Applications

We meet the demand for CO2 in a range of industries, from beverage and paintball to farming and medicine.

Beverage

Luxfer was the first company to manufacture cold-extruded aluminum CO2 cylinders for beverage service. Clean, corrosion-resistant, lightweight Luxfer cylinders remain the ideal choice for commercial dispensing beers, lagers, ciders, stouts and carbonated soft drinks.

Welding

CO2 is used as a shield gas in MIG/MAG welding, protecting the weld-puddle from oxidation from surrounding air.

Medicine

For cold sterilization of medical instruments, respiration stimulants, carboxytherapy and dental applications.

Agriculture

For air enrichment and hydroponics installations.
