Mexico Specialty Gas Equipment Spotlight: Gas Purifiers


At AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V., PurityPlus® specialty gases for commercial, industrial, medical, scientific, and agricultural use are what we’re primarily known for selling. 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 eliminate impurities down to part-per-trillion (pptV) levels. This sort of purity is necessary for fabricating not only semiconductors but also all sorts of display, LED, and solar products.

To be specific, we deliver …

  • high-pressure gas purifiers, these models built for use in all types of laboratory and industrial research where oil or water must be segregated from a gas in order to boost its effectiveness and prevent equipment shutdown.
  • gas purifiers that, while similar to our high-pressure models, are made to handle higher capacities at a lower working pressure.
Each of these purifiers must used along with specially engineered replaceable cartridges that contain one of various adsorbents. As determined by the cartridge/adsorbent ordered, these purifiers can remove more than simply oil and water from industrial process gases; they’re also capable of removing water from inert gases and saturated hydrocarbons, removing various particulates, and removing water from unsaturated hydrocarbons – acetylene, for instance.
  • a series of gas purifiers specifically made to remove up to 1% of oxygen from a hydrogen stream down to a level of less than 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.
