Compressed Air

Because we do it right

Compressed Air gas is atmospheric air, made up of 78% Nitrogen, 21% Oxygen and 1% of rare atmospheric gases – i.e. Carbon, Methane, Argon, Hydrogen and Helium
Supplied in pressured cylinders, when used in combination with another fuel it produces a low temperature flame which is suitable in brazing and soldering
Whilst this is technically air, the fact it is compressed, means it still comes with its dangers
The cylinders may explode if exposed to heat and they must be stored in well ventilated areas
Should a fire occur, the normal measures to extinguish it can be applied – especially water from a safe protected distance
