Hydrogen Supplier to Springfield

We have knowledge of hydrogen (H2) as the lowest weight gas, and respect it for its exceptionally low ignition energy requirement and its inconspicuous flame when burning in air. With its low liquid density and a liquid temperature just less than helium, with suitable equipment it may be liquefied and moved great distances. Hydrogen holds significant promise as a potential clean energy source as its combustion doesn’t release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

In the past, manufacture of commercial hydrogen utilized electrolytic cells, producing high purity hydrogen and high purity oxygen. As electricity costs have increased, most hydrogen is now generated by steam reformation of natural gas (conversion of methane to hydrogen and carbon monoxide) and where demand for basic chemicals requires, as a byproduct from chlorine and caustic soda manufacturing.

Most commercial hydrogen in Springfield is produced and consumed in refinery operations to improve yields, converting aromatic hydrocarbons to aliphatic compounds that as a result perform as cleaner burning fuels.

High purity hydrogen can be utilized in diverse applications covering many industries, including: Food, Chemical Synthesis, Metal Production and Fabrication, Pharmaceuticals, Aerospace, Electronics and, strangely enough, as a purging cooling agent in electric power generation.

PurityPlus purities reach Ultra Carrier and Research Grades with minimum purities of 99.9995 and 99.9999% respectively, as well as the more familiar Ultra High Purity at 99.999% pure. These products are most commonly used in gas chromatography, both as a carrier gas and a flame support gas for flame ionization (FID) and flame photometric (FPD) detectors commonly used for hydrocarbon and sulfur analysis.
