The MAXUM Ed. II is used to measure the chemical composition in gases and evaporable liquids in all stages of production and in all areas of refineries, oil refining, and chemical industries. The device was particularly developed for installation in harsh processing environments, to operate either directly online at the process or nearby. The application flexibility of the MAXUM Ed. II allows for the analysis of feedstock, by-products and end products, for quality measurement, and for the determination of waste products. Its versatile features offer the best possible analytical results at low operating costs thanks to a wide selection of components such as injectors, ovens, detectors, and separation columns, as well as components for column switching. Liquid samples can be optimally dosed by the use of a liquid injection valve. Highly sensitive detectors ensure a reliable trace analysis through precise sensors. Additional benefits lie in its particular economic efficiency resulting from the single and double-oven concept plus the modular oven. In addition, networked devices can be monitored in real time by the workstation.
Adaptable to any analysis task
The MAXUM Ed. II with modular oven is an option of the MAXUM GC analytic platform and is comprised of an electrically heated oven with complete insertable chromatography modules. Removal and replacement of a module can be performed in mere minutes, dramatically reducing operating and maintenance times regarding the gas chromatograph. The module can be repaired at the user’s convenience in their maintenance shop or returned to Siemens for refurbishment.
