Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Columbus

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas that reeks of rotten eggs, is usually regarded as a contaminant in natural gas. It certainly does have its uses, though – which explains why Delille Oxygen Company makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at competitive prices in Columbus.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide are commonly removed from “sour” natural gas fields to cut corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, thus improving the natural gas’s heat content and transforming it to make it a more commercial product. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is most often converted to elemental sulfur by monitored 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 frequently associated in error with the smell of commercial natural gas; typically natural gas is odorized with mixtures of ethyl, propyl, and butyl mercaptan to attain the “rotten egg” smell without the corrosion hazard of Hydrogen Sulfide in a moist environment.

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