Why is argon used in analytical laboratories?
Air Products' ultra-high purity (UHP) argon supplied in the cylinder®BIP contains impurity levels of less than 10 ppb for oxygen, 20 ppb for moisture and 10 ppb for total hydrocarbons. It is ideally suited to any analytical application or process where these compounds in larger concentrations can prove to have a detrimental effect on the results or equipment itself.
