Compressed Argon Gases
DSW Industry provides a wide range of argon gases in a variety of cylinder, dewar , cryogenic tank sizes and variety of purity for all your industry needs.
The capability of providing pure gases get along with customized mixing of component gases to meet all your welding needs.
Most commonly used in the metal industry for metal production, processing and fabrication, it can be used as a pure gas for certain shielding, blanketing, annealing and hot isostatic pressing applications.
It can also be used as part of a mixture with other gases, in particular carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen or helium, depending on the process and material.

DSW offer argon gas in high-pressure gas cylinders and liquid argon dewars in a variety of sizes.
Argon is used to an inert shield gas to enhance arc stability and characteristics of gas metal arc welding.
It is also the primary gas for the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) process.
Argon may be referred to as “PLAR” pure liquid argon or “CLAR” (crude liquid argon), or by its chemical designation, “Ar”.
Crude argon is usually thought of as an intermediate product in a facility that makes pure argon, but it may be a final product for some lower capacity air separation plants which ship it to larger facilities for final purification.
Some crude argon is also sold as a final product for uses that do not need high purity oxygen (e.g. some steelmaking and welding applications).
DSW offers a full range Argon Gases in various purity to suit your application and process needs with cost effectiveness.
