  • Application Area:Emission Testing Of Construction Materials Used For Clean Room Applications

  • Micro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor

"The Micro-Chamber enables us to do fast material screening, emission tests as well as the characterisation of polymer granulate. We use it as well for emission testing of Ammonia from polymer materials by coupling to an impinger system and analysis via ion chromatography. "

  • Application Area:Environmental Analyses

  • Micro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor

"The µCTE is very easy to use, it has a better workflow so more samples can be analysed. The TD100 with recollection is a big benefit for our indoor air sampling analysis; we can run the same sample a minimum of 2 times. "

Description

Fast sampling of emissions from products and materials.

The Micro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor™ (µ-CTE™) is a versatile and compact unit with up to six small cylindrical chambers that enables the sampling of chemicals released from products or materials. Released volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs) are collected onto sorbent tubes for analysis by TD–GC–MS.

The capability of the Micro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor has been further extended by the release of the Humidifier Accessory, which supplies the Micro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor with air or gas at up to 50% relative humidity.


Features:

  • The four-chamber model has a chamber volume of 114 mL and a maximum temperature of 250°C.
  • The six-chamber model has a chamber volume of 44 mL and a maximum temperature of 120°C.
  • Volatiles are collected on sorbent tubes for analysis by TD–GC–MS; also compatible with DNPH cartridges for formaldehyde monitoring.
  • No sample preparation needed – simply place the material in the chamber.
  • A constant flow of heated air or gas ensures rapid production of a representative VOC/SVOC profile.
  • Results can be correlated with longer-term reference methods.
  • Construction from inert-coated stainless steel – compatibility with reactive or thermally labile chemicals.
  • Accessories allow surface-only sampling or permeation testing.
  • An optional humidifier accessory (available for both models of microchamber) supplies air/gas at up to 50% relative humidity to allow closer simulation of conditions used in reference tests and to enhance the recovery of some less-volatile polar compounds.

Benefits:

  • Save time and money by minimising the need for third-party reference tests.
  • Convienient and fast – test multiple samples in minutes, not days, for efficient quality control.
  • Confidence in results – Data from the Micro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor has been shown to correlate with longer-term reference-test results.
  • Avoid tedious and time-consuming sample preparation – simply place your sample in the microchamber.
  • Complies with international standard methods ISO 12219-3 (interior air of road vehicles) and ASTM D7706 (rapid screening of VOC emissions from products).
  • Peace-of-mind – you are buying a quality product from the recognised leader in thermal desorption instrumentation

Applications:

  • RMicro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor analysing strawberriesapid emissions screening of materials used indoors and in vehicles, especially to aid compliance with regulations and safety labels.
  • Product R&D and formulation of lower-emitting products.
  • Testing of raw materials and production-line quality control.
  • Comparison with competitors’ products.
  • Testing permeation of vapours through materials.
  • Aroma profiling of foods or fragranced materials.
