Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Sioux Falls

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas that reeks of rotten eggs, is usually considered a contaminant in natural gas. It certainly does have its uses, in any event – which is why A-OX Welding Supply makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at affordable prices in Sioux Falls.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide can be ”pulled” from “sour” natural gas fields to cut corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, thereby improving the natural gas’s heat content and transforming it to make it more suitable for commercial sale. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is most typically converted to elemental sulfur via regulated oxidation. Relatively small quantities of H₂S are subsequently dried and purified for commercial sale.

Hydrogen Sulfide is sometimes used to produce metal sulfides and as a reactive gas for synthesizing high-purity mercaptans. It is frequently associated erroneously with the odor of commercial natural gas; normally 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 application.

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