Neutronics Inc. was formed in 1976 with a focus on the measurement and control of oxygen and other gases for safety, environmental, and general industrial applications. Neutronics acquired a company that made “high-purity” oxygen analyzers complemented the existing Neutronics line of “process” oxygen analyzers. These “high-purity” analyzers can quickly and accurately measure oxygen from parts per billion (ppb) to 100% and are primarily used in the semiconductor and gas generation industries. Today, Neutronics Inc. strives to exceed customer expectations by continually innovating better and more efficient gas analysis and control solutions to help maximize process efficiency, improve product quality, protect the health and safety of personnel and the environment, as well as preserve capital equipment and investments.
In 1978, a large chemical company, after experiencing more than a decade of numerous flash fires, selected Neutronics to provide a new, state-of-the-art, oxygen-based inert gas control system to address this serious problem. The Neutronics Inert gas Control System (ICS) is now the recognized industry standard, with over 10,000 installations worldwide at many Fortune 500 companies.
In 1991, Neutronics grew through acquisitions to include an Automotive division (refrigerant analysis equipment) and Biomarine Inc. (closed-circuit, self-contained breathing apparatus). During this period the original oxygen analysis product line of Neutronics was branded as “Ntron.”
In 2001, Neutronics expanded its offerings in plant, personnel/process safety and product purity systems with a comprehensive line of toxic, flammable and asphyxiate gas detection instruments.
