Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Albany

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas with the odor of rotten eggs, is usually considered a contaminant in natural gas. It does indeed have its uses, though – which is why Noble Gas Solutions makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at affordable prices in Albany.

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

Hydrogen Sulfide may be used to produce metal sulfides and as a reactive gas to synthesize high-purity mercaptans. It is often associated by mistake with the distinctive “perfume” of commercial natural gas; typically natural gas is odorized with mixtures of ethyl, propyl, and butyl mercaptan to create the “rotten egg” smell without the corrosion hazard of Hydrogen Sulfide in a moist application.

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