go to the Gas Chromatograph Analyzers product page Ina Stringfield asked on Feb 17th, 2014 in Gas Chromatograph Analyzers

Is the quality, i.e. purity and composition, critical for the utility gases?

Massimo Baldizzone, Technical Sales Support

ABB's answer

Yes.  The ABB detectors are design to detect and measure trace level contaminants in process streams.  Any contamination present in the utilities can decrease measured component sensitivity, reduce analyzer hardware life expectancy through contamination, and reduce component linearity response.  Ultimately contamination will increase the routine maintenance costs.  Utility specification can be found in the analyzer operation manual.
