VIG 210 METHANE/ETHANE
Now available for rent, VIG model-210 is a microprocessor based, oven heated methane / ethane / non-methane-ethane / total hydrocarbon gas analyzer designed for high accuracy, sensitivity and stability.
The Model-210 uses two independent flame ionization detectors (FIDs), one to measure total hydrocarbons and the second coupled with a GC Column for the separation of the methane, ethane and non-methane-ethane components.
A sample is fed to the analyzer via an internal heated pump to the first FID for a real time total hydrocarbon reading. A portion of the sample is trapped and pushed through a column to separate the methane and ethane components and then to the second FID. Any remaining sample in the column is back flushed through the column to obtain the non-methane-ethane components.
All components that come in contact with the sample through analysis are maintained in a temperature-controlled oven to prevent condensation, and to provide repeatable, reliable performance in the analysis of a wide variety of hydrocarbon concentrations in gaseous mixtures or in ambient air.
