Specialty Gases portofolio

The specialty gas product portfolio includes a wide range of high-grade products – from liquid helium to an extensive range of pure gases and standard mixtures to gas mixtures that are specially produced to individual customer specifications. The supply options ranges from gas mixture in pressure cans to bulk supply of pure gases, from technical up to 6.0-quality. Our customers benefit from the expertise in problem solving, which the experts from Messer demonstrate in personal advice.


It is only through their application that gases become useful. For example, liquid helium is used to cool MRI’s (magnetic resonance imaging), helium gas is used as lifting gas in balloons or airships and with higher purity as carrier gas in gas chromatography. Of course, these applications place completely different demands on the product, the delivery form, the equipment used and the service provided. Messer’s experts work with the user to develop the optimal concept for each individual case.


Safety is always a top priority. Messer provides information on gas properties, the safe handling of gases and gives safety instructions. Customers using a high number of calibration gases, e.g. in a laboratory, can benefit from the online management tool myLab.
