Supplier of Specialty Gases and Chemicals to the Sioux Falls Electronics Industry

The worldwide electronics industry has grown remarkably over the last forty years, and specialty gases have been instrumental in that growth – here in Sioux Falls as well as wordwide. As insiders know, the entire semiconductor industry is heavily reliant on gases and chemicals of extremely high purity. They give the pure silicon that’s essential to semiconductor-based microprocessors the unique properties necessary for running today’s watches, smart phones, and computers.

Just as crucial a point, the drawing of fiber optic cable also requires a protective atmosphere of high-purity helium. As fiber optic cable is used increasingly in place of outmoded “twisted pair” copper wire and coaxial cable, the volume of high-purity helium committed to the fiber cable fabricating process keeps rising. When liquefied, helium turns into a low-temperature coolant that provides superconductivity to the magnets utlized in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as well as to superconducting wire that weakens normal electrical resistance and promises to enable the more-efficient distribution of electricity.  

To promote semiconductor research, PurityPlus® manufactures pure gases in VLSI, research, and electronic grades of nitrogen, helium, argon, and hydrogen. We also can deliver research quantities of high-purity reactive gases in combinations incorporating silane, phosphine, diborane, and arsine. Additionally, we can make specialty fluorocarbons, hydrogen chloride, ammonia, and ultra-high-purity oxygen for etching. These are just a sample of the gases available.

A-OX Welding Supply additionally provides Sioux Falls manufacturers with the comprehensive PurityPlus® catalog of gas equipment including low dead-volume regulators, gas cabinets, and monitoring systems. We can, in short, provide all the products you demand, typically in the reduced quantities better suited to research and development. And you’ll be happy to know that every product we make meets every applicable industry requirement and expectation.
