Nitric Oxide Supplier to Auburn

Spec Air Specialty Gases is happy to make PurityPlus® Nitric Oxide (NO), a colorless, nonflammable but toxic oxidizing gas, available for its typical uses in Auburn.

Nitric Oxide is produced as a pollutant via the combustion of fossil fuels in the presence of excess oxygen. It is also produced by the direct reaction of atmospheric nitrogen to oxygen during electrical storms. For the commercial market, all high-purity Nitric Oxide is made from the oxidation of ammonia by means of a platinum catalyst and heat. Small amounts of NO can be created in the laboratory by using copper to reduce diluted nitric acid.

The majority of the Nitric Oxide produced is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of concentrated nitric acid. High-purity Nitric Oxide is used in calibration standards for environmental emission monitoring, industrial hygiene monitors, and trace impurity analyzers. NO is also used in gas mixtures to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and is further showing up in many pharmacological research applications in which vasodilation acts as a means of pain reduction.
