The new compact version of the Hiden Biostream gas composition monitor, the QIC Biostream-C, enables automated monitoring of up to 80 independent gas streams yet has a footprint of just 0.35 square metres.
Capable of analysing gas streams with flow rates from 4mL/min up to 10L/min, the system is suited to diverse application areas including fermentation off-gas analysis and biogas and bio-enzyme production monitoring.
Analysis is provided by the integrated Hiden quadrupole mass spectrometer with triple-mass filter for optimum stability, sensitivity and up-time longevity.
The Proteus rotary stream selector valve utilizes leak-tight self-compensating face seals with zero cross-talk between the selected and non-selected inputs. A directdrive microstepping motor ensures fast actuation with typical feed-line switching times of less than a second.
Operation is fully automated, with manual overide giving access to all system performance and timing functions. The system can be bench mounted or freestanding, and the Proteus valve submodule mounted remotely if preferred.
