The changing pace of environmental regulations worldwide, coupled with the dynamics of a highly competitive marketplace, produce an array of complex challenges for industries utilizing emissions-monitoring gases. Flaws in the calibration gas can result in productivity losses and other complications. Therefore, monitoring must be done with strict adherence to regulatory agency requirements. This includes using precise and protocol-compliant reference standards to achieve accurate measurements.
Praxair ProSpec™ EPA Protocol and Emissions Monitoring Gases not only help you ensure the use of calibration gases that are compliant with regulatory demands but also help save you rework and cost associated with reference peak height drift. The stability of ProSpec gases also helps ensure less wasted gas and a longer shelf life, allowing you to use your gas for longer periods of time and have fewer concerns about inventory expiration.
Our cylinder design and preparation methods help ensure that the actual mixture concentration in the cylinder stays constant over longer periods of time. This reduces troublesome reference peak height drift that results in rework and cost. Our gas mixture stability not only gives you a longer shelf life, but also reduces wasted gas while simplifying inventory management. All of our shelf-life specifications are backed by real time testing of concentration levels.
We have invested in the research and development of cutting-edge analytical tools and procedures to provide measurements with high levels of sensitivity, linearity and reproducibility. Through the care we take in mixture preparation, as well as our advances in analytical instrumentation and quality control, you are assured accuracy and precision in the mixes you buy, giving you an added measure of certainty in your calibrations and subsequent measurements.
Our technology and procedures ensure that our EPA Protocol and Emissions Monitoring Gases are repeatable with minimal deviation from the stated target.
By investing in the quality of our products and using a proprietary process that pays strict attention to detail in four critical areas, we can consistently provide accurate, precise and stable gases.
All source gases are qualified before purification to ensure quality and compliance with specifications. When producing mixtures with sub-ppm levels of minor components, purification is designed to
Our gravimetric fill and automated dynamic blending ensure mix precision and consistency, and our gravimetric fill procedures minimize propagation of the variance inherent in any process. Each environmental mixture meets stringent quality, operational and/or traceability requirements.
Our analytical instrumentation plus a full suite of NIST SRMs/NTRMs are designed to provide consistent analytical accuracy. These analytical methods are used throughout the production process and as the final step in quality control.
Praxair’s cylinder preparation techniques are based upon the product properties themselves. Surface roughness and surface chemistry promote physical and chemical adsorption or desorption of species, which can change concentration. In addition, the surface can catalyze reactions between components. Praxair’s proprietary cylinder treatments minimize this problem to provide unmatched long-term stability.
