Specialty Gases from Messer
As a leading industrial gas specialist, Messer offers a wide variety of specialty gases. The extensive product range includes liquid helium, high purity gases, rare gases, standard and individual gas mixtures as well as the necessary specialty gases equipment. The product requirements are just as specific and diverse as their applications.
Reliable product quality is the most important requirement for specialty gases. Compliance with the defined product specifications is based on strict quality management. The extensive and long-standing experience and highly skilled employees in development, production and analytics enable us to continuously meet the high quality expectations of our customers.
Specialized Production Sites
Messer operates specialty gas production plants in Europe, Asia, North and South America. In Europe, our plants are located in Belgium, France, Austria, Switzerland, Serbia and Hungary. Through decentralized production, we ensure close contact with our customers. At the same time, thanks to the central coordination of our factories, we offer consistently high quality products. Beyond the general quality management system according to the EN ISO 9000 family, four of our European specialty gas plants hold an accreditation as a calibration laboratory according to EN ISO/IEC 17025. With even further accreditation according to EN ISO 17034, our Swiss laboratory achieves the recognition that it meets the highest quality and competency requirements necessary for the production of certified reference materials.
Specialty Gases portfolio
The specialty gas product portfolio includes a wide range of high-grade products – from liquid helium to an extensive range of pure gases and standard mixtures to gas mixtures that are specially produced to individual customer specifications. The supply options range from gas mixtures in pressurized cans to bulk supply of pure gases, from technical up to 6.0-quality. Our customers benefit from Messer experts' problem solving expertise, demonstrated through personal consultation.
It is only in their application that gases become useful. For example, while liquid helium is used to cool MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machines, helium gas is used to lift balloons or airships and at a higher purity functions as carrier gas in gas chromatography. Of course, these applications place completely different demands on the product, the delivery form, the equipment used and the service provided. Messer’s experts work together with the user to develop the optimal concept for each individual case.
Safety is always a top priority. Messer provides information on gas properties, the safe handling of gases and gives safety instructions. Customers using a high number of calibration gases, e.g. in a laboratory, can benefit from the online management tool myLab.
