Key Features and Benefits

  • Oxygen will be detected but will not be quantified. For accurate oxygen analysis an external oxygen sensor is required.
  • Ultra-high purity fittings and regulators.
  • Internally purged diaphragm valves ensure no air contamination and the lowest detection limits possible.
  • Cryogenic cooling may be used to separate argon and oxygen.
  • Analysis is complete in less than 15 minutes.
