Need Industrial Carbon Dioxide? OSC Is Here To Help!
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colorless greenhouse gas and one of the most important components of our atmosphere.
While carbon dioxide is a huge part of the natural world, it also plays a pivotal role across industries. Keep reading to learn more about industrial uses of CO2 and why Oxygen Service Company is the right CO2 provider for you.
Carbon dioxide has a huge variety of applications across industries. Some industries that commonly use CO2 include:
Carbon dioxide is commonly used in welding as a shielding gas during MIG/MAG welding. CO2 is especially useful for welding thick materials because it enables better joint penetration and gives welding guns superior arc stability. CO2 is increasingly common in welding because it speeds up processes, improves weld quality, and keeps the process clean.
CO2 is the #1 gas in the food and beverage industry. While we already mentioned CO2’s unique cooling properties, CO2 is even used for drink carbonation! Whether you’re drinking sparkling water, a can of soda, or some bubbly wine, CO2 is involved in all drink carbonation. The next time you’re enjoying a carbonated drink, thank carbon dioxide.
Industrial production of CO2 is often used in the chemical industry. Outside of being involved in the production of urea and methanol, carbon dioxide may soon be used as a fuel source.
Captured CO2 has started to be studied as a raw material for transport fuels. While this technique isn’t financially viable right now, increased electrical efficiency could make CO2-based synthetic fuels a reality. There’s a lot of promise for carbon dioxide in the chemical industry, and we’re happy to fulfill whatever CO2 needs you have.
