PurityPlus® Grade 6.0 Gases by SYOXSA, Inc.: Increased Production, Increased Cost Savings

Critical gas customers are adamant about having high-quality Carrier Gases for chromatography and any application involving analytics. Offering these gases ought to be second-nature to any specialty gas vendor. In the last forty years, give or take, both the detection limits of common technology and evolving analytical methods have quite expectedly expanded the utility of these gases significantly. The gas specifications that served 1970s needs well enough may be inadequate as this century unfolds. Meeting and exceeding ever new specs makes necessary a continual investment by the gas supplier – in instrumentation and purification equipment, in tutelage to coax maximum performance from these agents, and in frequent review, testing, and affirmation of manufacturing and quality processes. So that we can continue anticipating your needs, we’re always improving our ability to manufacture and certify the gases essential to your ever expanding applications.

Have you given any thought recently to your gas buys and what you’re measuring? Have you properly considered just how important it is to seek out the highest-purity gas your budget allows? Let’s examine the PurityPlus Specifications.

PurityPlus Helium,         UHP, 5.0                        Ultra Carrier, 5.5                       Chromatographic, 6.0

Minimum Purity            99.999%                        99.9995%                                  99.9999%

Oxygen                        < 2 ppm                       < 1 ppm                                   < 0.5 ppm

Moisture                       < 2 ppm                       < 1 ppm                                   < 1 ppm

Hydrocarbons              <0.5 ppm                     < 0.5 ppm                                < 0.2 ppm

Nitrogen                                                          < 4 ppm                                   < 1 ppm

Carbon Monoxide                                                                                           < 0.1 ppm

Carbon Dioxide                                                                                               <0.1 ppm

What’s it all mean? If you’re doing process measurement with components in percentage ranges, 5.0 gases are generally sufficient. If you’re measuring impurities in the 10–1,000 ppm range, you’ll realize a flatter baseline and more accurate measurements using 5.5 gases. And if you’re doing contaminant detection and quantification below 10 ppm, you’d be better served using 6.0. That said, it isn’t merely about addressing standards. It’s also about our process. Are your cylinders pre-treated to prevent later contamination from sidewall corrosion and degassing? Ours are. Are the instruments used to affirm these specifications cyclically calibrated using traceable standards? Ours are. And can this calibration be documented? Ours can.
