Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Auburn

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas that smells like rotten eggs, is usually considered a contaminant in natural gas. It most definitely has its uses, though – which is why Spec Air Specialty Gases makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at affordable prices in Auburn.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide are often removed from “sour” natural gas fields to limit corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, thereby improving the natural gas’s heat content and rendering it more commercially viable. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is most typically converted to elemental sulfur by controlled oxidation. Relatively small quantities of H₂S are subsequently dried and purified for the commercial market.

Hydrogen Sulfide is sometimes used to form metal sulfides and as a reactive gas for synthesizing high-purity mercaptans. It is frequently associated in error with the odor of commercial natural gas; typically natural gas is odorized with mixtures of ethyl, propyl, and butyl mercaptan to provide the “rotten egg” smell without the corrosion hazard of Hydrogen Sulfide in a moist application.

In the specialty gas marketplace, H₂S is frequently a component in calibration gases for environmental emission and industrial hygiene regulation in the parts per million (ppm) range.
