Hydrogen Supplier to Riverside

We understand hydrogen (H2) as the most lightweight gas, and respect it for its extremely low ignition energy requirement and its clear flame when burning outdoors. With its low liquid density and a liquid temperature just less than helium, with suitable equipment it may be liquefied and carried over great distances. Hydrogen holds incredible promise as a potential clean energy source as its combustion doesn’t release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

In the past, creation of commercial hydrogen utilized electrolytic cells, generating high purity hydrogen and high purity oxygen. Since electricity now costs so much, most hydrogen is now created 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 Riverside is produced and consumed in refinery operations to improve yields, changing aromatic hydrocarbons to aliphatic compounds that in turn perform as cleaner burning fuels.

High purity hydrogen finds use 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.
