 AIRCO GASES UNVEILS NEW AUTOMOTIVE INSPECTION/MAINTENANCE GASES
 FOR ACCURACY IN AUTO EMISSION TESTING
 MURRAY HILL, N.J., Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Airco Gases today announced it has launched a new line of Automotive Inspection/ Maintenance (I/M) gases, designed to help states in their expanding efforts to monitor motor vehicle emissions. State and regional inspection stations rely on I/M mixtures to ensure the accuracy of equipment used to test tailpipe exhaust systems for emissions.
 Commenting on the increased demand for I/M gases, Airco Special Gases general manager, Milo Schaefer, said, "The driving force is the Clean Air Act." He noted that the recent enactment of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments further restricts allowable emission levels of ambient air pollutants, including carbon monoxide and ozone. Regions of the country that do not meet federal air quality guidelines for carbon monoxide or ozone must implement I/M programs. Such programs require that motor vehicles pass periodic tailpipe emission inspections; vehicles that fail must undergo maintenance and reinspection.
 In addressing the I/M market, Airco offers the assurance of its long-established and wide-ranging experience in gas technology, as well as special expertise in product development for environmental monitoring.
 Airco has been qualified by the State of California's Bureau of Automotive Repair, recognized as a leader in developing comprehensive quality program assurance standards using Environmental Protection Agency guidelines. This qualification is widely regarded as a prerequisite for participation in I/M programs in other states.
 In addition, Airco is well-positioned to meet the needs of customers through its nationwide network of 675 industrial gas sales and distribution outlets, the industry's largest. Potential customers for Airco's I/M product line include state and contracted inspection stations, independent garages, city and state mass transit, rental fleets, and foreign-car importers.
 Airco I/M gases are calibration mixtures containing carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and propane in nitrogen or nitric oxide in nitrogen. Airco's I/M products are available in disposable 212-liter cylinders and in high-pressure aluminum cylinders.
 Airco Gases is a leading manufacturer and supplier of industrial gases and gas handling technology in the United States. The company's primary gas products include cryogenic and non-cryogenic nitrogen and oxygen, as well as argon, carbon dioxide, helium, hydrogen and a variety of medical, rare and special gases.
 Airco is a member of The BOC Group, the worldwide gases and healthcare company operating in more than 60 countries and with sales last year of $5.2 billion.
