Technical Gases

Facilitating optimization
In industrial production, technical gases are as important as water and electricity. Their specific properties and the way in which they are used ensure greater efficiency, safety and cost-effectiveness in many processes. Industrial gases also play a crucial role in terms of product quality.
The most widely used industrial gases include acetylene, argon, carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen. Messer also offers many of these gases as mixtures for special applications.

Technical gases used in welding
Welding technology comprises over 100 distinct methods (according to DIN EN 4063). Messer markets its range of shielding gases in a clearly structured system under standardized corporate brand names based on the raw material being processed:

Ferroline – for plain and low-alloy steels 
Inoxline – for high-alloy steels 
Aluline – for aluminium and non-ferrous metals
Addline – for additive manufacturing of metals

Food gases

Gases for the food industry

Ensuring freshness and quality

Longer-lasting quality, visual appeal, sparkling freshness – gases perform a variety of tasks in the food industry. The primary purpose of these applications is to preserve a product’s existing quality. This means that gases are often used at the production stage. Typical applications include freezing and packing, cooling during mixing processes and carbonation of beverages.

Messer is constantly developing new applications for the food industry. One example is Variomix®, which is used for rapid and precise control of the product temperature during mixing processes; another is VarioSol®, which is used for the production of powdery products, or the “Siber System”, a flexible and innovative transport refrigeration system used to ensure an unbroken cold chain for fresh and frozen products.

Gourmet is the name under which Messer supplies pure gases and gas mixtures for the food industry. These gases satisfy the highest quality standards and meet all the European legal provisions on food as well as every HACCP requirement.
