Safe, reliable and robust
In most cases the type of gas to be analyzed is highly flammable and might pose a risk in the laboratory. To ensure the safest possible way of handling, the GBS is equipped with a gas leakage sensor which constantly measures the composition of the air inside the sampler. When hydrocarbons are detected, the sampler assumes there is a possible dangerous situation and aborts all activity. The user interface on the gas sampling systems and the Xplorer monitor indicate that a situation has occurred and various safety measures are taken. The introduction of sampling gas into the Xplorer system and the carrier gas flow are stopped. After inspection and correction, the reset button on the touch screen can be pressed in order to resume activity.
Truly unique: calibrating out of a single CRM
The GBS is able to create a calibration line out of a single CRM standard when connected to the Xplorer combustion analyzer. The Automatic Calibration Function will free up time from the operator, while generating the ideal calibration curve using the Xplorer. The GBS can select different volumes from 10 up to 1000 mL out of a single gas bag and introduce them automatically into the Xplorer.
Components in gas can usually not be measured at the same low level as liquid or liquefied gas samples because of the physical laws applicable. However the GBS is able to handle these kind of samples perfectly, demonstrating a detection limit in the low ppb’s with outstanding repeatability. To avoid any cross contamination, the GBS features purge and rinse options. In the GBS the 100 mL gas tight syringe and flow path of the sampling systems are purged by carrier gas.
