On Jan. 15th 2022, while running test measurements, our miniRUEDI was able to catch the pressure wave produced by the Hunga Tonga volcanic eruption.
After a couple of months Entracer’s first portable membrane inlet mass spectrometer system (aka miniRUEDI) is ready to determine gas concentrations in the environment. A few applications that exemplify the flexibility of this instrument:
- Long-term monitoring of the gas composition in a trial run for radioactive waste disposal (Tomonaga et al., 2019, Appl. Geochem.)
- Targeting the gas-clay interactions in laboratory trials (Giroud et al., 2018, Appl. Geochem.)
- Determine changes in the noble-gas composition at CO2 capture plants (Weber et al., 2021, Int. J. Greenh. Gas Con.)
Many thanks are due to Matthias Brennwald at Gasometrix GmbH for supporting its construction!
A few more custom parts and our portable membrane inlet mass spectrometer will be ready to run.
Entracers’ first portable mass spectrometer system is getting a more concrete shape. It should be operational within a couple of months.
The first “serious” piece of equipment is growing! You can guess what is this device…
