  • Analysis of PFAS Specified in EPA Method 537 and Beyond using Shimadzu UFMS

    This application note demonstrates the use, performance, and compatibility of Shimadzu ultra-fast mass spectrometry for EPA Method 537 with an expanded compound panel of seven additional PFAS. A total of 27 PFAS were extracted, separated and detected with triple quadrupole mass spectrometers, LCMS-8045 and LCMS-8050. Recoveries of 86-106% (LCMS-8050) and 77-104% (LCMS-8045) were well within the ...

  • Measuring water with the Fluidscan fluid condition monitor

    Abstract Water in oil can manifest itself in many forms – from dissolved to emulsified, to free water with oil. How water will be present in a given oil depends on the nature of the oil formulation as well as sample preparation conditions. The FluidScan® mid-infrared spectrometer from Spectro Inc. is designed to monitor the presence of water in all the above scenarios. The device ...

  • Development of on-line and field dual TD GC – MS for automatic VOC monitoring on petrochemical sites

    Ambient air is polluted by many semi-Volatile and Volatile Organic Compounds (SVOCs and VOCs) coming from anthropogenic and natural sources. VOCs from PAMS, TO14 and TO15 lists can be measured in many ranges of concentration, from pg/m3 up to mg/m3 depending on the location of the measurements. Due to the large number of molecules, the complete separation of all compounds is difficult to perform ...

  • The effect of draw out lens diameter on sensitivity of GC–MS analysis

    Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) allows isolation and identification of individual analytes within a complex mixture. Helium has traditionally been the first-choice carrier gas, owing to its inertness, performance, and relatively cheap price. Since 2001, however, helium has become increasingly expensive with a reported global increase in price of 500% between 2001 and 2016 ...
