Assuring Top-Quality Gases for Gas Chromatography


In the years since gas chromatography was {{introduced more than a century ago, it’s become a vital analytical tool in certain industries, the pharmaceutical and food industries among the main ones. Face it: hardly any other techniques for separating and analyzing the components of chemical mixtures are as effortless, as effectual, or as accurate. Anymore, gas chromatography is universal in the quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex chemical compositions and the purification of chemical compounds. It’s also widely used to control industrial processes and in the quality-control testing of products.

Of course, the carrier gases required in gas chromatography, besides having to be either inert or unreactive, must be at least 99.995% pure – higher, in some cases! And that’s where Criogas comes in. No, we haven’t been around as long as gas chromatography. But, as a trusted PurityPlus® partner producer-distributor, we’ve been furnishing chemical researchers and various industries with carrier gases of the utmost purity achievable for years now. We guarantee it, too. Why? Because Criogas, like each and every one of the 600 PurityPlus® partner gas production facilities throughout the states, is fastidiously inspected and certified annually by a respected independent third-party outfit. Our Mexico customers will attest to the purity we deliver.

Which carrier gas we deliver – helium (He), argon (Ar), nitrogen (N2), carbon dioxide (CO2), or hydrogen (H2), principally – is dependent on the kind of detector being used and the chemical components being analyzed. Typically, we provide gases suitable 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 Mexico customers also rely on us delivering the carrier gases they need when they need them. Local availability means as well that our customers have quick access to our technical know-how and can better cultivate the kind of close relationship with us that’s advantageous to both parties.
