PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0: The Preferred Ultra-High-Purity, Research-Grade Oxygen in Minneapolis


Toll Company is a important player in manufacturing PurityPlus® research-grade oxygen. It’s identified as Oxygen 5.0. With a 99.999% purity classification, it’s the top grade of oxygen PurityPlus® produces. That tells you it’s perfectly suitable for use in all manner of critical Minneapolis laboratory and industrial applications.

In laboratories, PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0 often does duty as either a bleaching or an oxidizing agent, as a combustible for flame ionization detectors, and in applications of a markedly analytical or developmental nature that would gain significantly from oxygen of such purity.

Industrial uses for PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0 cover a lot of ground. This, to begin with, is the preeminent gas for laser-etching silicon substrates in the manufacture of semiconductors. It also figures quite often as a constituent of gas blends used to further industrial hygiene and safety.

[[Beyond that, you’ll find PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0 used to a great degree in …

  • gas welding, gas cutting, and other such industry applications;
  • the steel industry – primarily to elevate combustion temperatures in blast and open-hearth furnaces;
  • oxidation processes important to the chemical, pharmaceutical, and petroleum industries;
  • glass and ceramic manufacture;
  • pulp and paper manufacturing – mostly as a bleaching chemical in the production of high-quality bleached pulp;
  • the medical and healthcare industries – where maximum purity is critical, say, during surgery, for intensive-care treatment, and for inhalation therapy;
  • waste-water treatment plants.

There are, as you’d expect, other uses for PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0. But these are the uses to which the majority of our Minneapolis-area customers put it. Aside from the fact that we make it unreservedly available to them – wherever and whenever they need it – our customers also value the personal, localized service we provide them … as well as our uniform, highly competitive pricing.
