Pakistan Oxygen Limited (POL) offers a wide array of industrial and medical gases to support different industries.
Argon is produced by our Air Separation Units (ASU) where the process begins with a main air compressor that sends air through a clean-up system that removes moisture, carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbons. Later through liquefaction of atmospheric air, argon is separated by continuous cryogenic distillation. The finished product is then stored as a cryogenic liquid in specialized vacuum insulated cryogenic containers and is transferred to customers as per their demand.
A highly inert gas, Argon is wildly used as a shielding gas for arc welding and as an ambient gas in steel refining procedures. It is also used for filling mixtures for incandescent (filament) lamps and phosphorescent tubes, increasing thermal insulation of multi pane windows and for manufacturing semiconductor chips.
Argon serves as a shielding gas in a number of welding processes. Argon is frequently supplied in liquid form to larger welding shops. This is more economical compared to smaller, high pressure tanks that are used for smaller operations. Liquid argon is stored, shipped, and handled in several types of containers, depending upon the quantity required by the user. The types of containers in use are cryogenic liquid cylinders and cryogenic storage tanks. Storage quantities vary from a few litres to thousands of gallons.
From general welding to highly specialised laser job shops, Pakistan Oxygen is able to support the varying application needs across the full application and equipment spectrum, combining both traditional and new cutting, welding and coating processes. We provide the equipment, consumables and safety gear as well as the safety training to ensure that handling and welding upholds the best safety practices.
