Cincinnati Specialty Gas Equipment Spotlight: Gas Purifiers


At Wright Brothers, PurityPlus® specialty gases for commercial, industrial, medical, scientific, and agricultural use are our stock in trade. But customers know they also can depend on us for everything needed to ship, cache, monitor, and work with those gases safely. One such kind of equipment they truly go for is our line of gas purifiers.

The Cincinnati semiconductor industry especially looks to us for point-of-use gas purifiers that eliminate impurities down to part-per-trillion (pptV) levels. This degree of purity is indispensable for manufacturing not only semiconductors but also [[various display, LED, and solar products.

In particular, we supply …

  • high-pressure gas purifiers, these models made for use in all sorts of laboratory and industrial projects where oil or water need to be excluded from a gas so as to improve its usefulness and avert equipment shutdown.
  • gas purifiers that, while much like our high-pressure models, are built to take care of higher capacities at a reduced working pressure.
Both of the above must used along with specially made replaceable cartridges containing one of various adsorbents. Depending on the cartridge/adsorbent provided, these purifiers can exclude more than just oil and water from industrial process gases; they can also exclude water from inert gases and saturated hydrocarbons, exclude a variety of particulates, and exclude water from unsaturated hydrocarbons – acetylene, for example.
  • a series of gas purifiers specifically engineered to remove up to 1% of oxygen from a hydrogen stream down to a level lower than 1 ppm. They achieve this by catalytic action. If the catalytic materials aren’t corrupted (particularly by sulfur and halogens), they’ll function indefinitely and not require regeneration.

If you’d like to get hold of  reliable gas purifiers for your Cincinnati operation, consult with Wright Brothers, your local PurityPlus® specialty gas supplier today. Remember: specialty gases aren’t our only specialty!
