Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Winona

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas that reeks of rotten eggs, is typically considered a contaminant in natural gas. It certainly does have its uses, in any event – which is why Mississippi Welders Supply Co., Inc. makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at affordable prices in Winona.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide can be removed from “sour” natural gas fields to limit corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, thus improving the natural gas’s heat content and rendering it more suitable for commercial sale. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is most often converted to elemental sulfur by means of regulated oxidation. Relatively small quantities of H₂S are then dried and purified for commerce.

Hydrogen Sulfide can be used to form metal sulfides and as a reactive gas for synthesizing high-purity mercaptans. It is frequently associated in error with the smell of commercial natural gas; usually 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 environment.

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