  • Preparing biological samples for elemental analysis by ICP-MS

    For the clinical industry, the transition from Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) to Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) has been gradual over the past two decades. The ability to measure more elements per sample in less time has made it the technique of choice. With a large dynamic range and ultra-low detection limits, ICP-MS is able to meet the growing demands within ...

  • H2O in refinery CCR unit recycle streams

    On-line monitoring of the H2O concentration in the hydrogen recycle streams of continuous catalytic reformer (CCR) units enables refineries to control the chloride level required for optimum catalyst activity, and avoid excess levels of H2O that strip chloride from catalyst surfaces and forms HCl. This HCl can be transported to other downstream catalytic processes in the net hydrogen ...
