Transient Mass Spectrometer
Jul 2010Hiden Analytical Ltd.Request Info
Hiden Analytical Ltd.’s Transient mass spectrometer system
is designed for the analysis of fast transient gas events at pressures near atmosphere.
The compact benchtop system is based on the proprietary HPR-20 QIC series gas analyzers
and features a fast response capillary inlet and the HAL/3F PIC mass spectrometer
with a pulse ion-counting detector. The combination enables inlet system response
times of <150 ms and measurement speeds of up to 500 data points per second over
a seven-decade dynamic range. The system monitors species with molecular weights
to 300 atomic mass units, with higher mass ranges available. The MASsoft control
and data acquisition software provides integral calibration routines and user-programmable
template files for automatic analysis. Applications include pulsed gas experiments
for catalyst characterization, surface reaction and reduction studies, respiratory
analysis and process control.
