Air Products is a key player when it comes to innovation and technology and a prime example of this is the supply of liquid nitrogen to their customer Cryozone for the process of cryotherapy. This intensive cold treatment, which was initially designed to treat circulatory diseases, has been adapted for use in rapid sport recovery and rehabilitation. Air Products provided the liquid nitrogen to Cryozone for the exhibition at the Cape Town Cycle Tour, which took place in Cape Town on Sunday 11 March 2018.
The cryochamber is cooled using liquid nitrogen, but clients do not come in direct contact with the gas. Cryozone provided cyclists and visitors at the event with an opportunity to experience what cryotherapy is all about.
Air Products, a leader in the industrial gas market, is known for its quality products, outstanding customer service and ways of improving the service offerings through the use of technology and innovation. Air Products has the ability to provide liquid product to customers’ sites via CryoEase, which is a useful alternative to cylinders.
Nita Muller, Regional Sales Manager in the Western Cape comments: “Air Products’ role in cryotherapy proves that besides supply of gas for industrial applications, product can be supplied for medical, food and beverage and other specialized applications which require specialty gas. The use of gas in the cryotherapy process adds another exciting aspect to our gas products”.
