Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Cincinnati

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas that smells like rotten eggs, is normally considered a contaminant in natural gas. It most definitely has its uses, in any event – which explains why Wright Brothers makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at competitive prices in Cincinnati.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide can be extracted from “sour” natural gas fields to cut corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, which improves the natural gas’s heat content and transforming it to make it more commercially viable. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is most typically converted to elemental sulfur by regulated oxidation. Relatively small quantities of H₂S are subsequently dried and purified for the commercial market.

Hydrogen Sulfide is sometimes used to form metal sulfides and as a reactive gas in the synthesis of high-purity mercaptans. It is often associated erroneously with the smell of commercial natural gas; typically natural gas is odorized with mixtures of ethyl, propyl, and butyl mercaptan to create the “rotten egg” smell without the corrosion hazard of Hydrogen Sulfide in a moist application.

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