Mississippi Welders Supply Co., Inc. is a major source for PurityPlus® research-grade oxygen. It’s been christened Oxygen 5.0. With a 99.999% purity ranking, it’s the finest grade of oxygen PurityPlus® turns out. That makes it perfect for use in all sorts of critical Winona laboratory and industrial applications.

In laboratories, PurityPlus® Oxygen 5.0 is normally employed as either a bleaching or an oxidizing agent, as a combustible for flame ionization detectors, and wherever analytical or developmental applications profit in a big way from oxygen of such purity.
