Gas transmission cell in various sizes
Based on the White cell principle of multiple light passes between an arrangement of reflecting mirrors, Cyclone™ gas cells are available in three sizes:
Cyclone C2™ – fixed or Variable pathlengths ranging from 0.5m to 2.5m
Cyclone C5™ – fixed or Variable pathlengths ranging from 1m to 8m
Cyclone C10™ – fixed or Variable pathlengths ranging from 2.1m to 10.6m
Cyclone™ series gas cells are suitable for operation in all modern FT-IR spectrometers using the Specac Benchmark™ baseplate provided as standard.
Excellent build quality
Cells are available as standard with a borosilicate glass body for operation at ambient temperatures and pressures ranging from vacuum to 15 p.s.i. Protected gold mirrors, internal and external components made from nickel-plated aluminium and stainless steel, and Viton® 'O' rings are combined to ensure the highest chemicals compatibility and protection from leaks.
Vacuum / gas inlet and outlet taps, KBr windows and a purgeable transfer optics box further enhance this already highly featured range.
Upgradeable long pathlength gas cell
Cyclone's™ impressive list of optional features means that any analytical challenge can be met. Variable pathlength mirror carriages, and a range of fixed pathlength mirror carriages can be used within a single gas cell body to greatly enhance analytical flexibility and reduce costs.
Nickel-plated aluminium bodies can be specified for high pressure operation up to 125 p.s.i, and heating jackets / high stability temperatures up to 200°C.
Purge bellows allow the transfer optics to be used under inert gas atmospheres (e.g. nitrogen) in applications where the elimination of atmospheric H2O and CO2 absorbances is required.
Durable long pathlength FTIR gas cell
To ensure perfect operation and freedom from unwanted impurities, a number of unique features have been incorporated into the design and manufacture of the Cyclone™ series. The cells are completely free from adhesives and all of the Viton® 'O' ring seals are carefully pre-baked to eliminate any contamination from solvents or out-gassing. Internal screws have small bleed holes drilled into them to prevent any trapped pockets of gas causing sample cross contamination.
CE Compliant long pathlength gas cell
All Cyclone series heated gas cell systems are CE compliant ensuring that they can be operated safely at all times under the recommended conditions.
