Supplier of Specialty Gases and Chemicals to the Winona Electronics Industry

The worldwide electronics industry has hit the stratosphere as the last four decades, in particular, have streaked by, and specialty gases have certainly contributed to a fair amount of that – as much in Winona as elswhere. To be sure, the semiconductor industry as a whole needs gases and chemicals of extremely high purity. They lend unique properties to the pure sillicon that’s essential to semiconductor-based microprocessors, which people tend to expect in our ever more technologically advanced watches, smart phones, and computers.

Not to be dismissed, the drawing of fiber optic cable also needs a protective atmosphere of high-purity helium. As fiber optic cable takes over from conventional “twisted pair” copper wire and coaxial cable, the volume of high-purity helium committed to the fiber cable production process keeps growing. When liquefied, helium becomes a low-temperature coolant that delivers superconductivity to the magnets used in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as well as to superconducting wire that cuts down normal electrical resistance and looks promising as a method of distributing electricity more efficiently.  

To help sustain semiconductor research, PurityPlus® delivers 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 compounds including silane, phosphine, diborane, and arsine. Beyond that, we can produce specialty fluorocarbons, hydrogen chloride, ammonia, and ultra-high-purity oxygen for etching. These are but a few of the gases you can get from us.

Mississippi Welders Supply Co., Inc. also gives Winona manufacturers access to the complete PurityPlus® lineup of gas equipment such as low dead-volume regulators, gas cabinets, and monitoring systems. We’ve got the products you use, usually in the smaller quantities 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 standard and expectation.

Our customers include manufacturers in industies like the following:

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