From Raw Materials to Fuel for Processes, Industrial-Grade Gases are an Essential Component of Manufacturing

Gases are used for welding, machinery fabrication, QA testing and other supporting roles, but they can even be an important part of the product. For example, double-glazed, energy efficient windows are filled with inert gases. Manufacturers also use pure gases to test products, ensure quality control, and repair machinery. CK Supply works with manufacturing businesses of all sizes and industries to make sure they have a steady, reliable supply of industrial gases.

High-Quality Industrial Gases To Power any Manufacturing Process

There are many manufacturing processes that involve industrial gases and CK Supply is your trusted regional supplier. We focus on customized gas delivery plans, equipment sales and rentals, and specialized welding accessories.

We Provide Quality Industrial Gases for any Manufacturing Process

At CK Supply, we take quality control very seriously. From the accuracy of our bulk and microbulk deliveries to the purity of the gases we provide, we are a customer-driven company that prides itself on being responsive and professional. With five retail locations throughout Missouri and Illinois, CK Supply delivers key gases for any manufacturing application.

  • Argon

    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

    Acetylene is a highly flammable, colorless gas. It is the most common fuel gas used with cutting torches. Some industry experts believe it to be 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

    Blue Flame Plus is an outstanding product because it has a high flame temperature of 6,000 F in oxygen, a flame structure well suited to heavy burning and heating. These properties enable Blue Flame Plus to cut, heat treat, flame harden, metallize, and braze quickly, cleanly, and economically.

  • Cardon Dioxide

    Carbon dioxide in solid and liquid form is generally used for refrigeration and cooling. It can also be 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.

  • Helium

    Helium is widely used in a variety of applications, including cooling MRI magnets, shielding welding processes, balloon lifting, and leak detection.

  • Hydrogen

    Compressed hydrogen is used in many research and industrial applications, including welding, annealing, and heat treating.

  • Nitrogen

    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 much more! CK Supply specializes in nitrogen applications and equipment of all cylinder sizes in gas and liquid form.

  • Oxygen

    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.

  • Propane

    Propane is a colorless, highly-flammable fuel gas produced as a by-product 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.

We Provide Quality Industrial Vending for any Manufacturing Process

CK Supply is now offering Industrial Vending Solutions for managing and tracking inventory at almost any workplace. U.S. companies annually spend upwards of $150B on indirect materials and roughly half of that inventory goes unused each year. Industrial vending is a great solution for businesses that are looking to reduce their indirect material spending.

CK Supply has partnered with SupplyPro, an inventory management manufacturer, to bring savings to businesses by reducing inventory consumption, waste, and theft. This increases productivity with 24/7 availability of critical items and eliminates stock outs with automated ordering.

The program starts when the manager selects items such as gloves, welding tips, safety glasses, grinding wheels, etc., which will be stored within a highly customizable vending machine. The machine then controls access and tracks consumption by employee, machine, or department. This machine is also capable of storing larger serialized or calibrated items for check-in/check-out times for short-term use by employees.

The ongoing collection of data and reporting analytics can then provide the manager with as much (or as little) oversight as desired regarding inventory management. The customizable reports organize all of the trend analysis and usage information in one place and provide the evidence needed for the manager or CK Supply to make informed decisions regarding inventory control.

CK Supply is a solution provider that is dedicated to helping our customers meet their goals and objectives. Industrial vending is another example in which CK Supply has invested in technology in order to help our customers be more efficient and successful.
