• Monitoring workplace exposure limits


The Series 8900 Analyzer provides direct measurement of Acrylonitrile and n-Butyl Acrylate in ambient air. This instrument is utilized in industrial plants to monitor workplace exposure limits.

The Series 8900 Analyzer employs a flame ionization detector (FID) as the sensing element. A dual column configuration with a timed backflush to vent is used to strip off moisture and heavier hydrocarbons. A precut column is used in series with the analytical column. At sample injection, a fixed volume of sample is carried to the pre-cut column. Backflush is timed so that only the Acrylonitrile, n-Butyl Acrylate, and other similar components are eluted to the analytical column. Contaminants on the pre-cut column are backflushed to vent. Acrylonitrile and n-Butyl Acrylate are separated from any potentially interfering components on the analytical column and elute to the detector for analysis.
