Nitric Oxide Supplier to Portland

Cryo-Source is proud to make PurityPlus® Nitric Oxide (NO), a colorless, nonflammable but toxic oxidizing gas, available for professional use in Portland.

Nitric Oxide is generated as a pollutant through the combustion of fossil fuels in the presence of excess oxygen. It is also generated by the direct reaction of atmospheric nitrogen to oxygen during electrical storms. Commercially, 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 majority of the Nitric Oxide produced is used as an intermediate in the formulation of concentrated nitric acid. High-purity Nitric Oxide is used in calibration standards for environmental emission monitoring, industrial hygiene monitors, and trace impurity analyzers. NO is also introduced into gas mixtures to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and is further showing up in many pharmacological research applications in which vasodilation acts as a method of pain reduction.
