Diving Gases

Ace Gases offers a wide range of diving gases for both recreational and professional diving applications. These gases include Synthetic Air, Nitrox, Heliox, and Trimix.

Synthetic Air is a gas mixture that consists of 79% nitrogen and 21% oxygen, the same composition as the air we breathe. However, unlike regular air, synthetic air is purified to remove any trace of contaminants. It is used by recreational divers who want to avoid the risk of contaminated air and also as a backup gas for technical diving.

Nitrox, also known as Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx), is a gas mixture consisting of nitrogen and oxygen with a higher oxygen content than regular air. Nitrox is used to extend dive times and reduce decompression time for recreational divers. The higher oxygen content allows for longer bottom times at shallower depths, but it is limited to a maximum depth of 40 meters due to the risk of oxygen toxicity.

Heliox is a mixture of helium and oxygen, and it is commonly used in deep-sea diving to reduce the effects of nitrogen narcosis and oxygen toxicity. Heliox is used by commercial divers and technical divers who need to go deeper than recreational limits. This gas allows divers to breathe more easily at depth and perform tasks without being affected by the physiological effects of breathing gases at high pressure.

Trimix is a mixture of helium, nitrogen, and oxygen, and it is commonly used in technical diving. It reduces the effects of nitrogen narcosis and oxygen toxicity, which allows divers to go deeper than the recreational diving limit of 40 meters. Trimix requires specialized training and equipment and is used by experienced technical divers who need to perform tasks at great depths.

Ace Gases is committed to providing diving gases that meet the highest safety standards. All of our diving gases are produced and tested in accordance with strict safety regulations to ensure that they meet the specific needs of our customers.

It is important to note that diving gases must be carefully analyzed before use, especially for offshore applications. Ace Gases provides a certificate of analysis for each cylinder of diving gas that we sell or rent. This certificate provides detailed information about the composition of the gas, including the percentages of nitrogen, oxygen, and other gases.

It is critical that divers verify the certificate of analysis before using any diving gas, as the incorrect mixture of gases can be extremely dangerous at depth. This is why Ace Gases recommends that divers use our diving gases only with proper analysis and in strict accordance with industry regulations.

In addition, Ace Gases ensures that all of our diving gases and gas racks are compliant with relevant safety standards, including DNV 2.7-1 and 2.7-3, to ensure that our customers are receiving the highest quality products that meet the strictest safety requirements. Ace Gases offers all of these diving gases in DNV 2.71-certified gas racks available in 16-cylinder or 64-cylinder bundles and lifting frames for individual cylinders.
