Hiden have introduced the DLS-20 mass spectrometer which uses a design based on Hiden’s established triple-stage mass filter technology and incorporates enlarged molybdenum rods of 20-mm diameter for increased mass resolution and sensitivity with particular application to precision measurement of low molecular weight species.
It is particularly suited to refined nuclear and fusion process applications. The system operates in both the Zone I and Zone II stability regions. Zone I tuning is for general gas analysis over a broad mass range. Zone II enables high mass resolution for light gases, typically up to 10 amu. It can switch smoothly for operation in either region.
