Special applications

Developing and building gas chromatographs for ambient air monitoring is one of our business lines.
We supply to environmental monitoring authorities and industries for mesuring the groups of compounds below. If you are interested in other compounds or applications, please send us a request for more information.

Some examples:


Air filters

With our gas chromatographs very low concentrations of hydrocarbons can be measured. These can be used for controlling the functioning of purifying filters. Some manufacturers use our analysers to control their filter products.

Others use the system to save on filter replacement, as they only have to be replaced when the analyser shows the filter is no longer effective. An individual offer can be made for your application.


Flare control

A new application is to enable production plants to save on flare burning. This application is described in a new data sheet.


Pyrolysis gas

One of the new types of energy is pyrolysis gas that is made out of different types of organic material by heating it under exclusion of oxygen.

Synspec can measure the typical mixtures that are formed, with low oxygen content, but high amounts of carbon monoxide and low boiling hydrocarbons. See the data sheet



Another type of energy generation is by biological processes. Biogases are different in composition from pyrolysis gas, with high concentrations of carbon dioxide and water as well as low boiling hydrocarbons. See the data sheet


Diving gas

The gas mixtures used at high pressure for divers contain a high amount of helium, besides the normal gases as present at ambient pressure: oxygen, nitrogen, argon, methane, carbon dioxide etc.

The results are calculated as required by the users as partial pressure.


Stack emissions of carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide

Many industrial processes have these 3 compounds as byproduct. All three are greenhouse gases. Synspec can offer in combination with LSE a solution for these gases: the Synspec Alpha 121 Methane / carbondioxide analyser and the LSE N2O analyser. See data sheet
