PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0: The Preferred Ultra-High-Purity, Research-Grade Oxygen in Southern California


WestAir Specialty Gases and Equipment is a key source for PurityPlus® research-grade oxygen. It’s identified as Oxygen 5.0. With a 99.999% purity classification, it’s the best grade of oxygen PurityPlus® produces. That makes it unreservedly appropriate for use in all sorts of critical Southern California laboratory and industrial applications.

In laboratories, PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0 is commonly employed as either a bleaching or an oxidizing agent, as a combustible for flame ionization detectors, and wherever analytical or developmental applications gain in a major way from oxygen of such purity.

Industrial uses for PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0 range far and wide. This, to begin with, is the “go-to” gas for laser-etching silicon substrates in the making of semiconductors. It also figures quite often as a constituent of gas compounds used to encourage industrial hygiene and safety.

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

  • gas welding, gas cutting, and similar industry applications;
  • the steel industry – principally to elevate 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 – mainly as a bleaching chemical in the manufacture of superior-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.

There are, as you’d surely figure, other applications for PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0. But these are the uses to which most of our Southern California-area customers put it.
