Don’t jeopardize gas purity or gas blend integrity through the use of inferior gas handling equipment. Praxair’s ProSpec™ high purity gas handling equipment includes a broad range of high purity regulators, flowmeters, manifolds, gas distribution panels, cabinets, cryogenic storage units and more, which can be configured to meet your specific equipment needs.
Praxair designs and manufactures gas handling equipment in-house using high quality components. If your laboratories are considering renovations or expansion, Praxair can design and implement a turnkey buildout to fit your needs.
Praxair’s Sentry™ Cylinder Tracking System can help you increase efficiency by automating the process of tracking and managing your specialty gas and liquid cylinders from production to delivery and return. Our Sentry program eliminates the need for traditional paper-based systems, increasing the accuracy of accounting for cylinder balances, deliveries and billing.
The Praxair Sentry system uses barcode scanning technology and follows a closed-loop, five-point tracking process to ensure accuracy at every step. Cylinders are tracked by serial number, so even if a barcode is corrupted or removed from a cylinder, the cylinder can still be accurately tracked.
Ongoing innovation is at the center of the Praxair mission of making our planet more productive. We work continuously to develop and bring new technology, products and services to market that will help customers do more with less and reduce their environmental impact.
