Outgassing Studies

Analysts use Outgassing Studies to determine the chemical and physical properties of materials that are under various temperature and pressure conditions. Outgassing research analyzes materials used in the production of Aerospace and Semiconductor devices. This application is also well-suited to analyze devices such as Medical/Surgical Equipment, Automotive Parts and High Precision Ceramics, where high quality results are critical for successful research studies.

To perform Outgassing Studies, Mass Spectrometers that provide high sensitivity and high resolution are needed. Extrel MAX and MAX-LT™ Mass Spectrometer Systems meet these needs. Along with high sensitivity up to 6 mA/Torr, the MAX and MAX-LT Systems give users the ability to measure both water and other possible contaminants. Extrel’s Merlin Automation™ Data System provides the user with the ability to monitor outgassing during a short experiment, continuously for days or even weeks.
