Press Release Summary:
Trace Source(TM) 57FPK Gas Fed Permeation Tubes produce stable ppb calibration standards of arsine and other hydride impurities in polymerization-grade ethylene and propylene. Tubes are used with gas standards generating instrument to maintain them at constant temperature and flush them with olefin matrix gas. Flow of arsine from tubes mixes with this gas to create flowing calibration standard. Process enables concentrations from below 10 ppb to over 500 ppb of arsine to be produced.
Original Press Release:
PPB Arsine in Olefins Calibration Standards
Kin-Tek Trace Source(TM) 57FPK Gas Fed Permeation Tubes are designed to produce stable ppb calibration standards of arsine and other hydride impurities in polymerization grade ethylene and propylene. The tubes are used with a gas standards generating instrument which maintains the tube at constant temperature and flushes the tube with a constant flow of clean olefin matrix gas. A small steady flow of arsine permeate from the Trace Source(TM) tube mixes with the olefin matrix gas creating a flowing calibration standard. Calibration is based on the Standard Additions Principle to compensate for any residual arsine in the clean olefin matrix. Concentrations from below 10 ppb to over 500 ppb can be produced.
These permeation tubes use arsine (or other hydride) gas as the arsine source. This technique reduces temperature sensitivity, reduces the quantity of arsine in the tube, and allows the technique to be used for higher pressure gases such as phosphine and silane. Conventional permeation tubes contain liquid analyte.
