Atlanta, GA Specialty Gas Equipment Spotlight: Gas Purifiers


It won’t come as a surprise to most, but our stock in trade at Sidney Lee Medical & Scientific Gases is supplying specialty gases for commercial, industrial, medical, scientific, and agricultural use. But customers are well aware they also can depend on us for the equipment necessary to move, cache, regulate, and use those gases safely. One such category of equipment they appreciate is our line of gas purifiers.

The Atlanta, GA semiconductor industry definitely calls on us for point-of-use gas purifiers that eliminate impurities down to part-per-trillion (pptV) levels. This sort of purity is needed for manufacturing not only semiconductors but also all sorts of display, LED, and solar products.

In particular, we provide …

  • high-pressure gas purifiers, these made for use in all kinds of laboratory and industrial situations where oil or water need to be kept out of a gas to increase its efficacy and avoid 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 kinds of purifiers need to be used in combination with specially designed replaceable cartridges containing one of a host of different adsorbents. Relevant to the cartridge/adsorbent supplied, these purifiers can eliminate more than just oil and water from industrial process gases; they can also eliminate water from inert gases and saturated hydrocarbons, eliminate a variety of particulates, and eliminate water from unsaturated hydrocarbons – acetylene, for example.
  • a series of gas purifiers specifically engineered to eliminate up to 1% of oxygen from a hydrogen stream down to a level under 1 ppm. They achieve this by catalytic action. Provided the catalytic materials aren’t fouled (notably by sulfur and halogens), they’ll function pretty much forever without requiring regeneration.
