Cyclone® series heatable long pathlength gas cells have been designed with the serious analyst in mind. These high performance, superior quality cells are backed by a comprehensive range of optional upgrades ensuring that they meet every analytical challenge.
Desiccant Storage Caps
Pressure Gauge Kit
Heating Jacket / High Stability Temperature Controller
Benchmark® Series Laser Alignment Accessory
A pair of purge bellows is available for the Cyclone® series gas cells. These fit between the optics box of the cell and the spectrometer to allow the purging of transfer optics with inert gases such as nitrogen. This feature allows absorbances due to atmospheric H₂O and CO₂to be eliminated from spectral measurements. These bellows are designed to fit all Specac gas cells.
These caps are designed to fit over the optical inlet and outlet ports of the Cyclone® series gas cells to seal the transfer optics when the cells are not in use. One of the caps contains a desiccant material which maintains a dry atmosphere within the transfer optics box and extends the life of KBr windows.
A pressure gauge kit is available to fit the Cyclone® series gas cells. Gauges can be specified for low pressure operation (vacuum to 15 psi) and high pressure operation (vacuum to 125 psi - metal bodied cell only). An integral pressure relief valve ensures that cells are automatically depressurised in the event of accidental over pressurisation. Specac recommend the use of a pressure gauge when operating gas cells at elevated pressures.
All of the Cyclone® series gas cells (glass and metal bodied versions) can be upgraded to heatable gas cells by the addition of the appropriate Heating Jacket and High Stability Temperature Controller. The heating jacket simply slides over the gas cell and it can be operated from ambient temperatures up to 200°C.
This accessory allows the visual verification of the optical pathlength through Cyclone® series gas cells. This is especially useful when different pathlengths are regularly used with variable pathlength cells.
