Applied Energy Systems (AES), provider of high and ultra-high purity gas systems, services and solutions, has received a third contract with Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) to support the gas handling requirements for its experimental beamlines.

The research laboratory boasts one of the most advanced synchrotron facilities in the world for X-ray imaging and high-resolution energy analysis, enabling the study of material properties and functions with nanoscale resolution and sensitivity.

Under the new contract, AES will provide systems and services to build out a complex, comprehensive Gas Handling System (GHS) for its X-Ray Powder Diffraction (XPD) Beamline.

The lab’s innovative beamline experimentation utilises a variety of inert, toxic, highly toxic, corrosive, flammable, pyrophoric, and other hazardous classified gases that require flexible, safe delivery to the sample environments where experiments take place. While AES has been able to meet much of those needs with systems from its VERSA-GASTM line of vSourceTM Gas Source Systems, including gas cabinets, gas panels, and rack mount systems, it has also developed a suite of custom-engineered equipment, or applied solutions, to work optimally within the lab’s environment and support distinct experimental demands.

“We are thrilled to continue to support the exciting innovation taking place at Brookhaven National Laboratory,” said Jim Murphy, General Manager of AES.

“We understand how critical gas purity and precision are to experimental environments such as the National Synchrotron Light Source II facility and we are dedicated to providing researchers with the safe, comprehensive gas delivery solutions to help them achieve accurate results and ultimately drive scientific breakthroughs,” Murphy added.
