Tiger Optics LLC has achieved its fourth ‘gold’ accolade from Gases & Instrumentation International Magazine since 2008, after its VROOM™ multi-species gas analyzer won the Golden Gas Award.
The award was given for the Gas Analysis & Detection category, with the VROOM offering a ‘dramatic advance’ in monitoring for moisture, methane, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, among many other molecules.
A novel and modern analytical instrument, capable of monitoring up to four molecules with a single sensor, applications of the VROOM include bulk gas monitoring and measurement of calibration standards and engine emissions.
To achieve multi-species analysis, the VROOM uses highly reflective mirrors in a single sensing system that utilizes Tiger’s patented Continuous Wave Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CW-CRDS) technology. The use of mirrors distinguishes the VROOM from Tiger’s multi-species Prismatic analyzer, which uses Brewster’s angle prism retro-reflectors.
The VROOM was unveiled in October 2012 at the Automotive Testing Expo North America in Novi, Michigan. In recent months, Tiger has fielded requests to deploy the VROOM in markets beyond the automotive industry.
“We’re so grateful for this honor,” said Lisa Bergson, Tiger’s founder and chief executive. “The VROOM combines power and practicality by offering great sensitivity and detection capability, while obviating the need for calibration, consumables and labor, thereby freeing up folks for more value-added work.”
Tiger Optics LLC is busy showcasing four of its newest laser-based products at the Pittcon Conference and Expo in Philadelphia this week.
Electronic Fluorocarbons (EFC), headquartered in Massachusetts, utilizes the latest technology for the purification and microanalysis of its legacy fluorinated specialty gases and rare gases for the medical and electronics semiconductor manufacturing industries.
As we head in to 2018, we look back on a very interesting changing market for krypton (Kr), xenon (Xe) and neon (Ne) in 2017. Ne supply this year continued to increase as new plants came on-stream while the demand was growing slowly after the big decline of 2016.
Sherwood Valve, LLC has launched the company’s new, comprehensive 80+ page compressed gas catalog including industrial gas valves, medical valves, propane cylinder valves, alternative energy valves, specialty valves and pressure relief devices.
