Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Pittsburgh

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas with the odor of rotten eggs, is typically considered a contaminant in natural gas. It certainly does have its uses, however – which explains why Greco Gas makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at affordable prices in Pittsburgh.

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

Hydrogen Sulfide may be used to form metal sulfides and as a reactive gas to synthesize high-purity mercaptans. It is frequently associated by mistake with the smell 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 often a component in calibration gases for environmental emission and industrial hygiene monitoring in the parts per million (ppm) range.
