NEW HALO KA Max Models

Now Also Available for NH3 and CH4

The new HALO KA Max H2O, based on Tiger Optics' latest platform, is our most sensitive H2O analyzer ever with a detection limit of 100 ppt in all important semi bulk gases. Now we extend its ppt detection performance to two additional critical analytes, NH3 and CH4, to offer the ultimate process protection.

Measuring H2O and HF Impurities in NF3 Gas

Nitrogen Fluoride (NF3) has several important industrial uses today, including manufacturing of semiconductor chips, flat panel displays, and solar cells. With increasing demand for LED / OLED displays, the global market for NF3 is expected to continue to soar over the next several years.

In the electronics industry, the main use for NF3 gas is for cleaning process chambers in the manufacturing of silicon chips. The benefits of using NF3 compared to other cleaning agents include safety, stability at room temperature, ease of handling, and lower greenhouse gas emissions than its predecessors.

Tiger Optics HALO product family can detect down to single-digit parts-per-billion (ppb) levels of H2O and HF in NF3, guaranteeing product purity for the end-users. The main advantages of Tiger’s CRDS over incumbent technologies like FTIR, for this application, are:

  • Significantly lower gas consumption
  • Excellent accuracy
  • Long term stability
  • Ease of use

Trace Moisture Measurement over Wide Range of Sample Pressure—Now Down to 0 psig

The popular Spark H2O for industrial gas applications now features new models that operate at lower sample pressures (less than 10 psig). From Air Separation Units (ASUs) to low-pressure moisture generators, in some applications it is difficult to continuously sustain high sample pressure. The Spark’s new low pressure options allow accurate H2O measurements at pressures as low as 0 psig.

Check out the Spark H2O Brochure for more information on the new reduced pressure models and find out more about the advantages of the Spark for use in ASUs in our Application Note: Cost-Effective Purity Analysis in the Cryogenic Air Separation Process.
