This does not include city gas (coal gas for domestic use) and LP gas that are mainly used for household energy. Medical gases used in hospitals are included among industrial gases.

Supplying methods of industrial gases

Gas Cylinde

The starting point of Air Water's gas business was gas supply using cylinders. We have established a stable supply system for gas cylinders that allows us to deliver each one of these cylinders to our customers by our own hands through our supply network.

Tank Truck

Gas produced at manufacturing factories is delivered to our customers throughout Japan by liquefied gas lorries and gas trailers. With our integrated production-to- sales system based on our infrastructure, we promise to provide a reliable and safe gas supply.


Through our on-site gas supply systems in which we manufacture gas near our customers' plants and deliver it as it is generated, we serve the needs of our customers who are constantly in need of a large amount of industrial gas. We have various types of manufacturing systems, including cryogenic air separation systems, and gas adsorption separation systems operating at room temperature.
