With over 30 years experience in the field, Hiden Analytical continues to remain dedicated to producing mass spectrometer-based gas analysis systems. The latest product catalogue, just released, highlights the full range of application-specific standard systems for analysis of gases and vapours in diverse environments, addressing measurement of samples at pressure from millibar to 30 atmospheres and with sample quantities down to less than 0.1scc.
The QIC series provides the general-purpose laboratory work-horses for continuous analyses where sample size is not a specific limitation, with sample consumption rates down to 1scc/min. The HPR series are biased towards the researcher and to the more specialised applications such as evolved gas, gas reaction and fast event studies, small sample analysis with aliquot sizes to 0.1scc, measurement of flame and atmospheric plasma composition, top-gas and dissolved gas monitoring from and in aqueous solution.
The product range evolved from the companies ability and willingness to work with their customers to produce dedicated and specialised interfaces to integrate the mass spectrometer with specific and diverse processes, and custom engineering continues to be a significant element of the company’s activity.
