Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Springfield

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas that reeks of rotten eggs, is usually regarded as a contaminant in natural gas. It does indeed have its uses, though – which explains why ILMO Products Company makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at reasonable prices in Springfield.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide are commonly ”pulled” from “sour” natural gas fields to cut corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, thereby improving the natural gas’s heat content and rendering it more commercially viable. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is most typically converted to elemental sulfur by means of regulated oxidation. Relatively small quantities of H₂S are further dried and purified for commercial sale.

Hydrogen Sulfide may be used to produce metal sulfides and as a reactive gas to synthesize high-purity mercaptans. It is often associated by mistake with the distinctive “perfume” of commercial natural gas; typically 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 market, H₂S is frequently a component in calibration gases for environmental emission and industrial hygiene control in the parts per million (ppm) range.
