Springfield Specialty Gas Equipment Spotlight: Gas Purifiers


It’s surely no secret that our main concern at ILMO Products Company is selling specialty gases for commercial, industrial, medical, scientific, and agricultural use. But customers recognize they also can rely on us for the gear required to move, store, check on, and work with those gases safely. One such type of equipment they really appreciate is our line of gas purifiers.

The Springfield semiconductor industry definitely comes to us for point-of-use gas purifiers that eliminate impurities down to part-per-trillion (pptV) levels. This degree of purity is imperative for fabricating not only semiconductors but also a variety of display, LED, and solar products.

To be specific, we supply …

  • high-pressure gas purifiers, these versions made for use in all types of laboratory and industrial circumstances where oil or water have to be kept out of a gas to enhance its usefulness and reduce the possibility of equipment shutdown.
  • gas purifiers that, while similar to our high-pressure models, are made to handle higher capacities at a lower working pressure.
Note that these two kinds of purifiers need to be used in combination with specially engineered replaceable cartridges containing one of a number of adsorbents. Depending on the cartridge/adsorbent ordered, these purifiers can eliminate more than oil and water from industrial process gases; they also have the ability to eliminate water from inert gases and saturated hydrocarbons, eliminate many particulates, and eliminate water from unsaturated hyrocarbons, such as acetylene.
  • a series of gas purifiers specifically engineered to remove up to 1% of oxygen from a hydrogen stream down to a level below 1 ppm. They achieve this by catalytic action. If the catalytic materials aren’t tainted (notably by sulfur and halogens), they’ll work indefinitely without requiring regeneration.
