We also offer the following:

  • ACUBLEND™ for Zero Blend Tolerance – ACUBLEND can produce a gas mixture with a unique feature called “Zero Blend Tolerance.” This process can also be used to prepare a gas mixture with precision based on a specified blend tolerance.
  • UNIPHASETM – For applications requiring mixtures with low vapour pressure and liquid components, UNIPHASE manufactures the mixture entirely in the liquid phase using a floating piston cylinder to preserve mixture integrity.
  • MICROGRAVTM for concentrations in ppt – Air Liquide prepares and certifies accurate and stable gas mixtures containing components with concentrations approaching parts-per-trillion (ppt) levels in returnable and non-returnable cylinders. Our MICROGRAV process is a direct blending technique that eliminates inaccuracies inherent in serial dilution methods.

Safety, conformance and certifications

Safety

Safety is part of Air Liquide’s DNA, as evidenced by the following:

  • Our strict compliance with regulations: We constantly monitor our operations and can always provide reports documenting the safety of our gases (risks, emergency measures).
  • Our ability to provide training on the handling of our gases and share best practices in safety.
  • Our expertise regarding your equipment, production lines and facilities.

Conformance

Our brand-name calibration mixtures are systematically analyzed against benchmark standards by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (Standard Reference Materials and NIST-Traceable Reference Materials).

Certificates

A certificate is an official document issued by Air Liquide Canada and signed by our chemists. It formalizes the results of the analysis performed on the gas, confirming its level of quality. Several types of certificates are available depending on your needs:

Certificate of Conformance Certifies that the gas complies with the specified grade (impurities are below grade levels). Supplied with the gas cylinder
Certificate of Analysis Certifies the concentration of the components in the gas. There is no measurement of impurities. Supplied with the gas cylinder
Custom Certificate Measures what the customer specifies. It often indicates the exact concentration of the components and the presence of certain impurities. Upon request

Available at our solution centre dedicated to specialty gas customers

 

Equipment

To choose the right regulator, gas detection system or cylinder accessories  to use your gas cylinder, please consult our dedicated page for gas handling equipment and accessories for specialty gases.

Supply modes

Do you have the occasional need for a specific gas mixture? Does your process only require a small quantity of gas? Do you need a specialty gas to test your gas detector?

Air Liquide Canada offers a wide variety of cylinder sizes so that our specialty gases can be used no matter where you are.
