LASAL™ lasing and process gases, specifically designed by Air Liquide for laser cutting and welding.
The LASAL™ range of gases is supported by a full range of equipment solutions designed to ensure the high quality of our gases is maintained through to the point of use. Air Liquide can provide you with a cost-effective and convenient solution that delivers your laser gases at the flow-rate, pressure and purity that your laser system demands for optimal performance.
LASAL™ – A Complete Range of Lasing and Assist Gases
All our gases have been developed by Air Liquide R&D centres according to laser manufacturer requirements to ensure peak performance from your laser. The choice of gas will determine the reliability of your laser, the lifespan of your optics and output power.
Our full LASAL™ range of single component gases and multi-component mixtures are designed with the ultimate performance of your laser in mind. Air Liquide offers an extensive range of LASAL™ gases enabling you to select the right gas for your machine.
Process gases are available in convenient packages designed to ensure peak cutting performance by optimising pressure and flow rates. A choice of purities and package sizes are available with higher purity gases available for more demanding applications.
The Importance of Gas Purity
Air Liquide understands that gas purity is essential in achieving peak laser performance. All LASAL™ gases are strictly controlled to minimise the content of impurities such as moisture and hydrocarbons which reduce laser power and overall performance. Every cylinder or cylinder pack is a strictly dedicated package for the LASAL™ product line to ensure product purity is maintained.
The LASAL™ range offers advanced cylinder packaging, designed for safer, more reliable operation.
LASAL™ cylinders for lasing feature:
- SCANDINA™ Cap for easy manoeuvring to reduce risk of accidents
- Residual Pressure Valves (RPV) maintain gas quality by preventing back flow into cylinder
- Stringent impurity tolerances ensure your laser operates at its very best
- Labelling ensuring full traceability of cylinder
Assist Gases are available in:
- High pressure, high flow Nitrogen packs to meet ever more demanding applications
- High purity Oxygen enabling faster, cleaner cutting
Our equipment range is designed to complement and maintain the quality and purity of LASAL™ gases from cylinder to point of use.
Equipment for Lasing and Assist Gases
Lasing Gases Equipment:
Whether your laser uses premixed or individual component gases, Air Liquide has a range of regulators to suit every gas requirement. Regulators for laser use differ from standard regulators and are produced to a higher specification to ensure greater accuracy of pressure and reduce the risk of gas contamination. A purging function prevents contamination after changing cylinders.
Assist Gases Equipment:
For assist gases we have designed a range of regulators and changeover manifolds for both oxygen and nitrogen. A range of flow and pressure options are available to cover every potential demand.
LASAL™ Equipment Installation
In addition to our cylinder regulator offer, Air Liquide offer a full gas system pipeline installation service designed exclusively for laser users. This includes:
- High flow assist gas manifolds
- Lasing gas manifolds
- Point of use control equipment
- Stainless steel pipework to prevent gas contamination
- Bulk assist gas storage vessels and equipment solutions for large volume users
