Hydrogen Sulfide Supplier to Minneapolis

Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S), a colorless, flammable, toxic gas with the odor of rotten eggs, is normally regarded as a contaminant in natural gas. It does indeed have its uses, however – which is why Toll Company makes PurityPlus® Hydrogen Sulfide available at affordable prices in Minneapolis.

High levels of Hydrogen Sulfide are often extracted from “sour” natural gas fields to limit corrosion in collection and transmission pipeline systems, thereby improving the natural gas’s heat content and making it a more commercial product. The collected Hydrogen Sulfide is generally converted to elemental sulfur by means of monitored oxidation. Relatively small quantities of H₂S are further dried and purified for commercial sale.

Hydrogen Sulfide may be used to produce metal sulfides and as a reactive gas in the synthesis of high-purity mercaptans. It is frequently associated in error with the odor 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 setting.

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