Supplier of Specialty Gases and Chemicals to the Fresno Electronics Industry

The global electronics industry has grown by leaps and bounds during the past forty years, and specialty gases have been integral to that growth – here in Fresno, not just globally. Without doubt, the whole semiconductor industry requires gases and chemicals of extremely high purity. They lend distinctive properties to the pure sillicon that’s essential to semiconductor-based microprocessors, which people tend to expect in today’s watches, smart phones, and computers.

Equally critical, the drawing of fiber optic cable also requires a protective atmosphere of high-purity helium. Once widely used “twisted pair” copper wire and coaxial cable are now being superseded increasingly by fiber optic cable, which has led to a continued increase in the amount of high-purity helium being allocated for the fiber cable fabricating process. As it’s liquefied, helium transforms into a low-temperature coolant that provides superconductivity to the magnets utlized in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as well as to superconducting wire that reduces normal electrical resistance and looks promising as a means of disseminating electricity more efficiently.  

To help sustain semiconductor research, PurityPlus® manufactures pure gases in VLSI, research, and electronic grades of nitrogen, helium, argon, and hydrogen. We also can manufacture research quantities of high-purity reactive gases in compounds including silane, phosphine, diborane, and arsine. Also, we can make specialty fluorocarbons, hydrogen chloride, ammonia, and ultra-high-purity oxygen for etching. These are only an example of the gases available.

Fresno Oxygen & Welding Supplies/Barnes Welding Supply additionally offers Fresno manufacturers the full PurityPlus® lineup of gas equipment including low dead-volume regulators, gas cabinets, and monitoring systems. We’ve got the products you require, typically in the reduced quantities better suited to research and development. Besides which, you can be sure all of our products meet every applicable industry requirement and expectation.
