A rich heritage of air monitoring expertise on show at CEM 2023

Jul 26 2023

SK Elektronik is a family-run business located in Leverkusen, Germany. The company has over 3 decades of experience providing the market with world-class, made-in-Germany, environmental monitoring instrumentation. The company founder, Siegfried Kühn, who sadly passed away this year, left a legacy of creating superb products, whilst using the development of these devices as a platform to educate the air monitoring experts of today and tomorrow to create instruments that will forge a cleaner environment, now and in the future. That legacy will be carried forward by his daughter Nathalie and the rest of the dedicated SK team.

At this year’s CEM Exhibition, SK Elektronik, will show off its highly acclaimed Universal Platform for Analytical Systems (UPAS) – an analytical platform that empowers operators to seamlessly integrate multiple analytical solutions tailored to their specific air monitoring requirements.

UPAS stands out as a versatile platform that adapts to the end user's specific criteria, providing an unsurpassed level of customisation. Its intuitive graphical user interface enables operators to tailor the system to their requirements. Whether integrating UPAS into their own systems or using instruments from SK Elektronik's analytical portfolio, such as the FID range, users have the flexibility to create an analytical set-up that suits their needs perfectly.

A standout feature of UPAS is its recently updated digital pressure control, which provides improved accuracy and long-term stability in air measurement tasks. The integrated dilution probe and flame trap within the detector enhance the platform's safety and efficiency. Furthermore, UPAS boasts its own heated line, extending up to 40 meters, ensuring accurate and reliable measurements even in challenging, industrial environments. With an IP65-rated heated sampling system and the provision of zero gas and burner air through an active charcoal filter and thermal catalyst, UPAS surpasses industry standards for reliability and performance.

SK Elektronik's commitment to innovation is plain to see with UPAS' double-detector system, which enables continuous measurement of CH4 and total hydrocarbons. All UPAS models effectively compensate for oxygen interference on measurements, to further improve the accuracy of the measurement results. The gas distribution block operates autonomously, reducing dependence on the overall system and enhancing operational efficiency.

Alongside UPAS, SK Elektronik will also showcase the Thermo FID, a highly versatile range of instruments ubiquitous to a wide variety of industries for environmental and plant monitoring, research and development, leakage control, exhaust emission control and methane-free measurements. The Thermo FID's electronic system offers many superb functions, including menu-driven operation, fully automatic self-control and operation and failure analysis. The alphanumeric display provides clear instructions for easy maintenance, while the process-controlled and dynamic amplifier analysis ensures optimal performance. By digitising signals directly at the detector, the Thermo FID eliminates distortion caused by poorly shielded or overlength signal routes, guaranteeing precise data analysis.

With their cutting-edge UPAS, SK Elektronik has raised the bar for analytical platforms in air measurement. The platform's versatile features, adaptability, and dedication to precision have made it the perfect solution for many organisations’ air monitoring needs. SK Elektronik's Thermo FID range complements UPAS, while offering versatile and precise instruments for a range of applications. As the industry evolves, SK Elektronik continues to provide world-class technology and unparalleled customer support, solidifying its position as an industry leader in analytical systems.

SK Elektronik's also provide excellent consultancy and customer service setting them apart in the industry. Clients can rely on the company's expertise and support throughout their analytical journey. Whether it's system configuration, troubleshooting, or application-specific guidance, SK Elektronik is committed to delivering exceptional, reliable and prompt service.
