Denver Specialty Gas Equipment Spotlight: Gas Purifiers


It’s no secret that our primary business at Rocky Mountain Air Solutions is supplying specialty gases for commercial, industrial, medical, scientific, and agricultural use. But customers recognize they also can depend on us for the equipment necessary to move, cache, monitor, and work with those gases safely. One such category of equipment they really appreciate is our line of gas purifiers.

The Denver semiconductor industry especially calls on us for point-of-use gas purifiers that remove impurities down to part-per-trillion (pptV) levels. This sort of purity is needed for producing not only semiconductors but also a variety of display, LED, and solar products.

To be specific, we provide …

  • high-pressure gas purifiers, these models built for use in all types of laboratory and industrial situations where oil or water need to be kept out of a gas to increase its efficacy and reduce the possibility of equipment shutdown.
  • gas purifiers that, while much like our high-pressure models, are engineered to deal with higher capacities at a reduced working pressure.
Note that these two kinds of purifiers must used along with specially made replaceable cartridges that hold one of a number of adsorbents. As determined by the cartridge/adsorbent required, these purifiers can remove more than just oil and water from industrial process gases; they can also remove water from inert gases and saturated hydrocarbons, remove a variety of particulates, and remove water from unsaturated hydrocarbons – acetylene, for example.
  • a series of gas purifiers specifically engineered to remove up to 1% of oxygen from a hydrogen stream down to a level under 1 ppm. They achieve this by catalytic action. If the catalytic materials aren’t corrupted (especially by sulfur and halogens), they’ll work pretty much forever without requiring regeneration.
