A new global standard has been set for carbon dioxide product analysis by Linde – using Unisensor technology called Carboscan, developed in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Carboscan was selected as one of only two technology platforms for this new global standard following rigorous testing and design modifications to satisfy the stringent requirements of Linde. This includes a completely new module providing additional quality control features.

In recognition of this, Linde awarded Unisensor the prestigious Tier One critical vendor status, which means Carboscan has been approved for use in CO2 product analytical applications worldwide, without the need for additional testing by their local businesses.

This significant investment will bring many benefits to Linde operations around the world like Carboscan’s ability to rapidly detect up to 46 impurities in carbon dioxide at the lowest detectable limits, monitor product quality on-line at multiple points during storage and loading as well as test and certify batch tanks and truck trailers, using a fully automated simple and fast operator interface.

This gives Linde total control over product quality. The new global standard incorporating Carboscan technology will exceed the increasing demands for greater quality control and provides full product traceability for Linde clients; an important factor especially to those in the food and beverage industries.

“It is an honour to be chosen as the preferred technology partner by Linde,” says Gary Robson, Head of Sales - Beverage - at Unisensor. “To be selected and then awarded Tier One status is a great achievement for our R&D and Engineering team. They thrive on new challenges, on this project they had to think outside the box and came up with a unique and novel solution.”

Robson summarises, “We are delighted that our solution meets the high requirements of Linde. The new platform has many benefits not only in developing markets, but in mature ones too. We would like to thank our partners at Linde for providing their in-depth knowledge and support during this project. We look forward to working with Linde and rolling out the new platform world-wide.”
