Process Gas Testing

CK performs sample collection and laboratory analysis to determine gas composition for a variety of applications and systems. Test results feature NIST traceable standards capable of detecting:

  • Argon (Ar)
  • Carbon dioxide (CO2)
  • Carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Helium (He)
  • Hydrogen (H2)
  • Methane (CH4)
  • Nitrogen (N2)
  • Nitrogen dioxide (NO2)
  • Oxygen (O2)
  • Particulate matter (PM)
  • Total halogenated hydrocarbons
  • Total hydrocarbons (THC)
  • Water content (H2O) or dew point

 

MEDICAL GASES & SUPPLIED AIR RESPIRATORS (SARS)

Medical gases and breathing air evaluates USP, NF, or OEM specifications for grade “D” breathing air, NFPA piping purity, and NFPA medical gas concentration.

 

AEROSPACE

For aerospace applications, compressed nitrogen gas is usually used to fill and pressurize aircraft components such as tires and struts. Nitrogen is inert–it will not support fire if released under pressure. Consequently, FAA regulations require most tires contain less than five percent oxygen. Moisture and oxygen can also cause corrosion. Impurities like particles and moisture can impede moving parts and cause imbalances in tires.

 

MANUFACTURING

Manufacturing process gases can be evaluated to verify supplier specifications and to meet quality assurance requirements. Distribution systems can be evaluated by sampling multiple distribution points. Our independent test will determine how your gas compares with its design specifications.

 

FUELS

Fuels can be evaluate for combustion properties and potential emissions pollutants, including landfill gas (LFG) fuel methane content.
