Today’s speciality gases for calibrating and measuring gases and for measuring liquids and solids are on the cutting edge of technology.
Representing a significant leap forward in the supply of pure gases and mixtures, Afrox’s parent company The Linde Group is a leader in long shelf life (HiQ® 60) gases. This innovative range includes pure gases and non-reactive gas mixtures, with an extended five year shelf life and flat-line guarantee, enabling greater reliability in the accuracy of instrument measurement and longer term usability of gas.
Previously, gas suppliers across the market offered product expiration guarantees generally limited to 36 months, with many products available with only 12 or 24 months of shelf life. Gas products with a more limited shelf life can impact measurement accuracy, as gas stability in terms of consistency and quality can change over time.
The most important requirement of any gas used for calibration purposes, is that it can accurately and repeatedly report values of the instrument being measured. HiQ® 60 gas products alleviate concerns associated with quality or reliability issues for a period of up to five years and give customers peace of mind.
HiQ® 60 pure gases include argon, carbon dioxide, helium, hydrogen, nitrogen and synthetic air, with calibration mixtures available with multiple non-reactive components. Every HiQ® 60 cylinder of gas is supplied with a certification date, with all products guaranteed for the full 5-year shelf life from that date.
