Nitrous Oxide Supplier to El Paso

A colorless, sweet-tasting, oxidizing gas, Nitrous Oxide (N2O) is used commercially quite often in El Paso, and SYOXSA, Inc. offers PurityPlus® N2O – the most trusted brand available.

Nitrous Oxide was initially compounded in 1772 by Joseph Priestly, who brought iron filings into contact with a nitric acid drip. As simple as that sounds, an even simpler technique for creating greater measures of N2O was perfected under the purview of Humphry Davy in the late 1700s. It entails applying attentively administered heat to ammonium nitrate, which effects its decompostion into Nitrous Oxide and water. The bulk of N₂O production depends on this technique, either directly or by a similar means of production that employs urea and a blending of sulfuric and nitric acids.

Nitrous Oxide is used as an anesthetic, as a leak-detection gas, and as an oxidizing agent. It is equally popular as a propellant in aerosol cans for the pharmaceutical and food-and-beverage industries, most commonly in commercially marketed whipped-cream dispensers.

N₂O has further application as a specialty oxidizing flame-support gas in atomic absorption (AA) instrumentation for metal analysis. When blended with specific perfluorinated hydrocarbons, it is a propellant/oxidizer of considerable utility in a few special-application rocket guidance systems. When its purity is driven to the highest levels (around 99.995+%, Nitrous Oxide is used with some frequency in semiconductor manufacture.
