Ensuring Superior-Quality Gases for Gas Chromatography


Since the time gas chromatography was {{introduced well over a century ago, it’s become a crucial analytical tool in certain industries, the pharmaceutical and food industries among the central ones. Face it: hardly any other techniques for breaking up and analyzing the components of chemical mixtures are as uncomplicated, as effectual, or as precise. Nowadays, gas chromatography is universal in the quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex chemical mixtures and the purification of chemical compounds. It’s also generally used to control industrial processes and in the quality-control testing of products.

Of course, the carrier gases necessary for gas chromatography, besides having to be either inert or unreactive, must be at least 99.995% pure – more, in some instances! And that’s where Wright Brothers really makes a difference. Now, it’s true, we haven’t been here as long as gas chromatography. But, as an esteemed PurityPlus® partner producer-distributor, we’ve been providing chemical researchers and various industries with carrier gases of the maximum purity attainable for quite a while now. We guarantee it, too. Why? Because Wright Brothers, like all of the 600 PurityPlus® partner gas production facilities throughout the country, is thoroughly inspected and certified every year by a trusted independent third-party agency. Our Cincinnati customers will vouch for the purity we deliver.

Which carrier gas we deliver – helium (He), argon (Ar), nitrogen (N2), carbon dioxide (CO2), or hydrogen (H2), mainly – is subject to the type of detector used and the chemical components being examined. Usually, we offer gases fitting for…

  • Thermal Conductivity Detectors,
  • Flame Ionization Detectors,
  • Electron Capture Detectors,
  • Helium Ionization Detectors,
  • Flame Photometric Detectors,
  • Photo Ionization Detectors,
  • GC-Mass Spectrometry,
  • High-Frequency Discharge Detectors,
  • Discharge Ionization Detectors, and
  • Ultrasonic Detectors

Our Cincinnati customers also depend on us providing the carrier gases they need when they need them. Local availability further means that our customers have quick access to our technical proficiency and can better foster the kind of close relationship with us that meets the goals of both parties.
