Supplier of Specialty Gases and Chemicals to the Pittsburgh Electronics Industry

The worldwide electronics industry has really taken off in the last forty years, and specialty gases have certainly contributed to much of that – here in Pittsburgh as well as wordwide. As insiders know, the semiconductor industry as a whole has to have gases and chemicals of extremely high purity. They give the pure silicon that’s essential to semiconductor-based microprocessors the singular properties needed to power our ever more technologically advanced watches, smart phones, and computers.

Just as crucial a point, the drawing of fiber optic cable also depends on a protective atmosphere of high-purity helium. This gas is being supplied in greater volume to fiber cable producers now that fiber optic cable is superseding traditional “twisted pair” copper wire and coaxial cable as the most requested choice. Once liquefied, helium transforms into a low-temperature coolant that provides superconductivity to the magnets deployed in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as well as to superconducting wire that cuts down normal electrical resistance and looks promising as a way of disseminating electricity more efficiently.  

To help sustain semiconductor research, PurityPlus® produces pure gases in VLSI, research, and electronic grades of nitrogen, helium, argon, and hydrogen. We also can deliver research quantities of high-purity reactive gases in mixtures including silane, phosphine, diborane, and arsine. In addition, we can produce specialty fluorocarbons, hydrogen chloride, ammonia, and ultra-high-purity oxygen for etching. These hardly account for all of the gases we have for you.

Butler Gas Products additionally gives Pittsburgh manufacturers access to the full PurityPlus® lineup of gas equipment such as low dead-volume regulators, gas cabinets, and monitoring systems. We have all the products you use, usually in the reduced quantities better suited to research and development. And you have the assurance that each of our products meets every applicable industry requirement and expectation.

Our clientele includes businesses in industies like the following:

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