The oxygen present in inert gas can be removed to a residual content of < 1 ppm by a copper catalyst (C&CS #592). Before usethe catalyst has to be reduced in situ by a hydrogen-inert gas mixturen (typically with 2–5 vol.-% hydrogen).
6 x 4
Traces of water are removed by our molecular sieve 13X (C&CS #597). Thus values in areas of under 1 vol.-ppm can be reached.

Traces of oxygen in inert gas can be removed down to content of < 1 ppm by use of a copper catalyst (C&CS #592). Before use, this catalyst is to be reduced in situ by a hydrogen-inert gas mixture (typically with 2 – 5 vol% hydrogen).
Traces of water are removed down to a value of < 1 ppmv by means of the molecular sieve 13X (C&CS #597).
For drying of gases or liquids, respectively, C&CS offers different molecular sieves of the type 3A, 4A and 13X (C&CS #678, #595 and #597, respectively), activated Alumina (C&CS #470) and Silica gel with indicator (C&CS #919) and without indicator (C&CS #782). On special request C&CS delivers also further drying agents e.g. Calcium chloride.
