Auburn Specialty Gas Equipment Spotlight: Gas Purifiers


It’s no secret that our primary business at Spec Air Specialty Gases is selling specialty gases for commercial, industrial, medical, scientific, and agricultural use. But customers recognize they also can count on us for everything required to move, cache, monitor, and use those gases safely. One such kind of equipment they truly go for is our line of gas purifiers.

The Auburn semiconductor industry particularly comes to us for point-of-use gas purifiers that eliminate impurities down to part-per-trillion (pptV) levels. This measure of purity is indispensable for making not only semiconductors but also [[various display, LED, and solar products.

Specifically, we offer …

  • high-pressure gas purifiers, these models made for use in all sorts of laboratory and industrial situations where oil or water need to be kept away from a gas to enhance its usefulness and avert equipment shutdown.
  • gas purifiers that, while similar to our high-pressure models, are designed to deal with higher capacities at a lower working pressure.
Each of these purifiers have to be used with specially engineered replaceable cartridges containing one of a host of different adsorbents. As determined by the cartridge/adsorbent needed, these purifiers can remove more than simply oil and water from industrial process gases; they can also remove water from inert gases and saturated hydrocarbons, remove a variety of particulates, and remove water from unsaturated hydrocarbons – acetylene, for example.
  • a series of gas purifiers specifically created to exclude up to 1% of oxygen from a hydrogen stream down to a level below 1 ppm. They do this by catalytic action. If the catalytic materials aren’t contaminated (particularly by sulfur and halogens), they’ll function pretty much forever without requiring regeneration.
