• Bottled Carbon Dioxide Gas in the Fire Fighting Industry

Carbon dioxide can be used to extinguish flames by flooding the environment around the flame with the gas. It does not itself react to extinguish the flame, but starves the flame of oxygen by displacing it. Some fire extinguishers, especially those designed for electrical fires, contain liquid carbon dioxide under pressure. Carbon dioxide extinguishers work well on small flammable liquid and electrical fires, but not on ordinary combustible fires, because although it excludes oxygen, it does not cool the burning substances significantly and when the carbon dioxide disperses they are free to catch fire upon exposure to atmospheric oxygen. Their desirability in electrical fire stems from the fact that, unlike water or other chemical based methods, Carbon dioxide will not cause short circuits, leading to even more damage to equipment. Because it is a gas, it is also easy to dispense large amounts of the gas automatically in IT infrastructure rooms, where the fire itself might be hard to reach with more immediate methods because it is behind rack doors and inside of cases. Generally, Bottled Carbon Dioxide Gas can be used as Hand Portable Fire Exthinguisher or Mobile Fire Extinguisher when they are equipped with trolly to move around. Here are our CYLINDER Catalogue that can meet these two applications:

Carbon dioxide has also been widely used as an extinguishing agent in fixed fire protection systems for local application of specific hazards and total flooding of a protected space.[53] International Maritime Organization standards also recognize carbon dioxide systems for fire protection of ship holds and engine rooms. Here is our CYLINDER Catalogue that can meet this requirement with certificate from different Classification Society such as ABS, BV, CCS, DNV/GL, LR, KR…

  • Bottled Carbon Dioxide Gas in the Beverage and Brewing Business

When it comes to CO2 cylinders(a.k.a. CO2 tanks) used for beverage, there are really no standard sizes as different customer have different capacity requirement. Generally, a 2.5- or 5-pound CO2 cylinder is used for homebrewing and a 35- or 50-pound tanks is usually used for bigger operation such as a big event. Meanwhile, we do have a longer list in our catalog for the most used cylinder sizes in beverage making business, both in Steel and Aluminum material. Whether your customer need a CO2 bottle for homebrewing, soda delivery or cylinder filling, or if your customer want to order something according to the space of their machine or according to their specific needs, you can always find the size that can meet different needs. Or, if not, you can alwasys contact us to get a customized size for you.

  • Carbon Dioxide used for Growing gardens

Plants need carbon dioxide in order to live. It’s one of the elements needed for photosynthesis, along with sun and water (which you already knew, right?).

Gardeners will often up the levels of CO2 in their greenhouses to promote faster, fuller growth of plants, flowers, fruits, and vegetables. It’s a fine line to walk though — too much CO2 and the crops can wither away. Next time you’re walking in a greenhouse, see if you can spot the CO2 monitor!

Ever suddenly feel tired after spending some time in a greenhouse? That’s an effect of the elevated levels of CO2 in the air!

  • Carbon Dioxide used for making Dry ice

Dry ice IS solidified CO2 gas. That’s why, if you’ve ever had any in your home or in a package, it doesn’t melt into water like regular ice. If it seems to just disappear into thin air, that’s because it does! It’s called sublimation, or the process of a solid turning into a gas without ever liquifying.

  • Carbon Dioxide used for Preventing asthma attacks

American University did some experiments where they actually “froze” home furniture with CO2 to clean it. They found it to be the most effective method of removing allergens, mites, and other pathogens that cause allergies and asthma attacks.

The research actually makes sense, since CO2 is one of the elements used in the process of dry cleaning.

  • Carbon Dioxide used for Winemaking

CO2 is actually critical to the process of making wine. Unlike in beer production where it’s used to transfer and carbonate the drink, CO2 is needed for wine in the form of dry ice.

Dry ice is used for refrigerating the harvested grapes to stop fermentation while leaving the sugar content of the grapes intact. If regular ice were used in this process, while it would still achieve the halting of the fermentation process, it would ultimately “water down” the sugar in the grapes themselves. Not good, if you’re a connoisseur of fine wine.

  • Carbon Dioxide used for Lasers

CO2 lasers are big, scary effective, and of course, powered by CO2. CO2 can emit high-powered light beams, which makes it perfect for surgeons, welders, and other work that requires cutting or etching.
