Specialty gases tailored to your needs!

Noble supplies high-purity and pre-purified gases and gas blends for a variety of research, analytical, and hi-tech production applications. As analytical instrument manufacturers continue to push the thresholds of sensitivity and detection limits, so does Noble in producing application-specific gas grades to meet stringent specifications.

Noble Gas is proud to be partnered with PurityPlus®, a nationwide partnership of select, independent, and local specialty gas providers. Through Noble Gas’s PurityPlus partnership, we are able to provide research-grade oxygen, designated as Oxygen 5.0. With a 99.999% purity rating. It’s the highest grade of oxygen we offer. That makes it ideal for use in all sorts of critical laboratory and industrial applications.


The global electronics industry has seen an exceptional expansion of activity during the last forty years or so, and specialty gases have helped spearhead a lot of it here in NY as well as globally. Without a doubt, the whole semiconductor industry has to have gases and chemicals of extremely high purity. They give the pure silicon that’s essential to semiconductor-based microprocessors the distinctive properties necessary for running new watches, smartphones, and computers.

Not to be overlooked, the drawing of fiber optic cable also necessitates a protective atmosphere of high-purity helium. As fiber optic cable replaces traditional “twisted pair” copper wire and coaxial cable, the volume of high-purity helium committed to the fiber cable production process continues to grow. Once liquefied, helium transforms into a low-temperature coolant that delivers superconductivity to the magnets deployed in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as well as to superconducting wire that cuts down normal electrical resistance and promises to permit the more efficient distribution of electricity.

To advance 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 comprising silane, phosphine, diborane, and arsine. Furthermore,

To advance semiconductor research, Noble Gas supplies pure gases in VLSI, research, and electronic grades of nitrogen, helium, argon, and hydrogen. We can deliver specialty fluorocarbons, hydrogen chloride, ammonia, and ultra-high-purity oxygen for etching. These are but a few of the gases that are available.

Noble Gas Solutions also offers manufacturers the complete PurityPlus® inventory of gas equipment such as low dead-volume regulators, gas cabinets, and monitoring systems. We have all the products you use, typically in reduced amounts more appropriate for research and development. Besides which, you’ll be happy to know that all of our products meet every applicable industry standard and expectation.

Our clients include companies in industries such as:

  • Semiconductor (Memory Chip manufacturing)
  • Photovoltaics (Solar)
  • Light Emitting Diode (LED)
  • Flat Panel Display (FPD TV)
  • Fiber Optics
  • Superconductivity Research

Today, a significant number of industries are required to carefully monitor environmental pollution and use high precision calibration standards to obtain accurate measurements. Noble Gas offers a complete line of EPA Protocol and other Environmental Compliance Standards for environmental compliance. By collaborating with the consumer, we personally build a service program that minimizes frustratingly long lead times and the frustration and high cost of common carriers to deliver and remove cylinders.

Food & Beverage

For ages now, the Albany food industry has been using industrial and specialty gases. Generally, these gases find a considerable number of applications, including use in flash freezing, beverage carbonation, fruit ripening, and shelf-life extension.

PurityPlus gases rated and delivered for food packaging leave their imprint on just about all of the food industry, encompassing such products as …

  • Red Meats
  • Poultry
  • Fresh Fruits
  • Salty Snacks
  • Peanut Butter
  • Carbonated Drinks
  • Beer and Wine
  • Processed Meats
  • Dairy Products
  • Dry & Dehydrated Foods
  • Prepared Foods
  • Bakery Foods
  • Fresh Vegetables

Liquid nitrogen and liquid carbon dioxide are common freezing agents for meats, including beef, pork, chicken and fish, both raw and partially prepared, as well as fruits, vegetables, ice cream, and baked goods. A gas-based process permits nearly immediate freezing to temperatures of -20 degrees or colder, and that fast temperature lessening protects the flavor and taste of the product which otherwise can deteriorate with standard freezing equipment. We at Noble Gas Solutions can tell you more about the freezers and refrigerators these processes require – and even get you the units most appropriate for your operations.

The use of carbon dioxide for beverage carbonation and dispensing has more than a century and a quarter of precedence. Today, literally tens of thousands of point-of-use beverage dispensers depend on beverage-grade CO2 shipped in cylinders that vary by volume. This ensures a top-grade final product because it’s carbonated by a clean gas that’s taste and odor-free, thanks to the way it’s prepared. Modern local microbreweries, restaurants, and taverns, in particular – world-class breweries, too – most often call for PurityPlus beverage-grade carbon dioxide for beer dispensing. Equally desired are special mixtures of nitrogen and carbon dioxide since they make it easier to properly pour a lot of those well-liked Porter-style dark beers.

Another large gas-consuming application entails deploying nitrogen to displace oxygen and moisture in product packaging, which prolongs shelf life and spruces up product appearance. The most familiar process uses High Purity nitrogen with minimal moisture and oxygen content to protect a wide variety of products, from coffee and breakfast cereals to potato chips, nuts, and other salty snacks. A packaging material widely referenced as Modified Atmospheric Packaging (MAP) utilizes more complex, specially prepared mixtures of High Purity nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and oxygen.

The examples outlined here don’t even begin to convey the wide-ranging ways in which food and beverage manufacturers and packaging enterprises use specialty gases and equipment. Our professionals are experts in the economical use of food industry gases. We’re enthusiastic about working with you to help increase the shelf life and upgrade the appearance of your products.

Laboratories & Research

Analytical laboratories must have unvarying and totally reliable carrier gases and calibration mixtures. The PurityPlus®-accredited lab of Noble Gas Solutions will ensure that your needs are properly addressed. Our custom calibration mixtures permit Noble Gas customers to benchmark analytical methodologies and prepare baselines for both research and product development. Our pure gases and gas mixtures provide laboratories accurate standards for precise instrument calibration, establishing PurityPlus gases as the most trustworthy choice for labs like yours.

Pharmaceutical & Life Sciences

Pharmaceuticals production, product storage, and R&D must adhere to the most exacting purity and control. Research is done using gas chromatographs, liquid chromatographs, UV/VIS spectrometers, and NR spectrometers. Instruments such as these require a ready reserve of highly precise pure gases and gas mixes. In addition, manufactured products are created with the use of USP-grade gases and held in storage using liquid nitrogen in cryogenic freezers.

Noble Gas Solutions manufactures PurityPlus specialty gases, a comprehensive line of standard and customized pure and mixed gases in varying sizes and types of packages to accommodate your singular needs. Beyond that, we offer a comprehensive line of high-purity regulators and gas control devices that fulfill very demanding standards of pressure control. We have been providing this selection of gases to the pharmaceuticals industry for a long time now, and our local gas manufacturing and packaging can set your mind at ease that run-outs and emergency deliveries won’t trouble you again.
