Nitric Oxide Supplier to Southern California

WestAir Specialty Gases and Equipment is happy to make PurityPlus® Nitric Oxide (NO), a colorless, nonflammable but toxic oxidizing gas, available for professional use in Southern California.

Nitric Oxide is generated as a pollutant via the combustion of fossil fuels in proximity to excess oxygen. It is also produced by the direct reaction of atmospheric nitrogen to oxygen during electrical storms. For the commercial market, all high-purity Nitric Oxide is obtained from the oxidation of ammonia with a platinum catalyst and heat. Small quantities of NO can be produced in the laboratory by taking diluted nitric acid and reducing it with copper.

Most of the Nitric Oxide made is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of concentrated nitric acid. High-purity Nitric Oxide is used in calibration standards for environmental emission oversight, industrial hygiene monitors, and trace impurity analyzers. NO is also used in gas mixtures to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and is further showing up in many pharmacological research applications in which vasodilation acts as a means of pain reduction.
