Carbon dioxide gas Description
Yuantong gas has a history of nearly 23 years in Carbon dioxide which is established on year 1995.Carbon dioxide is a compound containing carbon and oxygen. At atmospheric temperatures and pressures, carbon dioxide is in gaseous form. It is colorless, odorless, about 1.5 times heavier than air and a slightly acid gas. The gas is nonreactive, nontoxic and nonflammable. Solid carbon dioxide (dry ice) is formed at a temperature of -78.5℃.
Used for deep breathing and coughing to prevent or treat atelectasis
Used for close-to-physiologic atmosphere for the operation of artificial organs and in cryosurgery with insufflators during laparoscopic surgery
For cry therapy or for local analgesia by external application onto the skin surface
For transient respiratory stimulation
For injection into body cavities during surgical procedures
Used to carbonate soft drinks, PH control in water treatment, in chemical processing, as a food preservative, in chemical and food processing.
Used as a refrigerant when freezing food products, low temperature testing of aviation, missile and electronic components, as well as in fire extinguishers systems.
