Compressed Gas Proportioners, Oxygen-Nitrous Oxide

Definition : Compressed gas proportioners designed to mix compressed nitrous oxide (N2O) and oxygen (O2) to achieve nitrous oxide concentrations adjustable up to 70 percent at either high- or low-output flows. Typically, the device receives nitrous oxide and oxygen from the hospital gas pipeline or from compressed gas sources. These proportioners are usually equipped with a pressure-regulating mechanism; connectors for the primary gas sources and the delivery of the blended gas; and an alarm that signals if the oxygen content is below 25 percent. The mixed gas output can be delivered to patients at low flows ranging from 3 L/min to more than 30 L/min. N2O/O2 proportioners are frequently used in combination with flowmeters, tubing, and masks for administration of analgesia in oral surgery, dentistry, obstetrics, and other clinical procedures.

United States Welding Inc

Company Type: Parent

The United States Welding Works Company began as a partnership in 1924 by Charles Lofgren and Adam Schmick. The original, small store was located in downtown Denver. The two men specialized in welding, which at that time included anything from difficult welding jobs to receiving parts and machinery in need of repair from all over the Rocky Mountain Region.
