Riverside Specialty Gas Equipment Spotlight: Gas Purifiers


Here at Elite Air, PurityPlus® specialty gases for commercial, industrial, medical, scientific, and agricultural use are what we’re primarily known for selling. But customers know they also can count on us for the equipment necessary to ship, cache, monitor, and use those gases safely. One such type of equipment they really appreciate is our line of gas purifiers.

The Riverside semiconductor industry definitely comes to us for point-of-use gas purifiers that remove impurities down to part-per-trillion (pptV) levels. This kind of purity is needed for making not only semiconductors but also [[various display, LED, and solar products.

Specifically, we supply …

  • high-pressure gas purifiers, these models made for use in all kinds of laboratory and industrial projects where oil or water need to be kept out of a gas in order to boost its usefulness and reduce the possibility of equipment shutdown.
  • gas purifiers that, while much like our high-pressure models, are made to take care of higher capacities at a reduced working pressure.
Note that these two types of purifiers need to be used along with specially made replaceable cartridges containing one of various adsorbents. Depending on the cartridge/adsorbent supplied, these purifiers can exclude more than just oil and water from industrial process gases; they’re also capable of excluding water from inert gases and saturated hydrocarbons, excluding various particulates, and excluding water from unsaturated hydrocarbons – acetylene, for instance.
  • a series of gas purifiers specially engineered to remove up to 1% of oxygen from a hydrogen stream down to a level under 1 ppm. They achieve this by catalytic action. If the catalytic materials aren’t tainted (especially by sulfur and halogens), they’ll work indefinitely and not require regeneration.
