Carrier-Gas-Free GC BTEX Analyser The New Frontier for Real-Time Monitoring of Aromatics


Date: 09:00:00 - May 22 2019
Speakers: Carlo Bruno

BTEX compounds (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene) are a group of Volatile Organic Compound (VOCs) that are responsible for various environmental and human health problems. The key sources of VOCs are industrial processes (especially those involving solvents) vehicle emissions, leakage in underground storage tanks, pipeline leaks, surface spills, refinery facility leaks, vehicle and aircraft emissions, paints and adhesive

Accurate and reliable BTEX testing is crucial not only in preventing exposure and contamination that can affect human health and the environment, but it is also necessary to comply with European Directive and with EPA guidelines.

The BTEX monitoring is a popular practice nowadays: they are straightforward to monitor together, and provide a well-rounded picture of VOCs and are present in most urban areas. BTEX are monitored for both ambient applications, and industrial health and safety applications. The best available and reliable technology to detect and quantify BTEX in a sub-ppb concentration is a Gas Chromatograph.

PyxisGC BTEX is a complete Micro Gas Chromatograph for real time environment monitoring of BTEX and VOCs. It is our latest fulfilment and is the most compact, precise, reliable and cost effective device on the market. Thanks to the lab-on-a-chip technology, PyxisGC BTEX is still a complete Gas Chromatograph but it can assure faster analysis, highest precision and no additional gas canisters required that means lower costs of ownership and periodic maintenance.
