier than air, it provides reliable protection to the metal during the welding process. When working with this gas, it is necessary to use a special oxygen balloon to ensure complete isolation.
Argon can be supplied to customers in both gaseous and liquid states. Its transportation is carried out by road or rail in specialized cylinders that can withstand significant pressure. Liquefying argon is not required. In cylinders, liquid argon takes up less space than gaseous argon. Accordingly, it can be delivered by an order of magnitude more in just one time.
Liquid argon is poured into special cylinders with vacuum-powder, as well as with powder and vacuum-multilayer insulation. Tank sizes may vary. Regardless of this indicator, argon in cylinders is transported in accordance with the rules for the transport of dangerous goods. The price of argon is quite acceptable for all buyers. You can buy argon in the required quantity.
