Supplier of Specialty Gases and Chemicals to the Pittsburgh Electronics Industry

The global electronics industry has grown dramatically over the past forty years, and specialty gases have to be credited for much of that growth – as much in Pittsburgh as in others cities around the globe. To be sure, the semiconductor industry as a whole needs gases and chemicals of extremely high purity. They give the pure silicon that’s used in semiconductor-based microprocessors the distinctive properties necessary for running new watches, smart phones, and computers.

Just as crucial a point, the drawing of fiber optic cable also necessitates a protective atmosphere of high-purity helium. As fiber optic cable replaces the more familiar “twisted pair” copper wire and coaxial cable, the amount of high-purity helium allocated for the fiber cable production process keeps rising. When liquefied, helium turns into a low-temperature coolant that delivers superconductivity to the magnets utlized in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as well as to superconducting wire that weakens normal electrical resistance and promises to allow the more-efficient dissemination of electricity.  

To promote semiconductor research, PurityPlus® manufactures pure gases in VLSI, research, and electronic grades of nitrogen, helium, argon, and hydrogen. We also can manufacture research quantities of high-purity reactive gases in combinations comprising silane, phosphine, diborane, and arsine. Additionally, we can produce specialty fluorocarbons, hydrogen chloride, ammonia, and ultra-high-purity oxygen for etching. These are but a few of the gases available.

Greco Gas also provides Pittsburgh manufacturers with the full PurityPlus® line of gas equipment including low dead-volume regulators, gas cabinets, and monitoring systems. We have all the products you use, usually in the lesser volumes more suitable for research and development. Not only that, but you’ll be happy to know that every product we make meets every applicable industry regulation and expectation.

Our customers include companies in the following industries:

  • Semiconductor (Memory Chip manufacturing)
  • Photovoltaics (Solar)
  • Light Emitting Diode (LED)
  • Flat Panel Display (FPD TV)
  • Fiber Optics
  • Superconductivity Research
