MIJA specialty gases

Have you ever gone deep-sea diving, had an MRI or used a cell phone? Then you have high purity specialty gases to thank for that. What are Specialty Gases? High purity gases like Helium, Nitrogen, or Oxygen, as well as other valuable gases, are what many refer to as specialty gases. Specialty gases are rare or ultra-high purity gases that consist of one single gas or a gas mixture containing components at high concentrations. They are closely scrutinized for purity from the percent range down to part per billion and sometimes even part per trillion (99.995 percent min. purity to 99.99999% ) as they are usedRead More →

When most people think of counterfeit, the first thing that comes to mind is money. But in reality, counterfeiting is a more complex issue than you’d think. Counterfeit goods are generally made from lower quality components, in an attempt to sell a cheap imitation of similar goods produced by brands consumers know and trust but tend to miss on minor details. Understanding this can help consumers spot the difference.  MIJA’s gauges are no different. Importance of a Genuine MIJA Gauge Pressure gauges serve several purposes within a variety of industries. The monitoring of gas pressure is a safety precaution and MIJA takes that responsibility very seriously. WhereasRead More →

I recently came across an article online by Patient Safety Solutions that went on to describe a product as “sorely needed”.  As I continued to read the article I was surprised to learn that they were talking about our product, the Critical Alert, low oxygen alarms.  Oxygen Tank Monitoring Oxygen tank monitoring is one of the many challenges hospital and nursing home staff face daily. While accidents resulting from oxygen tanks rarely occur, when they do, it can be very costly for the health of the patient and the facility, making it critical that patients’ tanks are monitored regularly to avoid unnecessary risks and adverseRead More →

Are you prepared? It seems like every time I turn on the news, I hear about another car catching on fire. As someone who works within the life safety industry, I feel the need to share the importance of having a fire extinguisher in your car. While it is not required on all vehicles, given the risk, drivers should consider investing in a car fire extinguisher. Only certain vehicle classes are legally required to carry fire extinguishers, but extinguishers give personal vehicle owners peace of mind and sense of preparedness. Vehicle fire statistics According to the most recent figures from the U.S. Fire Administration, firefighters responded toRead More →

oxygen Bar

For centuries, people have spent their Friday nights looking for the hottest watering hole, now many are bellying up to an oxygen bar for the chance to sniff oxygen. Is it healthy or just hype? We have become a society of shallow breathers, causing us to become oxygen deprived. Research has shown this habit of shallow breathing affects us in many ways. Some may notice an increase in fatigue, loss of concentration, and even muscle cramps, caused by our shallow breathing.  Focusing on your breathing can have a significant impact on your stress level and can create physical changes such as lowering your blood pressure.Read More →

bus saftey

Bus transportation is regarded as one of the safest modes of public transportation and is used by millions of passengers who ride it every day for a variety of purposes. However, bus fires can start due to any number of reasons but the causes generally fall into three distinct categories: electrical, friction at the wheel level, and engine component failures.
