Guaranteeing Finest-Quality Gases for Gas Chromatography


In the years since gas chromatography was first used well over a century ago, it’s become an all-important analytical tool in a number of industries, the pharmaceutical and food industries among the main ones. Face it: few other techniques for separating and analyzing the components of chemical mixtures are as easy, as efficacious, or as precise. Anymore, gas chromatography is used virtually everywhere in the quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex chemical blends and the purification of chemical compounds. It’s also extensively used to manage industrial processes and in the quality-control testing of products.

Of course, the carrier gases necessary for gas chromatography, aside from having to be either inert or unreactive, must be at least 99.995% pure – greater than that, on occasion! And that’s where ILMO Products Company comes in. Now, it’s true, we haven’t existed as long as gas chromatography. But, as a respected PurityPlus® partner producer-distributor, we’ve been providing chemical researchers and assorted industries with carrier gases of the finest purity feasible for ages now. We guarantee it, too. Why? Because ILMO Products Company, like all of the 600 PurityPlus® partner gas production facilities countrywide, is rigorously inspected and certified annually by a respected independent third-party agency. Our Springfield customers will confirm the purity we deliver.

Which carrier gas we deliver – helium (He), argon (Ar), nitrogen (N2), carbon dioxide (CO2), or hydrogen (H2), principally – depends on the type of detector used and the chemical components being examined. Usually, we provide 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 Springfield customers also depend on us having the carrier gases they need when they need them. Local availability further means that our customers have quick access to our technical know-how and can better foster the kind of close relationship with us that’s mutually advantageous.
