Healthcare, Biotech Firms and Research Facilities Turn to PurityPlus® for More Than Specialty Gases


In certain Denver industries, PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators and storage dewars are as much demanded from Rocky Mountain Air Solutions as the specialty gases we produce.

Of course, the life sciences count heavily on this type of equipment. They use it most often to protect precious biological materials – human tissue, stem cells, bone marrow, cord blood, and the like. Medical and pharmaceutical research facilities especially make use of our cryogenic refrigerators and dewars for all kinds of medical research, including the development of vaccines. Then, as you’d expect, there are the blood banks, tissue banks, hospitals, and clinics for whom such provisions are vitally important. Other PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerator and dewar customers consist of government and university research facilities as well as various biorepositories that specialize in the collection, processing, inventorying, and dissemination of biological specimens.

PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators come in various models and sizes – the better to facilitate long-term storage of liquid nitrogen and other cryogenic substances at the most advantageous temperature. The availability of various hold times, work times, evaporation rates, and other attributes means there’s a refrigerator for virtually any cryogenic demand.

Our dewars are built with vacuum-layered walls that give you unbeatable thermal insulation and thus markedly reduce the speed at which their contents – either liquid nitrogen or other cryogenic substances – are lost to evaporation.

Besides these cryogenic equipment, we also offer Denver life science industries …

  • a top-quality whisper valve for cryogenic refrigerators and dewars. This appliance installs easily on the vent valve of these vessels to near-silently alleviate the pressure of the compressed gases inside. Result? Less container damage and fewer lab disruptions.
  • a range of gas cylinder manifold choices including those with automatic changeover. These systems permit a continuous flow of gas while automatically changing cylinder or bank priority from the first source to an additional supply with no fluctuation in pressure.

As necessary as our cryogenic equipment is to healthcare, medicine, and biotechnology, we supply other Denver-area industries with these products as well. By way of illustration, the fabrication of high-end metal products frequently warrants the use of cryogenics. Utilities use cryogenics too – to cool wires and facilitate the smooth transmission of electric power. In the food industry, cryogenic flash-freezing helps protect food nutrients and texture over a longer shelf life. And cryogenic freezing is essential in the production of superconductors for, say, MRI machines or use in quantum computing.

Regardless of your field or application, get the preferred cryogenic equipment and gases for it from Rocky Mountain Air Solutions, your Denver PurityPlus® Partner.
