Product News: Quadrupole mass spectrometer PrismaPro

Mass spectrometer for both qualitative and quantitative gas analysis as well as leak detection

29 Nov 2019


With the PrismaPro®, Pfeiffer Vacuum offers a quadrupole mass spectrometer for both qualitative and quantitative gas analysis as well as leak detection. The PrismaPro features a distinctive combination of high sensitivity, maximum stability, and intelligent operation. In daily operation, the user may benefit from its robust, compact design, and its easy system integration. 

Because of its selection options for mass ranges, detectors, ion sources, filament materials, and integrated interface options, the PrismaPro can be applied in industrial and analytical environments, in research & development, in leak detection, as well as in coating technology. For use in quality assurance or residual gas analysis, the PrismaPro promises the ideal solution.

The PrismaPro produces precise measurements with a detection limit of up to 3E-15 hPa. Depending on the application, one can choose between 1-100, 1-200 or 1-300 amu. The smallest contaminations in a vacuum system can be detected in a minimum of time using Faraday detectors or secondary electron multipliers. For monitoring total pressure and for protection of the mass spectrometer, a gauge can be connected directly to the PrismaPro. 

The newly developed PV MassSpec software for the PrismaPro is aimed to be easy to use and offers a clear platform for capturing and visualizing measured data and parameter records. Simple routines for leak detection and vacuum diagnosis can be activated quickly. Measurement tasks can be automated using a sequencer function. PV MassSpec can also operate multiple mass spectrometers simultaneously.

The large selection of interfaces, such as digital and analog inputs/outputs, or Ethernet with an open JSON programming interface, enable easy system integration.
