From PID's to portable GC's and Beyond
I had the honor of presenting the annual Frederick F. Spaziani scholarship award on April 26, 2012 alongside Dr. Walter Johnson at Suffolk University to two very talented young women on theastrophysics track: Elizabeth Rodriguez and Amanda Lewis (L to R above). Fred Spaziani co-founded HNU Systems, Inc. with Jack Driscoll in 1973. Together they developed the first commercialphotoionization detector that is now the most important method for measuring volatile organic compounds. Fred left us at too early an age and the award is to help students in science and/or engineering reach their full potential.
|High performance real-time detection system|
| Model 312|
The HNU Model 312 portable Gas Chromatograph (GC) is designed for chromatographic separation, identification, and quantification of chemical components in gas or liquid samples. This is one of our featured fast GC's which utilize the VICI Valco Inc. resistively heated columns which is the subject of an upcoming presentation in the American Industrial Hygiene Conference & Exposition Real-Time Detection Systems Podium Session.
Presentation date/time: Tuesday June 19, 2012 10:50am-11:10am Fast GC-PID/FID Analyses Using Resistively Heated Columns for Rapid Analyses in the Field
Headspace- VOCs in soil or water
Quality control- residual monomer in resins, residual solvents in paper or food, testing gas masks
EPA Method 21- to 30,000 ppm
Emergency response- spills from trucks & trains
Fugitive emissions- leak detection
Arson investigations- find trace accelerants
Confined space entry- health & safety
