Ensuring Purity and Performance: The Critical Role of Particle Contamination Monitoring in Industrial Gases

Discover how our advanced particle counters safeguard the integrity and efficiency of key processes by detecting particle contaminants in essential gases like Argon, Helium, CO2, Ammonia, Nitrogen, and other inert gases. Ensuring the highest standards in industries from pharmaceuticals to semiconductors.
  • (Ar) (He) (NH 3 ) (N) (CO 2 ) OTHER

    Argon

    Contaminants in argon can affect its inertness, leading to unwanted reactions in processes where argon is used to create a stable, non-reactive environment. This is crucial in applications like shielding gases in welding or inert atmospheres in metal manufacturing.

  • Helium

    (Solair only) Due to its small atomic size, helium is highly sensitive to particle contamination. Contaminants can affect its efficacy as a cooling medium in cryogenics and its purity in gas chromatography, impacting the accuracy and efficiency of these processes.

  • (He) (NH 3 ) (N) (CO 2 )

    CO2

    Particle contaminants in CO2 can affect its properties as a supercritical fluid, impacting its use in extraction and cleaning processes. In applications where CO2 is used for carbonation or as a refrigerant, purity is essential for both product quality and process efficiency.

  • (He) (NH 3 ) (N) (CO 2 )

    Nitrogen

    Nitrogen is often used for creating inert atmospheres in various industries. Particle contaminants in nitrogen can introduce impurities into these processes, affecting everything from the quality of pharmaceutical products to the integrity of electronic components in semiconductors

  • (He) (NH 3 ) (N) (CO 2 )

    Ammonia

    In semiconductor manufacturing, impurities in ammonia can lead to defects in nitride films, affecting the performance of electronic devices. In chemical synthesis, contaminants can alter reaction pathways, leading to undesired products or yields.

  • (He) (NH 3 ) (N) (CO 2 ) OTHER

    Other Inert Gases

    Other Inert Gases Inert gases like neon, xenon, and krypton are used in specialized applications where their specific properties are crucial. Particle contaminants can alter these properties, thereby affecting the performance in applications like lighting, imaging, or as carrier gases.
