Axetris infrared sources are used in a variety of industrial applications: Combustible and Toxic Gas Detection, Refrigerant Monitoring, SF6 Monitoring, Fruit Ripening Monitoring, Flame Detection, Liquid Analysis using Attenuated Total Reflection ATR, Semiconductor Fabrication.
Anesthesia agent monitoring identifies and quantifies the anesthesia. This is done by using infrared absorption techniques to control the phases of the anesthesia. Therefore several gases have to be measured at once – online, accurately and reliably.
Capnography is the monitoring of the concentration or partial pressure of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the respiratory gases. The CO2 concentration during a single breath is measured in a high temporal resolution to monitor the condition of the lungs.
Gas Chromatography requires a stable repeatable flow of the carrier gas with negligible temperature drift. The Axetris MFC provides excellent control of the gas flow resulting in sharp peaks and high resolution of the chromatograms. Multiple calibrations allow the control of Helium, Hydrogen or Nitrogen. Due to the high turn down ratio of 1000:1 and more, a broad range of flows can be controlled.
A variety of MS techniques – such as Quadrupole MS, Time-of-Flight (TOF) MS, Ion Mobility Spectroscopy (IMS), etc. have been developed in the past decades, providing new tools for materials analyses. Flow control for mass spectrometry (MS) requires high repeatability and small temperature- and pressure dependency. This is important to achieve a high resolution and instrument resolution. Depending on the size and electrical interface requirements, the Axetris MFC modules or MFC standalone types are the...
Besides Mass Spectrometry, a further variety of analysis techniques are categorized as atomic spectroscopy. Analysis techniques which use inductively coupled plasma (ICP), such as ICP-OES and ICP-MS, are among these. With increasing environmental awareness backed by regulations, an increasingly important use of atomic spectroscopy techniques is in mercury analysis. Achieving a high mass flow control performance, e.g. high repeatability or an excellent turn-down ratio, is a prerequisite to achieve a high...
Elemental analysis is a generic term for a group of applications which deal with the analysis of a variety of materials (chemicals, liquids, polymers, waste material, etc.) for their elemental or isotopic properties. Typical examples of elemental analysis techniques where mass flow control plays a key role are Total Organic Carbon (TOC) or Total Organic Halides (TOX).
A variety of thermal analysis techniques, such as Thermo Gravimetric Analysis (TGA), Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) rely on high-performance mass flow control.
Bioreactors and fermentors are used in a variety of biotechnology and industrial applications, e.g. in cell culture or microbiology experiments. A precise control of gas flow is essential for controlling the biological process and to achieve the desired result.
A number of industries such as automotive parts (e.g. engine blocks, air bags, etc.), medical equipment (e.g. catheters) and food packaging rely on various verification tests to ensure that such critical parts are leak proof. Industrial leak testing benefits from high speed and excellent repeatability offered by the Axetris mass flow meters. Axetris leak tester customers call it “fast repeatability”.
Thin film deposition processes, e.g. reactive PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition), require a repeatable gas flow of the reactive gas to ensure reproducible film properties. With its industry-leading repeatability of < ± 0.15% FS and very small long term drift the Axetris MFC 2100 series supports you in making your equipment stable and easy to use for your customer.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) lasers are high power lasers, usually used for cutting of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. High-performance gas flow control is a key requirement for achieving high cutting performance with CO2 lasers. Gas flow control plays an important role for mixing key gases at a number of locations with a CO2 laser: Beam Generation: The gas mixture used as the emitting medium usually consists of CO2, He and N2. Most laser manufacturers specify a minimum required purity for the beam generation gas...
A number of components in a typical heart-lung machine require precise gas flow control. One typical component is the oxygenator, which is used for exchanging oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood during surgical procedures. Axetris offers solutions for high-performance oxygen gas flow control in medical applications in the form of meters, controllers or gas mixing manifolds.
A variety of medical devices, such as ventilators, breath analysis equipment and anesthesia delivery monitors require a quick and precise measurement of gas flow. Besides hospital applications, there is an increasing demand for gas flow control in home healthcare products, such as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines. Axetris mass flow meters and controllers are available for use with multiple gases such as O2, Air, He and CO2. The MEMS-based design of our mass flow devices offers key advantages...
