Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Riverside

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas that smells like rotten eggs, is typically considered a contaminant in natural gas. It most definitely has its uses, however – which explains why Elite Air makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at affordable prices in Riverside.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide are often ”pulled” from “sour” natural gas fields to limit corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, thus improving the natural gas’s heat content and transforming it to make it a more commercial product. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is most often converted to elemental sulfur by controlled 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 frequently associated in error with the smell of commercial natural gas; typically natural gas is odorized with mixtures of ethyl, propyl, and butyl mercaptan to provide the “rotten egg” smell without the corrosion hazard of Hydrogen Sulfide in a moist setting.

In the specialty gas field, H₂S is commonly a component in calibration gases for environmental emission and industrial hygiene regulation in the parts per million (ppm) range.
