High Purity & Custom Mixes

Our selection is useful in various applications, from research, technology, & medical applications

An Industry-Leading Provider of Specialty Gases

Specialty gases, also known as rare gases, are a group of chemical elements with unique characteristics due to their electronic configuration. Because they are chemically inert, they do not easily react with other elements, hence the name “specialty.”

Specialty gases are the most inert elements on the planet. These chemically inactive substances are created through a process called air separation units (ASU) and have proven to offer remarkable uses due to their specific properties. They are highly sought after for their exceptionally high stability, making them ideal ion beam sources to cleanly cut or weld materials.

Thanks to our expansive reach, CK Supply can provide an array of rare and specialty gas elements and mixtures with varying levels of purity for any application or industry.

Elements That Are Specialty Gases Available at CK Supply

We have each of the six rare gases available at CK Supply: helium (He), neon (Ne), argon (Ar), krypton (Kr), xenon (Xe), and radon (Rn). They are located in Group 18 of the periodic table, also known as the specialty gas group. All have a complete outer shell of electrons, which makes them very stable and unreactive. This electronic configuration is represented as ns^2np^6, where n is the principal quantum number and s and p are the orbitals.

  • Helium

    Helium (He) is the lightest of all specialty gases and is the second most abundant element in the universe, after hydrogen. It is used in balloons, airships, and blimps because it is lighter than air. Helium is also used in welding, gas chromatography, and as a coolant in nuclear reactors.

  • Neon

    Neon (Ne) is used in lighting, particularly in neon signs. It is also used in vacuum tubes, television tubes, and fluorescent lamps. The rare gas also assists cryogenics in cooling materials down to extremely low temperatures.

  • Argon

    Argon (Ar) is the third most abundant gas in the Earth’s atmosphere, used in welding and as a shielding gas in steel manufacturing. Argon is also used in lighting, such as incandescent and fluorescent bulbs.

  • Krypton

    Krypton (Kr) is used in lighting, such as high-intensity discharge, photography, and the automotive industry. Krypton assists nuclear medicine, specifically in the imaging of the lungs.

  • Xenon

    Xenon (Xe) is used in lighting and anesthesia for surgical procedures. The specialty gas also aids nuclear medicine, mainly for imaging the brain.
