Series 200 Aromatic Hydrocarbon Analyzer: Specific detection of benzene within beverage-grade carbon dioxide


Press Release Date: March 2002

Body Text: Bethlehem, PA - GOW-MAC® Instrument Company introduces their latest process instrument, the Series 200 Aromatic Hydrocarbon Analyzer. Trace aromatic impurity monitoring is of critical importance to carbon dioxide manufacturers and the carbonated beverage industry. The Series 200 AHC meets all ISBT Method 12.0 criteria for selective
measurement of benzene in carbon dioxide. Continuous stream or batch sampling operations are readily performed.

The Series 200 AHC is specifically designed as a rugged, low cost, low maintenance, simple to operate, turn-key system. No cylinder support gases are needed. Calibration and sample introduction are totally automated. A newly designed photo-ionization detector (PID) and proprietary technology are used for the specific measurement of benzene without interference from other potential impurities in beverage-grade carbon dioxide. Detector response is linear over three orders of magnitude. The detectable limit for benzene is 3 ppb, which is far below the ISBT guideline limit of 20 ppb. GOW-MAC's Series 200 AHC system is also capable of PC-based control and data logging. Full documentation is provided, along with optional customer training and support services.

The Series 200 AHC is available either from GOW-MAC Instrument Co., Bethlehem, PA or from Airborne Laboratories, Bridgewater, NJ [Tel (732) 302-1950; Fax (732) 302-3035; e-mail airbornelabs@aol.com].
