Guaranteeing Finest-Quality Gases for Gas Chromatography


Since the time gas chromatography was {{introduced well over a century ago, it’s become an indispensable analytical tool in many industries, the pharmaceutical and food industries among the primary ones. Face it: hardly any other techniques for breaking up and analyzing the components of chemical mixtures are as simple, as effectual, or as precise. Anymore, gas chromatography is used virtually everywhere in the quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex chemical mixtures and the purification of chemical compounds. It’s also extensively used to monitor industrial processes and in the quality-control testing of products.

Of course, the carrier gases necessary for gas chromatography, besides having to be either inert or unreactive, must be at least 99.995% pure – higher, occasionally! And that’s where Delille Oxygen Company comes in. Now, it’s true, we haven’t been here as long as gas chromatography. But, as a trusted PurityPlus® partner producer-distributor, we’ve been providing chemical researchers and assorted industries with carrier gases of the maximum purity feasible for a good, long time now. We guarantee it, too. Why? Because Delille Oxygen Company, like all of the 600 PurityPlus® partner gas production facilities across the country, is carefully inspected and certified per annum by a trusted independent third-party outfit. Our Columbus customers will corroborate the purity we deliver.

Which carrier gas we deliver – helium (He), argon (Ar), nitrogen (N2), carbon dioxide (CO2), or hydrogen (H2), primarily – is subject to the type of detector in use and the chemical components being assessed. Typically, we produce gases appropriate for…

  • Thermal Conductivity Detectors,
  • Flame Ionization Detectors,
  • Electron Capture Detectors,
  • Helium Ionization Detectors,
  • Flame Photometric Detectors,
  • Photo Ionization Detectors,
  • GC-Mass Spectrometry,
  • High-Frequency Discharge Detectors,
  • Discharge Ionization Detectors, and
  • Ultrasonic Detectors

Our Columbus customers also rely on us delivering the carrier gases they need when they need them. Local availability means too that our customers have quick access to our technical know-how and can better foster the kind of personal relationship with us that fulfills the interests of both parties.
