Albany Specialty Gas Equipment Spotlight: Gas Purifiers


Here at Noble Gas Solutions, PurityPlus® specialty gases for commercial, industrial, medical, scientific, and agricultural use are the focus of our business. But customers have no doubt they also can rely on us for everything needed to move, cache, check on, and use those gases safely. One such category of equipment they appreciate is our line of gas purifiers.

The Albany semiconductor industry definitely looks to us for point-of-use gas purifiers that extract impurities down to part-per-trillion (pptV) levels. This degree of purity is imperative for making not only semiconductors but also all kinds of display, LED, and solar products.

In particular, we offer …

  • high-pressure gas purifiers, these models built for use in all types of laboratory and industrial research where oil or water must be kept out of a gas to enhance its utility and reduce the possibility of equipment shutdown.
  • gas purifiers that, while comparable to our high-pressure models, are designed to deal with higher capacities at a lower working pressure.
Both of the above have to be used with specially engineered replaceable cartridges that contain one of various adsorbents. As determined by the cartridge/adsorbent needed, these purifiers can exclude more than just oil and water from industrial process gases; they can also exclude water from inert gases and saturated hydrocarbons, exclude a variety of particulates, and exclude water from unsaturated hydrocarbons – acetylene, for example.
  • a series of gas purifiers specially made to eliminate up to 1% of oxygen from a hydrogen stream down to a level under 1 ppm. They achieve this by catalytic action. As long as the catalytic materials aren’t fouled (especially by sulfur and halogens), they’ll operate pretty much permanently and not need regeneration.
