Gas chromatography is a key tool in the analysis of trace components in high purity gases used at pharmaceutical, electronics, petrochemical, food and beverage plants, and medical facilities, or in support gases for analytical instrumentation in laboratories and research facilities. Mixed gases are also carefully quantified to be used for the calibration of analytical or process instruments.
Known advantages of VUV Spectroscopy
- Provides real-time bulk and specialty gas data, enabling improved process control
- Blended gas samples can be analyzed with one detector that is not dependent on chromatographic separation
- Overlapping signals can be easily deconvolved using VUV software
- Improved sensitivity advantage of 100 – 1000X over FTIR
- Easy to understand analysis by Beer-Lambert Law (same principle used in UV-Vis spectroscopy)
