Methane (CH4) Gas

We offer Methane gas in a variety of purities and concentrations meeting the requirements of clients. Methane is a highly flammable, non-corrosive, colorless, non-toxic and odorless gas with a boiling point of -161.4 degree Celsius.

Methane is a natural gas available under the earth. The main sources of this gas are coal fields and natural gas fields found under the earth. The gas can also be produced easily from bio gas plants and waste-water sludge treatment plants. The gas is considered as the environment-friendly fuel and is often referred as Green House Gas.

Methane of various purities and concentrations

To store and to transport, methane gas is liquefied for ease and safe handling. Thereafter it is transferred to methane gas cylinders and supplied to several industries for use. Methane is available in different purities and concentrations to meet the specific requirements of industries. Hema Gases has in-house equipments and a quality control team to check the purity and concentration of gases to make it useful for industries.

Methane gas is an important source of hydrogen and various organic chemicals. It reacts with steam to produce carbon monoxide and hydrogen gas that is used further for the manufacturing of ammonia for explosives and fertilizers.
