Air Products’ Experis® speciality gases range includes a number of UHP (ultra-high purity) hydrogen products with specifications intended to deliver peace of mind whatever your application.
The BIP® range was originally developed to eliminate the root cause of some of the biggest problems encountered by analysts working in gas chromatography, the removal of the critical impurities, oxygen and moisture from carrier gases, detector gas, make up gas, and instrument fuel gases.
Each cylinder has a self contained purification system consisting of a specially designed valve and purifier bed, enabling it to deliver one of the purest ultra-high purity gases on the market today.
BIP® hydrogen is an ideal gas for chromatography with a number of applications including a carrier, fuel or reaction gas, as the impurity levels are less than 10 ppb for oxygen, 20 ppb for moisture and 10 ppb for total hydrocarbons.
Such low impurity levels have significant benefits for both the GC analytical equipment and the analysis itself, these include reduced baseline noise and lower limits of detection.
Why is gas purity critical for my analytical application?
Some impurities can damage analytical instruments and affect accuracy of results. Oxygen and moisture are critical impurities in many analytical techniques.
