Custom Gas Solutions

We can provide the gases you need, when you need them.

No matter what your current gas use is, S.J. Smith can provide cylinder gases, medical gases, specialty gases, micro-bulk systems, laser-assist gas systems, cryogenic and technical services, plus onsite telemetry.

At S.J. Smith, we have four fill plants that are ready to service all your industrial gas needs, including nitrogen, oxygen, argon, argon mixes, helium and carbon dioxide. Our specialty gas plant in Decatur, Ill., provides customers with the highest quality, pure, mixed and custom-blended gases available. Each of our cylinders goes through a quality check before and during the fill process, inspecting the cylinder for damage to making sure the appropriate gas label is affixed, is legible and is applied correctly. Also, we can also track your cylinders through our barcode system.

Bulk and Micro-Bulk Options

When your gas usage increases to a point where high pressure or liquid cylinder solutions won’t meet your needs, S.J. Smith offers micro-bulk systems that mount permanently in small spaces.

Micro-bulk gas supply is a great way to eliminate time spent changing cylinders, managing deliveries and handling liquid cans. Another option is to install an outdoor bulk tank system at your facility, freeing up space indoors, and ensuring your gas supply is always available. With the resources of S.J. Smith and our partnership with the world’s largest gas producers, we are a primary bulk gas provider in Illinois, Iowa and northeast Missouri. S.J. Smith can install and fill liquid nitrogen (LIN), liquid oxygen (LOX) and liquid argon (LAR) bulk tanks of 300 gallons and up.

If you are changing your gas usage, or have increased usage due to new equipment, call us at 563-324-5237, or talk to your account manager today. We have the solution you’re looking for.
