Mexico Specialty Gas Equipment Spotlight: Gas Purifiers


It’s no secret that our primary business at AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V. is selling specialty gases for commercial, industrial, medical, scientific, and agricultural use. But customers are well aware they also can rely on us for everything needed to ship, cache, regulate, and work with those gases safely. One such category of equipment they truly value is our line of gas purifiers.

The Mexico semiconductor industry particularly calls on us for point-of-use gas purifiers that extract impurities down to part-per-trillion (pptV) levels. This sort of purity is necessary for fabricating not only semiconductors but also [[various display, LED, and solar products.

To be specific, we supply …

  • high-pressure gas purifiers, these models built for use in all types of laboratory and industrial research where oil or water must be kept out of a gas in order to boost its effectiveness and prevent equipment shutdown.
  • gas purifiers that, while much like our high-pressure models, are built to handle higher capacities at a lower working pressure.
Both of these purifiers must used with specially engineered replaceable cartridges containing one of various adsorbents. As determined by the cartridge/adsorbent ordered, these purifiers can exclude more than simply oil and water from industrial process gases; they can also exclude water from inert gases and saturated hydrocarbons, exclude a variety of particulates, and exclude water from unsaturated hydrocarbons – acetylene, for example.
  • a series of gas purifiers specifically made to remove up to 1% of oxygen from a hydrogen stream down to a level below 1 ppm. They do this by catalytic action. If the catalytic materials aren’t tainted (particularly by sulfur and halogens), they’ll operate pretty much permanently without requiring regeneration.
