On-line gas analysis in high purity gas production

The modern technologies in radio-electronics, cryogenic, laser, space techniques, medicine demand more and more high-purity gases, making more and more strict requirements under the concentration of the micro impurities. The technology of production of high-purity gases demands modern analytical methods both for operative control of the technological process and for quality assurance of raw materials, intermediate and end products.


The process mass spectrometry is the method which allows solving problems of analytical control at all stages of the high-purity gases production.

Bulk microstructure and local elastic properties of carbon nanocomposites  studied by Impulse Acoustic Microscopy technique

It was shown the impulse acoustic microscopy is a powerful technique for studying the internal microstructure and local elastic measuring in the bulk of nanocomposite materials.

It was the first time when the occurrence of complicated fractal mesostructure in the bulk of nanocomposites has been shown.

The efficient agglomeration of carbon nanofiller in the bulk of carbon nanocomposites has been demonstrated for 2D carbon nanoforms.

Local elastic measurements demonstrated sufficient elastic homogeneity of carbon nanocomposites despite the occurrence of bulk mesostructure.

Ultrasonic elastic measurements demonstrate the minimal influence of nanofiller on the elasticity of carbon nanocomposites for a wide spectrum of carbon nanoforms being used as nanofiller – from exfoliated graphite up to carbon nanotubes and thick graphene stacks.

MicroXRF analysis of the ancient icons
XROS MF30 x-ray analytical microscope-microprobe allows analyzing various art objects for the distribution of chemical elements in it with a high spatial resolution and elemental sensitivity.

The study revealed the presence in icon paints of such elements as Ca, K, Zn, Cu, Ni, Co, Mn, Fe, Sr, Ba, Hg, Pb.


Information about the presence of certain elements in the pigments of paint helps in determining the age of the art object. And their spatial distribution gives information about the technique of writing the image – for example, the technique of multi-layer painting, technique a la prima, etc.

MicroXRF analysis of the gunshot residuals
XROS MF30 x-ray analytical microscope-microprobe allows analysis of shot residual with a high spatial resolution and elemental sensitivity.

As a result of investigation, the presence on the target material (paper and textile) of micro inclusions of such elements as Mn, Fe, Ni, Cu, Zn, Pb was detected. The density of these points decreases with distance from the bullet hole, it means that they are products of the shot.

Using the built-in software of the mathematical methods, the size of points with micro inclusions was estimated. The maximum diameter of micro inclusions is estimated to be about 40 microns. Most micro inclusions have a smaller diameter.

MicroXRF analysis of the horse harness fragment

The method of X-ray fluorescence mapping makes it possible to obtain maps of the element distribution, which can explain technical and technological features of archaeological objects made of metal, the composition of alloys used for the base and the ornament. It is very important that during the experiment it was possible to show the applicability of the method to detect the ornament invisible on the surface even before the restorative intervention. Since the method is nondestructive, it was done without any harm and without changes in the material structure of the object.

Determination of MDEA and piperazine content in aqueous amines

Parameter monitoring procedure in natural gas amine treatment to remove CO2 during Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) production differs from analytical algorithms developed for removal processes of sour components (CO2, H2S, SO2, R-SH) from associated gases or from refinery hydrocarbon gases. Both technical approaches include compositional analysis of amines and gas streams at inlet and outlet of an amine treating unit. If mains gas with low concentrations of hydrogen sulphide and other sulphur-containing substances is used as a feedstock, then in the LNG Compressor it is only sufficient to monitor CO2 content in treated gas. Notwithstanding, in order to monitor parameters of aqueous amine absorption and regeneration processes in the LNG Compressor it is necessary to perform quantitative assays of basic components of unreduced amines – MDEA, piperazine – and identify their salts (carbamates and bicarbonates)
