Hydrogen Sulfide Gas (H2S)

What is H2S?

PurityPlus®  carries compressed hydrogen sulfide gas at a variety of concentrations and purities. Hydrogen sulfide (H₂S), is a flammable, colorless, foul-smelling gas that is commonly viewed as a natural gas contaminant.

Large amounts of hydrogen sulfide are typically extracted from “sour” natural gas fields in attempt to minimize corrosion to enhance the natural gas’s heat content and make it more commercially feasible. Generally, the hydrogen sulfide that is corrected is then converted to elemental sulfur through the process of regulated oxidation. Smaller quantities of hydrogen sulfide are then dried and purified to be sold commercially.

Hydrogen sulfide uses 

In the specialty gas marketplace, there are many hydrogen sulfide uses. Hydrogen sulfide is frequently an element in calibration gases for environmental emission and industrial hygiene monitoring in the ppm range.
