Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to El Paso

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas that reeks of rotten eggs, is usually regarded as a contaminant in natural gas. It does indeed have its uses, though – which is why SYOXSA, Inc. makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at reasonable prices in El Paso.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide are often extracted from “sour” natural gas fields to cut corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, which improves the natural gas’s heat content and rendering it more commercially viable. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is most often converted to elemental sulfur via regulated oxidation. Relatively small quantities of H₂S are then dried and purified for commerce.

Hydrogen Sulfide can be used to produce metal sulfides and as a reactive gas to synthesize high-purity mercaptans. It is commonly associated erroneously with the odor of commercial natural gas; usually 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 setting.

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