I would suggest contacting your specialty gas vendor's tech center for guidelines. My gas vendor has extremely knowledgeable staff to help with questions ranging from vague to ultra-specific. Ask your sales rep for a good contact within the tech staff. They will know the "cream of the crop".

A colleague of mine has a question about hydrogen and nitrogen mixture. Please advise.

See email below.



Hi Wayne, I have a question for you. I'd like to use 80/20 H2/N2 or other high % mixes of hydrogen. I have never used more than 5% before. We would not use it much and would not use large volumes-we would bubble the gas into sealed 100 ml bottles of fluid to equilibrate the gas and that's it (in other words, we would never have hydrogen gas flowing for more than a couple minutes at a time, and in very small amounts).
Any idea where I could look for guidelines, etc? Thanks, ejc
