Odor Characterization at a Gelatin Factory Using SIFT-MS

In this application note, SIFT-MS is evaluated for odor source characterization at a gelatin factory, together with benchmarking of the effectiveness of an ultraviolet (UV) photolysis technology used for odor mitigation. SIFT-MS is very effective in both applications due to its wide dynamic range, trace-level sensitivity, real-time detection, and lack of requirement for sample prep or pre-concentration.

High-Throughput Analysis of Volatile Compounds in Air, Water, and Soil Using SIFT-MS

In this application note, we demonstrate high-throughput analysis of BTEX compounds in air, water and soil.  We demonstrate how SIFT-MS enables excellent differentiation of the ethylbenzene isomer from the xylene isomers using known O2+ reagent ion chemistry for both air and water.  This approach can be applied in real-time and in high throughput applications.

Hydrogen Sulfide in Natural Gas

We present the results of the first study where SIFT-MS was used to detect and quantify hydrogen sulfide in natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).  SIFT-MS very effectively detects and quantifies hydrogen sulfide to mid part-per-billion levels in natural gas and LPG (due to the need for dilution).  The degree of souring of natural gas, in addition to determining its light to medium hydrocarbon composition, can be determined.
