In the hydrocarbon processing industry, GC-MS has an unparalleled ability to identify mystery peaks, quantitate analytes to ppb levels, speciate co-eluting compounds, and quantify compounds missed by less sophisticated detectors. Until now, GC-MS has been restricted to laboratory use which has meant waiting hours to days for results on your process stream. Not any more!
Typical process gas chromatographs use flame ionization (FID) or thermal conductivity (TCD) detectors - both of which are excellent tools. However, neither detector can help you examine process streams for ppb-levels of critical analytes such as halides, sulfurs, or oxygenates.
And what about unknowns? It's not uncommon for a repeatable peak to show up in a chromatogram indicating the presence of a contaminant. But what is it? Which part of the plant or process is it coming from? A mass spectrometer (MSD) is the perfect detector to help you deal with troublesome peaks and identify the problem with your process.
Join us to learn how Wasson-ECE Instrumentation brought GC-MS out of the lab for real-time analysis of process streams! John Wasson, founder and President of Wasson-ECE, will provide an overview of the basic principles and power of GC-MS, and show examples of Eclipse process GC-MS results.
Which process stream do you wish you could measure in real-time? Now you can with Eclipse Process GC-MS, GC-VUV, GC-FID/TCD, and GC-PDHID combinations.
