PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0: The Preferred Ultra-High-Purity, Research-Grade Oxygen in Sioux Falls


A-OX Welding Supply is a vital player in manufacturing PurityPlus® research-grade oxygen. It’s been christened Oxygen 5.0. With a 99.999% purity classification, it’s the best grade of oxygen PurityPlus® manufactures. That makes it eminently suitable for use in all manner of critical Sioux Falls laboratory and industrial applications.

In laboratories, PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0 is often used as either a bleaching or an oxidizing agent, as a combustible for flame ionization detectors, and in applications of a markedly analytical or developmental nature that would gain significantly from oxygen of such purity.

Industrial uses for PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0 cover a lot of ground. This, for instance, is the leading gas for laser-etching silicon substrates in the creation of semiconductors. It also figures quite often as a component in gas blends used to further industrial hygiene and safety.

What’s more, you’ll find PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0 used to a great degree in …

  • gas welding, gas cutting, and comparable industry applications;
  • the steel industry – mainly to raise combustion temperatures in blast and open-hearth furnaces;
  • oxidation processes vital to the chemical, pharmaceutical, and petroleum industries;
  • glass and ceramic manufacture;
  • pulp and paper manufacturing – primarily as a bleaching chemical in the production of top-quality bleached pulp;
  • the medical and healthcare industries – where extreme purity is vital, say, during surgery, for intensive-care treatment, and for inhalation therapy;
  • waste-water treatment plants.
