Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Beaumont

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas with the odor of rotten eggs, is typically regarded as a contaminant in natural gas. It certainly does have its uses, though – which is the reason Coastal Welding Supply makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at competitive prices in Beaumont.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide are commonly 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 suitable for commercial sale. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is generally converted to elemental sulfur by controlled oxidation. Relatively small quantities of H₂S are further dried and purified for commerce.

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

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