The Process Ion Chromatograph from Metrohm Process Analytics is a flexible system for online monitoring of ionic compounds in aqueous media from ng/L to % concentrations.
With one injection, multiple components can be analysed with automated, intelligent inline sample preparation and injection techniques, says the company.
Different analytical columns, detectors, and additional equipment are available from Metrohm in order to enable users to adapt their applications to a wide range of process requirements.
Key features include: high precision analyses for a spectrum of analytes with multiple types of detectors; inline eluent preparation to ensure consistently stable baselines; fully automated sampling and calibration; and rugged enclosures designed to IP65 specifications and suitable for process environments.
The company adds that ion chromatography is utilised in the power sector to measure corrosion indicators and inhibitors, as well as to monitor the purity of water in different areas of a plant.
Its low detection limits and superior baseline stability enable analysis of trace impurities – even in ultrapure water. The large array of analytes able to be detected makes this approach a good fit for environmental and wastewater monitoring.
