Ensuring Finest-Quality Gases for Gas Chromatography


In the years since gas chromatography debuted well over a century ago, it’s become an indispensable analytical tool in quite a few industries, the pharmaceutical and food industries foremost among them. Face it: hardly any other techniques for separating and analyzing the components of chemical mixtures are as straightforward, as effectual, or as precise. Nowadays, gas chromatography is pervasive in the quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex chemical compositions and the purification of chemical compounds. It’s also widely used to control industrial processes and in the quality-control testing of products.

Of course, the carrier gases necessary for gas chromatography, besides having to be either inert or unreactive, must be at least 99.995% pure – greater than that, occasionally! And that’s where AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V. proves invaluable. Okay, so we haven’t existed as long as gas chromatography. But, as a highly regarded PurityPlus® partner producer-distributor, we’ve been providing chemical researchers and assorted industries with carrier gases of the utmost purity achievable for some time now. We guarantee it, too. Why? Because AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V., like all of the 600 PurityPlus® partner gas production facilities throughout the states, is fastidiously inspected and certified per annum by a recognized independent third-party outfit. Our Mexico customers will vouch for the purity we deliver.

Which carrier gas we deliver – helium (He), argon (Ar), nitrogen (N2), carbon dioxide (CO2), or hydrogen (H2), mainly – depends on the kind of detector employed and the chemical components being assessed. Typically, we produce gases suitable for…

  • Thermal Conductivity Detectors,
  • Flame Ionization Detectors,
  • Electron Capture Detectors,
  • Helium Ionization Detectors,
  • Flame Photometric Detectors,
  • Photo Ionization Detectors,
  • GC-Mass Spectrometry,
  • High-Frequency Discharge Detectors,
  • Discharge Ionization Detectors, and
  • Ultrasonic Detectors

Our Mexico customers also count on us providing the carrier gases they need when they need them. Local availability means too that our customers have convenient access to our technical capabilities and can better cultivate the kind of close relationship with us that’s mutually beneficial.
