Peak Performer Gas Analysis


PEAK PERFORMER 1 FID: 920-210

Highly sensitive Flame Ionization Detector (FID).

Detection: Methane, Non-Methane Hydrocarbons and Carbon Dioxide.

Matrix Gas: Inert Samples

 

The Peak Performer 1 FID uses a highly sensitive Flame Ionization Detector (FID) which has been designed specifically for process applications in UHP gases.


Peak Labs Data Sheet Performer FID

The FID is used to measure trace impurities down to part per billion levels, while offering a wide linear range for simple, accurate measurements. The PP1 technology has proven to offer a more cost-effective and user friendly alternative to other instruments for similar applications.

In addition, Peak Labs practical experience and ability to customize to suit your applications makes Peak Labs your partner, not just your supplier.
