In addition to Oxair’s core international markets for oxygen and nitrogen systems, our manufacturing expertise extends to other industries and includes mist eliminators, desiccant air dryers, carbon adsorption towers, pressure vessels and skid fabrication and process piping for a huge variety of applications.
We can deliver the right, cost-effective solution for the continuous supply of oxygen and nitrogen for any requirement and budget in a very reliable package for companies working in sectors including defence, laser cutting, heat treating, inerting – such as reducing the volatility of air in an aircraft fuel tank – wineries and veterinary services.
For example, Oxair’s oxygen applications are ideal for aquaculture. These enable fish farms to dissolve this life-giving gas in any size tank so that farms are able to increase stocking densities. The fish are also healthier and have better taste when raised in an oxygen rich environment.
Nitrogen generators are an efficient and cost-effective way to eliminate the threat of oxidation during wine production and bottling and to preserve the quality of the wine. Nitrogen generators replace the need for handling high pressure N2 cylinders and expensive gas company contracts. They are safe, reliable, easy to operate, never run out of nitrogen, and generate nitrogen gas as needed so they can accommodate seasonal or fluctuating production schedules.
Laser cutting mild or SS steel with nitrogen gas leaves a much cleaner edge and does not affect paint adhesion in any way – better than oxygen assisted laser cutting when painting of the finished surface is needed.
Pure nitrogen for tyre filling of high pressure vehicles, like F1 racing cars and aircraft, has been used to inflate critical tyre applications for years, primarily because it doesn’t support moisture or combustion. These include racing tyres (IndyCar, Formula 1, NASCAR), aircraft tyres (commercial and military) and heavy-duty equipment tyres (earthmovers and mining equipment).
Oxair’s nitrogen applications can also be deployed for a more humane method of mass euthanasia process for chickens – nitrogen gas is a better alternative than carbon dioxide as death comes quicker and is far more humane.
