CARBON DIOXIDE

CARBON DIOXIDE

Carbonic dioxide (or CO2) is colourless, odourless and tasteless gas widely spread in the nature.

Carbon dioxide occurs in three aggregate states and is used in gaseous, liquid and solid state. At low temperature (-78.5 oC), carbon dioxide changes from solid state to gas and from gas to solid state (also called dry ice) by missing the transitional liquid state. Carbonic dioxide obtains a liquid state only under higher than 5.1 atmospheric pressure (liquid carbonic dioxide is pressed with 65-70 atmospheric pressure).

Carbonic dioxide is filled in grey colored cylinders.

We offer to purchase food and/or technical carbonic dioxide in:

13.4 l cylinders (10 kg);

50 l cylinders (37 kg);

Cylinder bundles 12 x 50 l (444 kg);

Euro-cylinders from 230 l to 1,000 l;

Liquid carbonic dioxide (in tons).

We can fill the cylinders of other volumes as well. The clients buying a considerable amount of carbonic dioxide are supplied with special storage tanks for the product and carbonic dioxide is delivered with semitrailers.

Fields of industry

Metalworking

Carbon dioxide (carbonic acid) is used in smelting active and rare metals and their alloys, aluminium, aluminium and magnesium alloys, stainless heat-resistant chromium and nickel alloys and other different types of treated steels.

Fire-extinguishers

Carbonic dioxide is filled to fire-extinguishers – it is an effective mean for fighting fires, because carbon dioxide does not pollute the environment and cools down hot materials.

Neutralisation of alkaline wastewater

Pursuant to the EU Directives, alkaline wastewater generated in various fields of industrial production should be neutralised. Carbon dioxide is more economic and ecologic alternative than ordinary mineral acids.

Safety

Unprotected skin contact with liquid or solid carbon dioxide may cause cryogenic frostbites. The places of production should be ventilated. In order to avoid health risks, it is recommended to download the material safety data sheet and observe provided instructions.
