OmniStar and ThermoStar are compact benchtop analysis systems for sample gases at, or below atmospheric pressure. They are the perfect complete solution for gas analysis, especially in chemical processes, the semiconductor industry, in metallurgy, fermentation, catalysis, freeze drying and environmental analysis.
The analysis systems consist of an inlet system, a PrismaPro mass spectrometer, a dry-compressing diaphragm vacuum pump MVP and a HiPace turbopump. The gas inlet is equipped with a capillary that can be heated to 350°C; this capillary is made of stainless steel in the OmniStar and of quartz glass in the ThermoStar. The heated capillary prevents vapors from condensing during analysis of the sample gas. This 2-stage inlet enables a quasi segrega-tion-free gas supply.
The PV MassSpec mass spectrometer software enables quali-tative and quantitative analyses. The systems cover the mass ranges of 1-100 u, 1-200 u and 1-300 u.
The ThermoStar solution was specifically developed for coupling with thermo balances. The inlet system incorporates a quartz capillary and platinum orifice, assuring that even minute concentrations can still be analyzed. In contrast to competitive analysis methods, such as FTIR and IR, it is possible to detect all gases within the mass range.
