Guaranteeing Top-Quality Gases for Gas Chromatography


Since gas chromatography debuted well over a century ago, it’s become a necessary analytical tool in various industries, the pharmaceutical and food industries foremost among them. Face it: few other techniques for separating and analyzing the components of chemical mixtures are as straightforward, as effective, or as accurate. Nowadays, gas chromatography is universal in the quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex chemical blends and the purification of chemical compounds. It’s also extensively used to monitor industrial processes and in the quality-control testing of products.

Of course, the carrier gases necessary for gas chromatography, aside from having to be either inert or unreactive, must be at least 99.995% pure – greater than that, occasionally! And that’s where Arc3 Gases really makes a difference. Now, it’s true, we haven’t been on the scene as long as gas chromatography. But, as an esteemed PurityPlus® partner producer-distributor, we’ve been supplying chemical researchers and assorted industries with carrier gases of the finest purity feasible for ages now. We guarantee it, too. Why? Because Arc3 Gases, like all of the 600 PurityPlus® partner gas production facilities across the country, is thoroughly inspected and certified every year by a trusted independent third-party outfit. Our customers will attest to the purity we deliver.

Which carrier gas we deliver – helium (He), argon (Ar), nitrogen (N2), carbon dioxide (CO2), or hydrogen (H2), mostly – depends on the sort of detector used and the chemical components being examined. Usually, we supply 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 customers also rely on us providing the carrier gases they need when they need them. Local availability means as well that our customers have speedy access to our technical expertise and can better cultivate the kind of tight relationship with us that serves the needs of both parties.
