Assuring Superior-Quality Gases for Gas Chromatography


In the years since gas chromatography was {{introduced well over a century ago, it’s become an all-important analytical tool in quite a few industries, the pharmaceutical and food industries among the chief ones. Face it: few other techniques for breaking up and analyzing the components of chemical mixtures are as simple, as effectual, or as precise. Today, gas chromatography is pervasive in the quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex chemical compositions and the purification of chemical compounds. It’s also generally used to monitor industrial processes and in the quality-control testing of products.

Of course, the carrier gases needed in gas chromatography, beyond having to be either inert or unreactive, must be at least 99.995% pure – greater than that, occasionally! And that’s where Rocky Mountain Air Solutions really proves its worth. Now, it’s true, we haven’t been around as long as gas chromatography. But, as a trusted PurityPlus® partner producer-distributor, we’ve been supplying chemical researchers and assorted industries with carrier gases of the maximum purity feasible for quite a while now. We guarantee it, too. Why? Because Rocky Mountain Air Solutions, like each one of the 600 PurityPlus® partner gas production facilities nationwide, is thoroughly inspected and certified per annum by a recognized independent third-party agency. Our Denver 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), primarily – depends on the sort of detector being used and the chemical components being evaluated. Normally, we provide gases appropriate 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 Denver customers also depend on us supplying the carrier gases they need when they need them. Local availability additionally means that our customers have quick access to our technical proficiency and can better establish the kind of close relationship with us that’s mutually beneficial.
