Gas Analyser Wins 2013 Golden Gas Award

Mar 04 2013

Tiger Optics LLC (USA) recently announced that its VROOM multi-species gas analyser has won the Golden Gas Award from Gases & Instrumentation International Magazine in the Gas Analysis & Detection category. It is the fourth “gold” award won by the manufacturer since the 2008 debut of the annual competition.

The VROOM offers a dramatic advance in monitoring for moisture, methane, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, among many other molecules. It is a novel and modern analytical instrument, capable of monitoring up to four molecules with a single sensor, thereby saving space and time. Applications include bulk gas monitoring and measurement of calibration standards and engine emissions.

To achieve multi-species analysis, the VROOM uses highly reflective mirrors in a single sensing system that utilises Tiger’s patented Continuous Wave Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CW-CRDS) technology. The use of mirrors distinguishes the VROOM from Tiger’s multi-species Prismatic analyser, which uses Brewster’s angle prism retro-reflectors.

The VROOM was unveiled in October 2012 at the Automotive Testing Expo North America in Novi, Michigan. In recent months, Tiger has fielded requests to deploy the VROOM in markets beyond the automotive industry.

In announcing the winners, Gases & Instrumentation said its 2013 contest drew more than 45 entries in nine categories. “This is the finest array of products we have ever witnessed,” said Paul Nesdore, the magazine’s publisher. “Our judges, representing decades of experience in the technology of gases, had difficult choices to make among a large group of products representing the cutting-edge of technology and implementation.”

“We’re so grateful for this honour,” said Lisa Bergson, Tiger’s founder and chief executive. “The VROOM combines power and practicality by offering great sensitivity and detection capability, while obviating the need for calibration, consumables and labour, thereby freeing up folks for more value-added work.”
