Carbon dioxide gas
Carbon dioxide (CO2) comes compressed in cylinders, as a cryogenic liquid in bulk or solid as dry ice and is suitable for a wide range of applications
As distributors of carbon dioxide gas to commercial and individual customers in all parts of New Zealand, we supply industrial grade (carbon dioxide 2.5), laboratory grade (carbon dioxide 4.5), food grade, refrigeration and aviation grade CO2 gas. Both our carbon dioxide 2.5 and carbon dioxide 4.5 can be used for MIG welding, increased spatter, plasma cutting, cooling, inerting and pH balancing. Carbon dioxide 2.5 is also used for dry ice making, cleaning and blasting, while carbon dioxide 4.5 is used for pipe freezing, carbon dating and in laboratory liquid trap applications, in addition to the aforementioned uses.

Carbon dioxide gas should be stored in a very well ventilated place as even relatively small concentrations of CO2 can cause rapid adverse health effects or loss of consciousness. Cylinders should be stored upright and away from sources of heat to avoid the possibility of venting due to increased pressure.
Please contact us directly, or get in touch with your local distributor, if you would like to find out exactly how much it will cost to order the quantity and grade of carbon dioxide that you need.
This will depend on the size of the cylinder tank, as well as what you are using it for. If you know the flow rate of CO2 gas that is used in your application, we’ll be happy to provide you with some approximate figures to help you plan your stock levels.
Carbon Dioxide gas is roughly 1.5 times heavier than air, which means that in the event of a leak, the concentration of carbon dioxide gas in the air that is closest to the floor may increase considerably.
CO2 is the chemical formula for carbon dioxide and indicates that each molecule of carbon dioxide gas consists of 1 carbon atom joined to 2 oxygen atoms.
Commercial CO2 gas is produced as a by-product of various industrial processes that involve the combustion of natural gases (in industrial facilities where hydrogen and ammonia are produced). It may also be recovered from natural sources although this is not as yet a very cost-effective process.
