Afrox’s Specialised Markets division will be showcasing its range of high purity calibration gases, specialised regulators and tailor-made installation packages at Lab Africa in Johannesburg from 15 to 17 August.
Laboratories are under growing pressure to not only stay abreast of the latest analytical methods, but also manage costs through efficiency gains. In response, Afrox is committed to helping customers meet their productivity aims by delivering precisely what they need, when and where they need it.
Unique products and services
This year’s exhibition will see the Afrox Specialised Markets Division showcasing its customised solutions for laboratories from manufacture and supply to installation, backed by technical expertise gained through decades of experience in the gases industry.
Andisha Dukkan, head of Specialised Markets at Afrox, says the specialised gases division is unique in its service offering. ‘We have our own local manufacturer of the scientific range of regulators and can, therefore, vouch for their high quality and reliability. Afrox is a member of the international Linde Group and if a customer cannot source what they are looking for amongst our made-to-order gas mixtures, we can still procure it for them through our association with Linde,’ she comments.
The company’s high-purity speciality gases form part of its HiQ range and are available with precision-engineered supply products and expert, efficiency-aware services. These services also cover the optional installation of all the necessary cylinders, pipes, fittings and regulators straight into customers’ laboratory space. In addition, all of Afrox’s gases and gas mixtures are certified to the highest standards of purity and quality.
Information and knowledge sharing
Afrox will also use Lab Africa as a platform to highlight its training programmes. These include the Laboratory Gas Safety Course, which equips learners with a broad field of knowledge on the following:
- Understanding the manufacturing and filling process of gas cylinders
- The properties and relationships of high-quality gas
- Associated hazards and necessary precautions.
Important practical information such as the difference between single and multi-stage regulators, correct protective clothing, and plans in the event of an emergency are also covered in the course.
