Hydrogen Supplier to Winona

We have knowledge of hydrogen (H2) as the most lightweight gas, and respect it for its extremely low ignition energy requirement and its invisible flame when burning in the open. With its low liquid density and a liquid temperature only exceeded by helium, with suitable equipment it may be liquefied and carried over great distances. Hydrogen holds great promise as a potential clean energy source as its combustion doesn’t release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Historically, creation of commercial hydrogen utilized electrolytic cells, generating high purity hydrogen and high purity oxygen. As electricity costs have increased, most hydrogen is now produced by steam reformation of natural gas (conversion of methane to hydrogen and carbon monoxide) and where demand for basic chemicals requires, as a byproduct from chlorine and caustic soda manufacturing.

Most commercial hydrogen in Winona is produced and consumed in refinery operations to improve yields, changing aromatic hydrocarbons to aliphatic compounds that as a result perform as cleaner burning fuels.

High purity hydrogen can be utilized in multiple applications covering multiple industries, including: Food, Chemical Synthesis, Metal Production and Fabrication, Pharmaceuticals, Aerospace, Electronics and, interestingly enough, as a purging cooling agent in electric power generation.

PurityPlus purities reach Ultra Carrier and Research Grades with minimum purities of 99.9995 and 99.9999% respectively, as well as the more familiar Ultra High Purity at 99.999% pure. These products are most commonly used in gas chromatography, both as a carrier gas and a flame support gas for flame ionization (FID) and flame photometric (FPD) detectors commonly used for hydrocarbon and sulfur analysis.
