Gas purity analysis is essential in industrial applications for several reasons. The quality of the gas used can significantly impact the performance, efficiency, and safety of industrial processes. Inadequate gas purity can lead to decreased productivity, increased product defects, and potential safety hazards.
Gas purity analysis is particularly critical in semiconductor manufacturing, where even small amounts of impurities can have a significant impact on the quality and performance of semiconductor devices. In semiconductor manufacturing, gases are used in various processes, such as deposition, etching, and cleaning. The purity of these gases can significantly impact the performance and yield of the semiconductor devices. Below are some of the reasons why gas purity analysis is important in semiconductor applications:
Gas purity is critical in lab and research applications because even small amounts of impurities can significantly affect the outcome of experiments and analyses. For example, in analytical chemistry, impurities in gases used as carrier gases in gas chromatography (GC) can cause errors in the identification and quantification of analytes. Similarly, impurities in gases used in semiconductor manufacturing can affect the performance of the final product.
Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) are materials that have a known and well-defined composition, which can be used to calibrate analytical instruments and validate analytical methods. In the case of gases, gaseous CRMs are prepared as mixtures of different gases at known concentrations, often expressed in units of parts per million (ppm) or parts per billion (ppb).
Calibration gas mixtures are prepared by blending high-purity gases of known concentrations, often using CRMs as reference materials. They are often used in quality control and quality assurance procedures, particularly in the chemical, petrochemical, and environmental industries. These mixtures can be used to calibrate gas detectors, assess the performance of analytical instruments, and validate analytical methods.
The HF (hydrofluoric acid) alkylation unit is a critical process unit in the petroleum refining industry that produces high-octane gasoline components. However, it also presents potential risks to both the environment and personnel due to the use of hazardous materials.
One important aspect of monitoring the emissions from the HF alkylation unit is to ensure that any releases of toxic and harmful gases are detected early and prevented from causing harm to people and the environment. Emissions monitoring involves the continuous measurement of certain parameters such as flow rate, concentration, and temperature of gases emitted from the unit.
Emissions monitoring and gas purity analysis are crucial components of the HF alkylation unit’s monitoring program, helping to ensure the safe and efficient operation of the process while minimizing the risk of environmental pollution and personnel exposure to hazardous materials.
CRDS (Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy) gas analyzers are commonly used for gas purity analysis because they provide accurate and precise measurements of trace gas impurities in high-purity gas streams. This gas analyzer works based on the principle of absorption spectroscopy.

Our high purity gas analysis and systems provide stable and reliable bulk gas continuous quality control (CQC) monitoring (ppb-ppt levels) for pre- and post-purifier trace impurity measurements.
Mass spectrometers are widely used for gas purity analysis because they provide accurate and sensitive measurements of the molecular and atomic composition of gas samples. Mass spectrometry works by ionizing gas molecules and then measuring their mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) as they pass through a magnetic or electric field. The resulting mass spectrum provides a unique fingerprint of the gas sample, allowing the identification and quantification of its constituent molecules.
Our EXTREL™ VeraSpec™ APIMS takes the analytical capability of a number of our best technologies for trace gas analysis, and makes them available in one instrument, including Atmospheric Pressure Ionization MS (APIMS), high sensitivity closed source electron impact ionization (EI), and membrane inlet mass spectrometry (MIMS). The DC Corona Discharge Source is a chemical or soft ionization source that is ideal for monitoring molecules in the low ppt range.
