Beaumont Specialty Gas Equipment Spotlight: Gas Purifiers


At Coastal Welding Supply, PurityPlus® specialty gases for commercial, industrial, medical, scientific, and agricultural use are what we’re primarily known for selling. But customers know they also can rely on us for the gear needed to move, store, monitor, and use those gases safely. One such type of equipment they appreciate is our line of gas purifiers.

The Beaumont semiconductor industry especially comes to us for point-of-use gas purifiers that extract impurities down to part-per-trillion (pptV) levels. This kind of purity is imperative for manufacturing not only semiconductors but also all kinds of display, LED, and solar products.

In particular, we provide …

  • high-pressure gas purifiers, these models made for use in all kinds of laboratory and industrial circumstances where oil or water must be kept away from a gas so as to improve its effectiveness and avert equipment shutdown.
  • gas purifiers that, while much like our high-pressure models, are built to handle higher capacities at a lower working pressure.
Note that these two types of purifiers must used with specially engineered replaceable cartridges that contain one of a number of adsorbents. Depending on the cartridge/adsorbent needed, these purifiers can exclude more than oil and water from industrial process gases; they can also exclude water from inert gases and saturated hydrocarbons, exclude a variety of particulates, and exclude water from unsaturated hydrocarbons – acetylene, for example.
  • a series of gas purifiers specially engineered to remove up to 1% of oxygen from a hydrogen stream down to a level of less than 1 ppm. They accomplish this by catalytic action. Provided the catalytic materials aren’t contaminated (especially by sulfur and halogens), they’ll work pretty much permanently and not need regeneration.
