Choose CK Supply as Your Compressed Gas Distributor

Since we’re the largest independent supplier of industrial gases in Missouri, you can trust the knowledge and experience of CK Supply.
Our five retail locations in Missouri and Illinois offer an array of industrial gases, including:
Argon is a colorless, odorless inert gas that is most commonly used for shielding gas (in pure form or in various mixtures) in welding and other high-temperature processes.
Acetylene is a highly flammable, colorless gas. It’s the most common fuel gas used with cutting torches. Some industry experts believe it’s the hottest and most efficient fuel gas available. Low moisture content is the secret to the gas’s effectiveness in generating heat.
Blue Flame Plus is an outstanding product because it has a high flame temperature of 6,000 degrees Fahrenheit in oxygen, a flame structure well suited to heavy burning and heating. These properties allow Blue Flame Plus to cut, heat treat, flame harden, metallize, and braze quickly, cleanly, and economically.
In industrial processes, oxygen is used with fuel gases in gas welding, gas cutting, oxygen scarfing, flame cleaning, flame hardening, and flame straightening. Medical-grade oxygen is also important for patient stabilization, breathing assistance, and respiratory treatments.
Helium is widely used in a variety of applications, including to cool MRI magnets, shield welding processes, balloon lifting, and leak detection.
Compressed hydrogen is used in many research and industrial applications, including welding, annealing, and heat treating.
Making up 78% of the air we breathe, nitrogen is used for laser assist gas, purging, blanketing, and pressure testing pipelines, cryopreservation of medical matter, and other industry purposes. Food and beverage industries also use nitrogen to preserve food, transport products, and create carbonation in sodas and sparkling drinks.
CK Supply specializes in nitrogen applications and equipment of all cylinder sizes in gas and liquid form. Our nitrogen tanks range anywhere from 50 to 11,000 gallons. We take pride in our wide variety of tanks, as we want to assist businesses of all sizes.
Carbon dioxide in solid and liquid form is generally used for refrigeration and cooling. It’s also used as an inert gas in chemical processes and in fire extinguishers. Dry ice, the solid form of carbon dioxide, can also be used to safely and efficiently clean industrial equipment.
Our carbon dioxide is also valuable for the food and beverage industry. You can use our dry ice to keep food products fresh during transport, help food retain nutrients, and add carbonation to soda and other drinks.
Propane is a colorless, highly-flammable fuel gas. It’s a byproduct of natural gas processing and petroleum refining. Although commonly used for home heat applications, it offers unique benefits as a fuel source for forklifts, generators, and metal cutting.
