Gas TypeCharacteristics
EGL NeonExcellent for clear red units,or for coated tubing.
EGL ArgonFor low-voltage fluorescent tubes and fluorescent lamps. Mercury required. Not recommended for outdoor use.
EGL BlueEGL’s standard mixture for warmer climates — used in clear or fluorescent-coated tubing with added mercury.
EGL K4The best for all-weather applications, from below-zero regions to the tropics. The high percentage of Ne in K4 provides the heat necessary to completely vaporize mercury under cold weather conditions. Mercury required. Proven 14 to 49% brighter than competitive cold weather gases by an independent laboratory.
EGL Flushing HeliumThe finest and safest gas for preliminary bombarding, or for flushing-out repair units.
EGL HeliumFor clear glass tubes – giving pale flesh-pink color, or – when using noviol-coated tubing, a warm gold tone. Must be used at a lower pressure than normal (4-6 mm typically).
