Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Mexico

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas that smells like rotten eggs, is usually viewed as a contaminant in natural gas. It certainly does have its uses, though – which is the reason Criogas makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at competitive prices in Mexico.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide are commonly extracted from “sour” natural gas fields to cut corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, thereby improving the natural gas’s heat content and rendering it more suitable for commercial sale. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is generally converted to elemental sulfur by controlled 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 for synthesizing high-purity mercaptans. It is commonly associated in error with the smell of commercial natural gas; normally natural gas is odorized with mixtures of ethyl, propyl, and butyl mercaptan to attain the “rotten egg” smell without the corrosion hazard of Hydrogen Sulfide in a moist application.

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