Laboratory analysis of SF6 and alternative gases

Regardless of whether we are involved in your research and development projects, in the production phase or in critical cases in the operation of gas-filled plants - we analyse the gas mixtures you use on-site or in the laboratory. Our analytics specialists also support you with their many years of experience and outstanding expertise in the field of gas mixtures (gravimetry, manometry and volumetry), gas compositions and also associated hazard assessments or EHS audits.

For the analytics, we have the latest measuring equipment at our disposal, such as infrared spectrometers, gas chromatographs and a scanning electron microscope with elemental analysis. The various analyses are performed in accordance with the relevant standards such as IEC 60376 and IEC 60480. Various laboratory areas are certified in accordance with IEC 17025.

Our extensive range of services includes

  • Analysis of SF6 for decomposition products and impurities
  • SF6 gas composition
  • Analysis of Novec 4710 gas mixtures in matrix N2 and CO2 for decomposition products and impurities
  • Gas composition of Novec 4710 gas mixtures in matrix N2 and CO2
  • Analysis of Novec 5110 gas mixtures in matrix N2 and CO2 for decomposition products and impurities
  • Gas composition of Novec 5110 gas mixtures in matrix N2 and CO2
  • Analysis of dry and synthetic air for decomposition products and impurities
  • Gas composition of dry and synthetic air
  • Determination of the gas moisture by means of different technical procedures which correspond to the usual standards and are based on P2O5 phosphorus pentoxide, chilled mirror as well as capacitive and optical measurement procedures.
All services described above include the delivery of an official test report stating the declared measurement accuracies (and detection limits). If we detect the generation/formation of solids in your gases, we can also extend the range of services offered to include solids analysis using a scanning electron microscope (SEM).

Start directly?

We would be pleased to help you determine the gas composition in your gas compartments or gas containers. If you want to arrange for a gas measurement, simply contact us with the following information:

  • Are you intending to carry out a measurement on-site or an analysis using laboratory measurements?
  • Which medium is the analysis dealing with?
  • Do you have the necessary equipment to extract the medium or can we support you in the sampling process with additional equipment?
