Hydrogen Analyzer Hot Vacuum Extraction System

Hydrogen Analyzer Hot Vacuum Extraction System

Used to analyze metals and alloys for hydrogen and deuterium. This instrument has been fitted with a residual gas analyzer (RGA) to analyze to composition of the evolved gases.

  • Samples are dropped from the loading tree into a furnace operating at a user defined temperature
  • The system is isolated and the pressure change is monitored until a stable rate is achieved
  • The amount of evolved gas in ppm is determined based on pressure change and the system temperature and volume
  • The composition of the evolved gas can be checked using the attached CIS-100 gas analyzer
  • Installed in 1997, RGA added in 1999
