Brief Description

The Electron Impact Ionization (EIMS) Mass Spectrometry to measure H2 fast and reliably in the range below 1 ppm up to 100%.

Detailed Description

The highly sophisticated analytical HSense is based on the Electron Impact Ionization (EIMS) Mass Spectrometry principle optimised to measure H2 fast and reliably. By using the electron-ion source, the gas sample ions are energised, focused and separated further on in a magnetic field in order to detect Hydrogen with an overall response of less than 1 second. The HSense is available with unique and fully automated gas inlet systems in order to compensate pressure variations, optimise the amount of withdrawn sample gas and thus guarantees the correct measurement. Any contamination due to condensation or particulate matters is minimised by the integrated 2-micron fine filter combined with a cross-flow sample conditioning system, which takes care of any potential water content.
