The VROOM™ multi-species gas analyser from Tiger Optics LLC has won the Golden Gas Award from Gases & Instrumentation International Magazine, in the Gas Analysis & Detection category.
The accolade is the fourth ‘gold’ award won by the manufacturer since the 2008 debut of the annual competition.
The VROOM offers a ‘dramatic advance’ in monitoring for moisture, methane, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, among many other molecules. It is a novel and modern analytical instrument, capable of monitoring up to four molecules with a single sensor, thereby saving space and time.
Applications 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 utilises 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 analyser, 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 claims it has fielded requests to deploy the VROOM in markets beyond the automotive industry.
Tiger Optics LLC has introduced the LaserTrace 3xTM analyser for advanced chipmakers requiring heightened monitoring of moisture, a contaminant, and source of oxygen that interferes with deposition processes.
For a fourth year, Inc. magazine has named Tiger Optics LLC in its 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the US.
