The MicroSAM is a miniaturized process gas chromatograph (GC) in an Ex d enclosure. Through consistent use of microsystem technology silicon wafer technology), all analytical components are concentrated in the smallest possible area.
The design particularly enables a distributed installation close to the process.
The distributed field installation reduces investment costs, and opens up new fields of application, e.g.:
Installation in plant areas where mounting within an analyzer shed is not possible.
Installation at remote locations without extended infrastructure
Reduction in laboratory analyses through online measurements
Low space requirements in analysis cabinets reduce investment costs
Low maintenance effort and gas/energy consumption reduce operating costs
Live injection permits representative sample injections
Maintenance-free, valveless separating column switching with electronic pressure controllers
The use of several micro thermal conductivity detectors (multidetection) provides exact measuring results and also validation possibilities
Versatile networking possibilities for central maintenance and secure data transfer
Remote monitoring with Windows-based software and Ethernet communication
Simplified servicing through replacement of modules
