Nitric Oxide Supplier to Beaumont Coastal Welding Supply is pleased to make PurityPlus® Nitric Oxide (NO), a colorless, nonflammable but toxic oxidizing gas, available for professional use in Beaumont. Nitric Oxide is generated as a pollutant by the combustion of fossil fuels in the presence of excess oxygen. It is also generated by the direct reaction of atmospheric nitrogen to oxygen during electrical storms. Commercially, all high-purity Nitric Oxide is obtained from the oxidation of ammonia with a platinum catalyst and heat. Small measures of NO can be produced in the laboratory by using copper to reduce diluted nitric acid. Most of the Nitric Oxide made 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 finds use also in gas mixtures to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and is increasingly being used in many pharmacological research applications employing vasodilation as a method of pain reduction.
