Argon BIP® Cylinder

Ultra-high purity gas with unrivalled specifications

Air Products’ Experis speciality gases range includes a number of UHP (ultra-high purity) Argon products with specifications intended to deliver peace of mind whatever your application.

The BIP® range was originally developed to eliminate the root cause of some of the biggest problems encountered by analysts and working in Gas Chromatography (GC) and Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) Spectroscopy by the removal of the critical impurities, oxygen and moisture from carrier gases, detector gases, make up gases, and instrument fuel gases.

As each cylinder has a self contained purification system consisting of a specially designed valve and purifier bed, enabling it to deliver one of the purest ultra-high purity gases on the market today.

BIP® Argon with impurity levels of less than 10 ppb for oxygen, 20 ppb for moisture and 10 ppb for total hydrocarbons is therefore ideally suited to any analytical application or process where these compounds in larger concentrations can prove to have a detrimental effect on the results or equipment itself.

Specialist analytical and industrial applications require an assurance of gas purity at the point of use. BIP® gases guarantee the highest levels of purity. Ultra low impurity levels secure the accuracy of your results.

BIP® technology means failsafe analyses for all GC users, as the gases have impurity levels as low as 10 ppb THC, 10 ppb of O₂ and 20 ppb of H₂O. Every gas cylinder fitted with BIP® technology gives GC users the benefit of an improved baseline, better peak separation, lower detection limits and greater sensitivity. In addition to greater lifetime for columns and detectors and minimal maintenance.

BIP® gas is the zero-defect gas.

​Benefits of BIP® Technology

Cylinders with a built-in purifier, minimising O₂ and H₂0 impurities

Better Analysis

BIP® technology gives you gases that are up to 300 times purer than conventional carrier gases

Lower Costs

Lower oxygen and moisture can extend the working life of analytical equipment

Environmentally Friendly

BIP® purifiers are regenerated at the end of their service life

Improved Accuracy

Low THC impurities help reduce shielding effects on signals, and carbon deposits on mirrors

Unrivalled Moisture Specification

The < 10 ppb moisture makes it ideal for instruments with 'cooled chip' technology that can be damaged by moisture

BIP® technology changing the way you think about high purity gas

Discover an effective way of guaranteeing the lowest level of critical impurities directly from the cylinder.

"Why is gas purity critical for my analytical application?"
Some impurities can damage analytical instruments and affect accuracy of results. Oxygen and moisture are critical impurities in many analytical techniques.
