Ionizers and Ion Optics

Ionizers and Ion Optics

Extrel’s Ionizers are built for high performance and are offered in a number of different ionization techniques, with a broad span of options. Extrel manufactures both standard off-the-shelf Ion Optics as well as custom designed devices to fit customer application requirements. We offer devices for energy analysis as well as ion transport.

Note: Ionizer options for our MAX-QMS and MAX-LT research lines of MS systems cannot be readily applicated to our MAX300 lines of laboratory and process MS systems

Electron Ionization (EI)  Extrel’s EI ion sources include an Einzel lens stack and are designed for high transmission to give you the best resolution, sensitivity, and abundance sensitivity. They are offered with a wide range of options including, choice of filament material, open or enclosed ion regions, and axial or right angle designs.

Chemical Ionization (CI)  When a softer ionization technique is required, a CI source should be used. Our CI sources include an Einzel lens stack and come with the ability to do both EI and CI ionization. Options include multi-port inlets and a choice of filament material.

Atmospheric Pressure Ionization (API) – The API source is ideal for parts per trillion (ppt) detection of atmospheric pollutants or trace impurities in pure gases.

Ion-Molecule Reaction Ionization  The ion molecule reaction source allows you to do Protonation of species and also acts as a CI ionizer with variable reaction times and distances. It has a number of gas inlets and offers exceptionally precise reaction control.

Ion Optics  A variety of geometries is available for transferring ions throughout a vacuum system.
