Used in a number of wildly different applications, nitrous oxide has something of a multiple personality. At one end of the scale, medical grade nitrous oxide is used by surgeons and dentists for its anesthetic and analgesic effects. At the other extreme, commercial nitrous oxide can be used as an oxidizer in rocketry and motor racing to increase thrust and horsepower.
This colorless, non-flammable gas has a slightly sweet odor and taste. Its many uses include:
- Aerosols packaging
- Calibration gas mixtures for the petrochemical industry
- Environmental emission monitoring
- Industrial hygiene monitors
- Trace impurity analyzers
- Semiconductor manufacturing
Our nitrous oxide supply comes in five different grades:
