Service PM Dave Harris is at the AWI institute Alfred Wenger Institute in Potsdam this week, where he has been servicing a Sercon HS2022 IRMS for Andreas Marent.
The HS2022 is the most sensitive small radius IRMS in the world. Combining superior analytical performance with reliability, flexibility, ease of use and maintenance, the HS2022 IRMS ensures that all your scientific needs are met. Backed by over 20 years of development with a no compromise approach to its engineering integrity, Sercon provides the ultimate isotope ratio mass spectrometer.
This technology is available in both continuous flow and dual inlet mode and can be interfaced to a wide range of sample preparation devices and inlets. In this instance the dual inlet instrument, installed in 2018, is interfaced to a laser fluorination system, looking at 18O in Silica Oxides in the Alfred Wenger Institute (AWI), under the management of Andreas Marent.
The AWI is a climate research operation, exploring the Polar regions and the oceans, which play a central role in the global climate system.
Our annual service contracts help ensure the best possible instrument performance at all times, and is also an opportunity to discuss any additional analytical needs. As well as an annual on-site Preventative Maintenance service, our service contracts include unlimited remote support by phone and email, free remote dial-in support and discounted spares and consumables from Sercon.
The HS2022 IRMS incorporates many high level design features, including an extremely robust, linear and sensitive source, a stainless steel flight tube, a thoria-coated filament, and high resolution amplifiers for a large dynamic range.
