Within the field of gas analysis much time is spent looking at the accuracy and uncertainty in the detection technique. However, without appropriate sample handling, what you are measuring could potentially bear little or no relation to your original sample.
OPSIS provides real-time, flexible monitoring of particulate matter in the ambient air. Particulate matter monitoring with OPSIS, is a cost-effective solution, is ideally suited for use in modern monitoring stations. It can be remote controlled and includes automatic calibration, features that frees time. The SM200 meets the new regulation for automatic monitoring of PM10 and PM2.5. It also meets the new regulation for particulate matter sampling on filter membranes for further analysis of cadmium, nickel, PAH...
CIC Photonics first applied its IRGAS technology to semi-gases when a major semiconductor equipment manufacturer, Applied Materials, requested a demo of its capability to monitor gas quality for epitaxial reactor applications; that was in year 2000. The IRGAS System met all of the technical requirements, which included ppb sensitivity for moisture as an impurity, gas cell chemical resistance to both acid and basic semi-gases, and fast concentration tracking time response.
With over 15 years of experience in the measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOC), Environment SA announces the VOC72M, a new generation analyzer for the measurement of BTEX compounds by gas chromatography with photo-ionization detector (PID). The VOC72M can handle up to 40 compounds and eight configurations for analysis. This compact and fully automated analyzer with wide voltage range specifications (90-240V) provides equivalent performance to the laboratory chromatographs and is particularly suited to...
Many of the air quality analyses can be performed with standard laboratory consumables, such as traditional filter papers. However, some analyses require materials with specific features, for example filters with low metal levels.
Common air monitoring applications include:
Air quality testing of ambient environment and emissions. Includes particulate monitoring methods such as PM2.5 and PM10, and chemical analysis such as heavy metals determination.
Asbestos sampling and analysis
The purity of a gas is an indication of the amount of other gases contained in it. A high purity refers to a low amount of other gases. High purity gas are considered to be of better quality and are generally more expensive. The purity of the gas can be expressed as a percentage or as a decimal fraction. Applications for checking the purity of the gases across different industrial sectors by air separation plants, cryogenic facilities, the quality control of industrial gases to the steel mills, etc.
The Cleanroom is a combined laboratory chemical, mechanical and / or electronic whose main characteristic is the presence of very pure air, that is a very low content of fine dust in suspension. In the process of semiconductor production, the airborne particles (micro-powder) go to irreparably damage the micro-photoetched that form the chip, creating an electronic circuit defective, and then discarded. This process has forced the improvement of industrial production environments, removing particles from the air,...
