INDUSTRIAL GAS & EQUIPMENT FOR THE DIVING INDUSTRY

Exploring without limits

They say the oceans are the last frontier. At Praxair, we give you the gases, equipment and supply systems you need to explore the depths worry-free. We developed the first breathing mixture tables in the 1920’s, and have been advancing the diving industry ever since. So whether you’re diving for commercial or technical purposes, we are knowledgeable about which gases blend most effectively for the depths you’re planning to travel. Our industrial gases meet stringent U.S. Coast Guard-approved and Canadian Standards Association-approved specifications, giving you the freedom to explore the depths.


INDUSTRIAL GASES FOR THE DIVING INDUSTRY

Helium
Gaseous helium is an industrial carrier gas for oxygen in synthetic breath mixtures, enabling deep-sea divers to conduct scientific explorations and develop offshore oil and gas resources.

Oxygen
Oxygen is an essential component of every breathing gas mixture. Mixes that contain less than 21% oxygen are used in technical diving as deep breathing gas.

Nitrogen
Nitrogen, the main component of air, is the most affordable and most common industrial gas for shallow diving.

Argon
Because of its thermal insulation properties, argon is used to inflate dry suits for deep sea diving.
