The new addition of 10.0 eV Heraeus Photoionisation Detector lamps (PID) offers great advantages for determining BTEX VOCs

The new addition of 10.0 eV Heraeus Photoionisation Detector lamps (PID) offers great advantages for determining BTEX VOCs

• Determining BTEX VOCs with a 10.0 eV PID lamp

• Heraeus PID lamps: high quality pure spectrum and long life



Heraeus Noblelight, one of the technology and market leaders in the field of specialty light sources, launches the latest development in its Photoionisation Detector Lamps (PID) range: a 10.0 eV PID lamp which offers increased detection sensitivity in BTEX determination.

“A CaF2 filter is attached onto our standard 10.6 eV PID lamp that permits output of the 10.0 eV line but blocks transmission of the 10.6 eV line. In BTEX determination, the advantages are better selectivity than 10.6eV and increased sensitivity compared to a 9.6 eV (Xenon filled) lamp, because of higher output intensity” explains Russell Fear, PID Product Manager of Heraeus Noblelight Analytics.

Careful selection of materials and attachment of the CaF2 filter window are critical to produce consistent and high performance lamps. This lamp still maintains the high spectral purity and long life that is a feature of Heraeus PID lamps.

Heraeus PID lamps offer an excellent lifetime and are proven to last more than 8000 hours. PID lamps are most commonly used in Hand-Held Gas Detectors for VOC detection, gas chromatography (GC), trace gas monitoring and sample ionisation for mass spectrometry.

A detailed Application Note from Heraeus gives more information on the new 10.0 eV PID lamps for BTEX determination. Please refer to the Heraeus website www.heraeus-noblelight.com or contact Heraeus for the complete Application Note:

An infrared heating system from Heraeus Noblelight is helping to ensure the high quality of composite aerospace structures manufactured at the new GKN Aerospace facility at Western Approach, near Bristol. The system, which is used to provide interim processing of the laid-up composite rear spar assembly of the Airbus 350 XWB to prevent subsequent wrinkling, was custom-designed and developed in close co-operation with GKN Aerospace engineers following initial tests at
Seven Good Reasons for the D2plus Light module
Heraeus Noblelight, one of the technology and market leaders in the field of specialty light sources will again exhibit at ANALYTICA, to be held in Munich, Germany in April 2012. Heraeus will introduce its “Seven Good Reasons for D2plus Light modules” at the show, making the life of instrument developers easier. Developing new analytical instruments places ever-increasing demands on engineers, to design-in the best available light-source and avoid future operational problems.
Specialty Light Sources for the Printing Industry
Hanau, February 2012 The Competence in Specialty Light Sources for printing systems Special and personalized printing processes need special treatment. The ink of ink jet or laser printers need to be completely dried or cured before the printed sheets are passed on for subsequent operations such as stacking, cutting, folding or gluing. Infrared or UV technology is used for drying and curing, depending on the type of ink. Heraeus Noblelight presents its
Infrared Emitters Improve Lacquered Surfaces
Many screens, internal claddings in cars and high value cosmetic packages are manufactured from plastics and contain a protective lacquer or finishing. The drying of the coating on the plastic components is not a trivial matter, for the surfaces need to be perfectly cured without applying to much heat to the plastic. Infrared heaters transfer energy in a contact-free manner and are easy to control. Consequently, the heat is precisely
