Press Release Summary:
Model MTO-1000-CH4 trace methane analyzer couples CW Laser technology with Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy to measure CH4 levels down to 2 parts-per-billion in less than 1 sec. CRDS technology uses low-power, continuous wave diode lasers to provide exact, non-invasive, and rapid means of detecting contaminants. Corrosion-resistant analyzer, with multi-valve inlet design, allows CH4 detection in up to 4 gas streams.
Original Press Release:
New Analyzer Detects Trace Levels of Methane (CH4) in Electronic Gases
Tiger Optics, LLC. announces its MTO-1000-CH4 trace methane analyzer, which couples CW Laser technology with Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) to rapidly measure CH4 levels down to two parts-per-billion. This powerful new CRDS technology uses affordable, low power continuous wave diode lasers to provide an exact, non-invasive, and rapid means of detecting contaminants.
The MTO-1000-CH4 allows for early detection of purifier breakthrough or sources of cross contamination in the gas delivery system. It can also prevent photomask damage by detecting fugitive hydrocarbons that may degrade photolithographic lenses.
Simple to operate, the MTO-1000 makes accurate measurements in less than a second and is ideal for on-line process control. Based on an absolute technology, the instrument does not require calibration or the use of expensive consumables. It is corrosion resistant and its multi-valve inlet design allows for CH4 detection in up to four gas streams.
