908 Devices, a pioneer of purpose-built analytical devices for chemical analysis, has announced the introduction of G908, a universal petrochemical analyser that combines the company’s patented and award-winning high-pressure mass spectrometry (HPMS) technology with the separating power of ballistic gas chromatography (GC). The combination of HPMS and GC provides exceptionally fast compositional analysis, improving efficiency and providing cost savings in use cases that range from exploration and extraction to manufacturing and retail.
With G908, users can rapidly perform testing in-line, at-line, in the laboratory and at remote field-based settings. With this purpose-built petrochemical analyser, operators of all skill levels can monitor process streams for specific compounds, detect problems quickly and facilitate immediate action. G908 weighs only 28 pounds and enables broader analysis capabilities by positively identifying and quantifying a range of analytes, including low-level impurities, within complex product stream matrices at the point of need.
“Low prices, regulations, market dynamics and workforce fluctuations all continue to impact this global industry. Increasing efficiency and reducing cost is more critical now than ever,” says Dr. Kevin J. Knopp, CEO and co-founder, 908 Devices. “Our company’s mission is to democratise chemical analysis by way of mass spectrometry and with the launch of G908 we are helping customers achieve critical measurements with ease and confidence, leading to substantial time and cost savings.”
“With the introduction of G908, operators are now equipped with a smaller, simpler and faster detection device,” says Dr. Graham Shelver, Commercial Leader, Applied Markets, 908 Devices. “By combining ballistic GC with HPMS, we are providing a universal platform for the hydrocarbon processing industry that can be leveraged for in-line, at-line, laboratory and remote field-based qualitative and quantitative analysis that is as easy to use as a conventional GC, but with the levels of sensitivity and molecular compound identification that this industry requires.”
