Mass spectrometers for vacuum, gas, plasma and surface science

Designed for analysis of gases, vapours and VOCs in liquids

The Hiden HPR-40 DSA Membrane Inlet Mass Spectrometer (MIMS) is a compact bench-top gas analysis system for real-time quantitative analysis and monitoring of dissolved/evolved gases.

The HPR 40 DSA is available with a range of 'DEMS' cells for differential electrochemistry mass spectrometry. DEMS cells include a nano porous  membrane interface for fast response in-situ determination of gaseous  and volatile electrochemical reactants, reaction intermediates and products in real time.

Overview

The system offers the facility for analysis to sub-ppb (parts per billion) levels and is suited to gas analysis applications where sample volume is small and for environmental applications where detection of a low concentration level is required. Both dissolved species probe inlets and circular membrane carrier inlets are available to address a broad range of applications. The inlet probe uses a special membrane that allows small levels of the dissolved species to pass through it and into the ion source of a high precision quadrupole mass spectrometer.

A manual isolation valve allows for control of the sampling and a solenoid safety valve provides protection for the mass spectrometer and vacuum system in case of membrane failure.
