Xenon, Xe Specialty Gas

Xenon gas is odorless, colorless, tasteless, nontoxic, and chemically inert. The concentration of Xenon gas in the atmosphere, by volume percent, is 8.7 x 10⁻⁶. It’s principally shipped and used in gaseous form for excimer lasers, window insulation, ion propulsion, medical applications and R&D laboratory research. Xenon gas is also used in lamps that produce intense, extremely short flashes of light, such as stroboscopes and lights for high-speed photography. When a charge of electricity is passed through the gas at low pressure, it emits a flash of bluish-white light; at higher pressures white light resembling daylight is emitted.

Safety Requirements: The cryogenic liquid will rapidly boil to the gas at standard temperatures and pressures. The liquefied gas can cause frostbite to any contaminated tissue. The main health hazard associated with release of this gas is asphyxiation by displacement of oxygen (see MSDS for further information).
