Gas control in laboratory analysis devices: Precise and space saving
Your analysis devices should provide reliable measurement results and be adapted to the applications of your customers. Are you already familiar with Bürkert systems for space-saving gas dosing that save both time and money?
For measuring principles in instrumental analytics
Pre-configured or highly specific gas control systems
Documentable thanks to automation
In instrumental analytics, researchers use laboratory analysis devices to measure, analyse and verify substances. The gases used for measurements here are argon, helium, carbon dioxide, air, nitrogen, oxygen, methane, acetylene and hydrogen.
The measuring principles include for instance:
Spectroscopy, divided into:
atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS)
atomic emission spectroscopy (AES)
mass spectroscopy (MS).
Gas chromatography (GC)
The following applies irrespective of the measuring principle: Precise and repeatable control of the gases used is essential for exact measurement results.
How can you manufacture gas control units in a more compact and time-saving manner? Discover the competitive advantages of our gas control systems.
One gas control system instead of individual parts
Traditionally, you, as a manufacturer of analysis devices, purchase individual parts for gas control solutions, which then have to be painstakingly configured and installed. Bürkert gas control systems help you reduce construction time, logistics and service.
Costly procurement of gas control components Manufacturers of analysis devices usually purchase special, individual gas control components. Associated with this is the expenditure for procuring and testing the parts, for the engineering and the design of the gas control system.
Win-win situation thanks to gas control systems With customer-specific assemblies for gas dosing, you save space in the device and manufacturing costs during assembly – thanks to shorter construction times, less logistics and service.
Three key challenges for the manufacturers of analysis devices
Stable measured values Analysis devices must provide stable measurement results with high repetition accuracy.
High price pressure Short life cycles and high price pressure characterise the market. In order to compete in terms of price, analysis devices often offer functionalities limited to the actual fields of application. A large control range helps with standardisation.
Specific requirements In addition to standardised devices, there is a great demand for customer-specific solutions that guarantee the precise control and regulation of gases. Designing the ideal gas control system entails a lot of work for you as a device manufacturer.
This is how we support you to overcome your challenges
✓ Stable measured values Bürkert gas control systems are designed for consistent and reliable analysis processes – with a low number of sealing points, short flow channels, etc. The automated systems simplify your documentation.
✓ Economic gas control Pre-configured Bürkert gas control systems are the solution for all analysis devices that do not require highly specific integration. They are compact, modular and easy to implement. This makes them ideally suited for the fast and cost-effective analysis of special applications.
✓ Customer-specific requirements We supply highly integrated gas control systems to suit your functional and fluidic requirements. Each of these unique systems has a compact design with a few sealing points and requires minimum expenditure for hosing or piping.
Pre-configured or highly integrated – which type of gas control system offers the greatest added value for your laboratory analysis devices? Discover more about both gas control variants:
