Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Denver

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas with the odor of rotten eggs, is usually considered a contaminant in natural gas. It does indeed have its uses, however – which is why Rocky Mountain Air Solutions makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at competitive prices in Denver.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide can be removed from “sour” natural gas fields to reduce corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, thus improving the natural gas’s heat content and rendering it more commercially viable. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is most often converted to elemental sulfur by regulated oxidation. Relatively small quantities of H₂S are then dried and purified for commercial sale.

Hydrogen Sulfide may be used to create metal sulfides and as a reactive gas in the synthesis of high-purity mercaptans. It is often associated in error with the smell of commercial natural gas; typically natural gas is odorized with mixtures of ethyl, propyl, and butyl mercaptan to provide the “rotten egg” smell without the corrosion hazard of Hydrogen Sulfide in a moist application.

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