Healthcare, Biotech Firms and Research Facilities Call on PurityPlus® for More Than Specialty Gases


In various Beaumont industries, PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators and storage dewars are as much in demand from Coastal Welding Supply as the specialty gases we produce.

As you’d figure, the life sciences depend very much on this type of equipment. They use it chiefly to safeguard delicate biological materials – human tissue, stem cells, bone marrow, cord blood, and so forth. Medical and pharmaceutical labs especially employ our cryogenic refrigerators and dewars for all kinds of medical research, including the creation of vaccines. Then, as you’d expect, there are the blood banks, tissue banks, hospitals, and clinics for whom such provisions are vital. Other PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerator and dewar customers are government and university research facilities as well as various biorepositories that specialize in the collection, processing, inventorying, and distribution of biological specimens.

PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators are offered in a number of models and sizes – the better to permit long-term storage of liquid nitrogen and other cryogenic substances at the most advantageous temperature. The availability of various hold times, work times, evaporation rates, and other characteristics ensures a refrigerator for practically any cryogenic application.

Our dewars feature vacuum-layered walls that provide unbeatable thermal insulation and thus markedly limit the speed at which their contents – either liquid nitrogen or other cryogenic substances – are lost to evaporation.

In addition to these cryogenic products, we also offer Beaumont life science firms …

  • a top-quality whisper valve for cryogenic refrigerators and dewars. This device installs with no effort at all on the vent valve of these canisters to reduce – almost noiselessly – the pressure of the compressed gases they hold. Result? Less container damage and fewer lab upsets.
  • a variety of gas cylinder manifold alternatives including those with automatic changeover. These systems allow a continuous flow of gas while automatically changing cylinder or bank priority from the origina[l|ting]92] source to a supplementary supply with no fluctuation in pressure.

As indispensable as our cryogenic equipment is to healthcare, medicine, and biotechnology, we furnish other Beaumont-area industries with these products as well. Case in point: the manufacture of high-end metal products often warrants the use of cryogenics. Utilities depend on cryogenics too – to cool wires and aid in the smooth transmission of electric power. In the food industry, cryogenic flash-freezing helps protect food nutrients and texture over a prolonged shelf life. And cryogenic freezing is pretty much mandatory in the production of superconductors for, say, MRI machines or use in quantum computing.

Whatever your field, whatever your application, get the preferred cryogenic equipment and gases for it from Coastal Welding Supply, your Beaumont PurityPlus® Partner.
