Nitric Oxide Supplier to Fresno

Fresno Oxygen & Welding Supplies/Barnes Welding Supply is pleased to make PurityPlus® Nitric Oxide (NO), a colorless, nonflammable but toxic oxidizing gas, available for commercial use in Fresno.

Nitric Oxide is generated as a pollutant by 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. Commercially, all high-purity Nitric Oxide is produced by the oxidation of ammonia through 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 created is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of concentrated nitric acid. High-purity Nitric Oxide is used in calibration standards for environmental emission regulation, industrial hygiene monitors, and trace impurity analyzers. NO is also introduced into gas mixtures to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and is finding increasing use as well in many pharmacological research applications involving vasodilation as a means of pain reduction.
