The quadrupole Mass Spectrometer enables speedy analysis of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM). The speed of this spectrometer is not affected by the design of its multi-point inlet. The FASTValve from Extrel has been exclusively designed for providing reliable and rapid ambient air monitoring. This device is supplied in 40 or 80-sample port configurations. It is possible to double the sample handling capacity of the FASTValve in order to handle even larger sample sizes, as shown in Figure 1.
Figure 1. 160-sample port MAX300-IG
This Max300-IG shown in Figure 1 provides complete plant coverage with its capacity of handling up to 160 sample streams. Extrel offers the standard rotary valve inlets range, which is suitable for smaller plants where fewer sample points need to be monitored.
Key Features of Extrel FASTValve
The key features of the Extrel FASTValve include:
- A multi-port, high-flow, rotary valve that is exclusively built for ambient air monitoring
- Capable of providing many types of statistical reports using Extrel’s Questor 5 web-based interface, which can be applied to address 21 CFR Part 11 requirements
- With the combination of Electron Multiplier and Dual Faraday Detector and autoranging, the MAX300 can attain a continuous dynamic range of 100% as low as ppb levels
Extrel Questor 5 Software
The Questor 5 software from Extrel not only provides reliable and precise analytical data, but also offers a wide range of industry standard communication options. Some of the options include analog and digital communication options, Ethernet, Profibus, bidirectional MODBUS, OPC, and MODBUS RTU or TCP/IP.
Creation of statistical reports like time weighted average reporting is also possible with the Questor 5 software. The data is reported either by the component or the sample point, which is then exported to a .csv or an .xls file. A shift report created using the Questor 5 software is shown in Figure 2.
