The removal of contaminants prior to cooling and distillation is essential to the cryogenic air separation process. If not detected quickly, impurities such as carbon dioxide (CO2) can freeze in the downstream cryogenic equipment causing damage and product spoilage. Tiger Optics’ Spark CO2 analyzer affords fast, accurate response and clean-up, with robust, drift-free performance.
The Spark CO2 builds on Tiger Optics’ longstanding leadership for trace monitoring of critical impurities in pressurized gases. Based on powerful Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS), with a proprietary laser-locked cell, the Spark is free of drift, guaranteeing consistent and reliable trace CO2 detection in nitrogen and other inert gases. Highly specific to the target molecule, CRDS also prevents cross-interferences from distorting your measurement.
Plus, there is no need to perform costly and time-consuming zero and span calibrations, saving both time and money with continuous, on-line service. With freedom from calibration and maintenance, the Spark CO2 gives you exceptional ease of use and extremely low Cost of Ownership.
