Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Atlanta, GA

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas with the odor of rotten eggs, is normally regarded as a contaminant in natural gas. It certainly does have its uses, however – which is why Sidney Lee Medical & Scientific Gases makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at competitive prices in Atlanta, GA.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide can be removed from “sour” natural gas fields to reduce corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, thus improving the natural gas’s heat content and rendering it a more commercial product. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is most typically converted to elemental sulfur via controlled oxidation. Relatively small quantities of H₂S are then dried and purified for the commercial market.

Hydrogen Sulfide is sometimes used to produce metal sulfides and as a reactive gas to synthesize high-purity mercaptans. It is commonly associated by mistake with the odor 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 application.

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.
