Xenon is a rare noble gas that makes up less than 0.00001% of the Earth’s atmosphere. While some Xenon sources come from mineral springs, they can also be commercially produced as a by-product from an air separation unit (ASU) plant. The unique properties of Xenon make it useful in various applications across industries.
One of the main applications of Xenon is in the production of plasma displays for television flat screens. It is also commonly used in semiconductor and memory chip production, where high-purity Xenon is used as an atmosphere, plasma, and ion beam source for deposition and etching. In the glass manufacturing process, Xenon is utilized to fill halogen sealed-beam headlights.
Apart from industrial applications, Xenon also has medical uses. It is used as a neuroprotective and anesthetic agent in the medical market. Additionally, Xenon is used in high-energy particle physics research. Ultra-high purity Xenon, which has very low oxygen and water content, is used for gamma-ray and X-ray spectroscopy to study research related to the universe and dark matter.
Ace Gases offers high-purity grade Xenon products in the form of cylinders at different volumes. Our Xenon products are suitable for various applications across industries, and we ensure that they meet the highest quality standards.
