MicroCalgas

We developed MicroCalgas for Ideal Calibrations, in response to their repeated complaints from customers at having to pay Dangerous Goods shipping charges.  The idea has been around for a while, but the difficulty, of course, was making stable reactive gas mixtures in these small containers, since smaller compressed gas cylinders have a less favorable surface to volume ratio that larger cylinders.  In other words—more metal to gas exposure.

Our technical people solved this last problem by applying the Ideal Coating System™ to the inside of these MicroCalgas cylinders so that the contents were sealed off from contact with the reactive gases.  This product is patent pending and marketed solely through Ideal Calibrations.
