Servomex has announced that it is to move production of its range of GC and Plasma analysers from Canada to its Technical Centre in the UK, during the first half of 2010.

The purpose-built facility, opened in November 2008, will enable Servomex’s GC and Plasma technology to be further developed and enhanced through a range of advanced manufacturing processes.

This includes a state-of-the-art clean room facility, while customers will also benefit from improved sales and support processes – including efficient turnaround for orders and service requirements.

An expanded scope of expertise and advice will be available from Servomex’s technical team, whose knowledge base will be boosted by the relocation of all the key members of the current Plasma technology technical team to the Technical Centre.

“The relocation of Servomex’s GC and Plasma analyser technology production to our Technical Centre will enable us to focus on new research, development and support for this technology,” explained Chris Cottrell, Managing Director of Servomex.

“This move will also ensure we continue to deliver a combination of world-leading gas analysis technologies, which enables our customers to select the most effective solution for their application.”

Servomex’s GC and Plasma analyser technologies were acquired as part of the purchase of Contrôle Analytique in September 2007. The range currently includes the SERVOPRO FID for measurement of total hydrocarbons in air, nitrogen, oxygen and argon, the SERVOPRO Plasma (k2001) for the ppm to ppb measurement of nitrogen in argon or helium, and the SERVOPRO Chroma (k4000) for trace impurity measurements in a variety of gases.

Key applications for the Chroma include air separation, process optimisation and quality control.
