VUV Analyzer for Fuels

Analyzing finished fuels and feedstocks is a complicated process traditionally involving multiple analytical techniques—expensive dyes; multiple columns, valves, and traps; messy solvents; complicated hardware; and lots of analysis time. In order to obtain meaningful results, all of these components must work in perfect harmony, and often it requires prior knowledge of the samples being analyzed—with precious time wasted on reanalysis. The VUV Analyzer for Fuels combines the power of gas chromatography–vacuum ultraviolet spectroscopy (GC–VUV), the simplicity of VUV Analyze Software, and a suite of fuel-specific applications into an easy-to-use solution that automatically analyzes fuels in just a fraction of the time.

VGA-100 Detector

All gas phase molecules absorb strongly in the vacuum ultraviolet region, yet application of VUV absorption technology to analytical detection and measurement has not been addressed…until now. The VGA-100 is a universal mass-sensitive gas chromatography detector that provides both qualitative and quantitative data. The strong absorption of gas phase molecules in the VUV provide excellent sensitivity, and the compound-specific absorption spectra provide unparalleled selectivity.

VGA-101 Detector

The VGA-101 is the latest innovation in vacuum ultraviolet detection featuring an expanded wavelength spectrum and a higher allowable maximum operating temperature. An expanded wavelength spectrum of 120 – 430 nm provides unique selectivity for complex structures such as polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The ability to operate the VUV detector as high as 430 °C allows GCxGC analysis of high boiling point compounds.
