St. Louis Specialty Gas Equipment Spotlight: Gas Purifiers


At Cee Kay Supply, Inc., 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 ship, stock, regulate, and use those gases safely. One such category of equipment they really value is our line of gas purifiers.

The St. Louis semiconductor industry definitely calls on us for point-of-use gas purifiers that eliminate impurities down to part-per-trillion (pptV) levels. This kind of purity is imperative for manufacturing not only semiconductors but also [[various display, LED, and solar products.

To be specific, we offer …

  • high-pressure gas purifiers, these constructed for use in all sorts of laboratory and industrial projects where oil or water must be segregated from a gas to increase its utility and circumvent equipment shutdown.
  • gas purifiers that, while similar to our high-pressure models, are designed to deal with higher capacities at a reduced working pressure.
Note that these two types of purifiers need to be used in combination with specially made replaceable cartridges containing one of various adsorbents. Subject to the cartridge/adsorbent provided, these purifiers can eliminate more than simply oil and water from industrial process gases; they also have the ability to eliminate water from inert gases and saturated hydrocarbons, eliminate many particulates, and eliminate water from unsaturated hyrocarbons, such as acetylene.
  • a series of gas purifiers specially made to exclude up to 1% of oxygen from a hydrogen stream down to a level under 1 ppm. They achieve this by catalytic action. If the catalytic materials aren’t contaminated (especially by sulfur and halogens), they’ll perform pretty much forever without requiring regeneration.
