GIA 522

Bubble Gas Analyzer

The GIA 522 gas inclusion analysis system was developed to analyze small to extremely small gas inclusion in technical glasses, ceramics or minerals.

Fully automated analysis sequence with customized designed and manufactured sample holders and sample break chambers (manual or automatic) allow reliable measurements even on smallest gas bubbles.

  • Technical Data

The samples are penetrated with a special piercing needle under high vacuum in a gold-plated stainless steel chamber. The trapped gas expands via a transfer line into the measurement chamber. The analyzer detection limit is better than 10 picoliter partial volumes. Reliable measurements can therefore be made with even the smallest of gas bubbles. Both concentration and partial pressures of individual components in the gas inclusion volume can be precisely determined.

Analysis and data evaluation are fully automated. The InProcess software controls the entire measurement procedure, device calibration and data acquisition, evaluation and reporting. Another program component processes the measurement results and ensures problem-free data exchange with customer-specific LIMS software.
