Nitric Oxide Supplier to Pittsburgh

Greco Gas is pleased to make PurityPlus® Nitric Oxide (NO), a colorless, nonflammable but toxic oxidizing gas, available for professional use in Pittsburgh.

Nitric Oxide is produced as a pollutant by the combustion of fossil fuels in proximity to excess oxygen. It is also created by the direct reaction of atmospheric nitrogen to oxygen during electrical storms. For the commercial market, all high-purity Nitric Oxide is produced by the oxidation of ammonia with a platinum catalyst and heat. Small amounts of NO can be produced in the laboratory by using copper to reduce diluted nitric acid.

The bulk of the Nitric Oxide created is used as an intermediate in the formulation of concentrated nitric acid. High-purity Nitric Oxide is used in calibration standards for environmental emission regulation, industrial hygiene monitors, and trace impurity analyzers. NO is also used in gas mixtures to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and is finding increasing use as well in many pharmacological research applications involving vasodilation as a means of pain reduction.
