Carbon dioxide, also known as CO2, is the most versatile of all gases. Its physical and chemical properties, and its ability to be processed into a liquid, gas or solid, make it ideal for a variety of diverse applications. It is normally stored as a liquid and can exist only as a solid or gas at room conditions. Carbon dioxide has a low temperature (-109° F as a solid), is highly inert under most conditions, and although basically non-reactive, becomes chemically active when exposed to moisture or high heat. Carbon dioxide is a compound of carbon and oxygen in proportions by weight of about 27.3 percent carbon to 72.7 percent oxygen. At normal atmospheric temperatures and pressures, carbon dioxide is colorless, odorless and about 1.5 times as heavy as air. Carbon dioxide is sensed by some persons as having a slight pungent odor and biting taste. It is normally inert and nontoxic. Tulsa Gas & Gear offers many sizes of carbon dioxide ranging from 20# cylinders to cryogenic bulk systems. SEE BELOW ON HOW TULSA GAS AND GEAR CAN HELP IN YOUR APPLICATION AND USES.
