TESTA Analytical Solutions Ltd has developed the Solvent Line Monitor, a programmable high sensitivity software for diagnosing gas bubbles in HPLC, Ion chromatography, and flow chemistry systems.
Temperature, pressure, reagent concentration, or agitation are all common factors that reduce the saturation point of liquids, resulting in sulfate retention rates, unexpected adjustments in peak areas, irregular pump outages, and excessive back pressures. Similarly, gas bubbles in flow chemistry systems are also a significant concern which can negatively affect correct dosage of reagents resulting in a sub-optimal or unsuccessful reaction.
As such, a reliable diagnosis of air / gas bubbles and remediation of the problem are vital to ensure the optimal operation of any liquid chromatography or flow chemistry system.
TESTA Analytical''s new Solvent Line Monitor supports up to two optical sensors capable of detecting bubbles in real-time, allowing for constant feedback on your liquid chromatography or flow chemistry systems. This innovative device provides an optical and acoustic alarm as well as a digital output that might be used to stop a chromatography or flow chemistry pump before its operation.
The compact and easy-to-use Solvent Line Monitor is programmable in terms of sensitivity, mode of operation, and setting bubble detection alarms. Each Solvent Line Monitor is designed with a powerful PC app that allows for different actions to be taken once an alarm status is detected, e.g. a simple beep or a stop signal.
