Argon in the Atmosphere in Riverside

We are well aware that the air on Earth is comprised of multiple gases, oxygen and nitrogen having the highest amounts. Yet Argon is another gas that although does not have as high of a concentration in the atmosphere, has shown itself to be equally important throughout numerous industries.

Argon is an inactive, neutral and unscented gas that only makes up about 1% of the Earth’s atmosphere. Although this gas is limited in amount, it is consumed across multiple industries. In museums, Argon has traditionally been used for historic preservation. Historically meaningful articles, like the Declaration of Independence and the Magna Carta, are conserved using Argon. Unlike Oxygen, Argon does not decay the paper or ink of these, very fragile documents. On the opposite spectrum, in the welding industry Argon is utilized as a gas shield for arc welding.

Considering the diverse use cases for this gas, there remains a constant demand for the substance. Because of this, specialty gases like Argon are usually sold in smaller quantities and vessels.
