    There is a constant focus on safety in the aerospace, airlines, and military industries because of the inherent risks involved in these fields. The consequences of an accident or failure can be severe, resulting in loss of life, damage to property, and negative impacts on the environment.

    In the aerospace industry, our TIGER OPTICS™ CRDS gas analyzers are typically used for monitoring gas concentrations in fuel systems, environmental control systems, and other critical process applications. 


    Validation of a climate chamber involves a series of tests that are designed to verify that the chamber is operating within established guidelines for temperature, humidity, air flow, and other environmental conditions. These tests are performed using calibrated sensors and measuring equipment and are typically conducted by qualified personnel with experience in environmental testing.

    Our chilled mirror analyzers are widely used for climate chamber validation because of their ability to accurately measure the dew point temperature of the air inside the chamber. The dew point temperature is the temperature at which the water vapor in the air condenses into liquid water, and it is a critical parameter for determining the humidity of the air.


    Government requires the ability to accurately, quickly and efficiently monitor pollutants emitted into the environment and atmosphere. Our TIGER OPTICS™ T-I Max™ AIR CO2 greenhouse gas (GHG) analyzer for carbon dioxide is designed for versatile use. It can measure ambient levels of CO2 with high precision over a wide range of temperatures with excellent reliability, and they can monitor emissions of greenhouse gases from various sources such as landfills, gas and oil exploration sites, refineries, and agricultural facilities.

    The EXTREL™ MAX300-AIR™ environmental quadrupole mass spectrometer is a versatile instrument that can be used in a wide range of industries that require precise gas analysis. It is used in environmental monitoring to measure gas emissions from industrial plants, landfills, and other sources.


    Surface water and de-icing wastewater should be continuously monitored at airports. Many regulatory bodies, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), require airports to monitor the quality of their wastewater and stormwater. TOC water analysis is one method for measuring the organic content of water and can help airports ensure that they are complying with regulations.  Wastewater and stormwater generated by airports can contain pollutants that can harm the environment. TOC water analysis can help airports identify the presence of organic pollutants, such as hydrocarbons, and take steps to prevent their release into the environment.

    Our LAR™ QuickTOCairport™ TOC COD water analyzer is a high-performance online measuring system for the determination of Total Organic Carbon (TOC) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) for required airport applications.


    NASA went to Mars in 2020. The Mars 2020 Rover Mission is specifically looking for life on the Red Planet and will hunt for microscopic fossils. NASA is using our Hydrogen Peroxide Vapor (HPV) analyzers to help ensure that everything that left Earth was sterilized so they would not contaminate Mars.  

    Our GUIDED WAVE™ ClearView Hydrogen Peroxide Vapor Analyzer System is a simple turnkey solution for the measurement of hydrogen peroxide and water (H2O2 and H2O) concentrations in vapor phase. These are both measured together because they are codependent. The analyzer operates in real-time, which takes the guesswork out of determining the H2O2 and H2O concentrations during cycle development and throughout the actual sterilization cycle. NASA will gain continuous, accurate data for documentation and validation by using our system. 


    Municipal wastewater treatment plants use Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analyzers to measure the amount of organic carbon present in wastewater. TOC is a useful parameter for assessing the effectiveness of the treatment process and ensuring compliance with regulatory limits.  Monitoring municipal wastewater treatment plants is essential to meet regulatory compliance. Regulatory agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have established rules and regulations to protect human health and the environment from harmful contaminants that can be found in wastewater.

    Our LAR™ TOC water quality analyzers measure the CO2 concentration using a detector, such as an infrared detector, and calculates the amount of organic carbon in the sample based on the amount of CO2 produced. The analyzer provides a readout of the TOC concentration in the sample, which is typically expressed in milligrams per liter (mg/L) or parts per million (ppm).


    Oxygen deficiency monitors are devices used to measure the concentration of oxygen in the air. In the aerospace industry, these monitors are primarily used to monitor the levels of oxygen in enclosed spaces, such as aircraft cabins, to ensure the safety of passengers and crew.

    Our ALPHA OMEGA INSUTRMENTS™ Series 1300 Oxygen Analyzer is a type of oxygen deficiency monitor that is commonly used in the aerospace industry. It works by continuously measuring the concentration of oxygen in the air and providing an alarm if the level falls below a certain threshold.  It uses a zirconium oxide sensor to measure the oxygen concentration. The sensor consists of a thin layer of zirconium oxide that is coated with a layer of platinum. When oxygen molecules come into contact with the sensor, they react with the platinum, causing a change in the electrical conductivity of the zirconium oxide.


    The aerospace industry uses dew point moisture meters to ensure the quality and safety of aircraft components and systems. Moisture can be a significant issue in aerospace applications, as it can cause corrosion, electrical shorts, and other problems that can compromise the functionality of critical systems.

    Our COSA XENTAUR™ dew point analyzers and transmitters use the patented Hyper-Thin-Film (HTF™) Aluminum Oxide Technology.  Our breakthrough Hyper-Thin-Film Technology is based on major advances in thin-film technology and metal oxide sciences. It provides measurements with a sensitivity several orders of magnitude larger than of those made with all other technologies. HTF™ sensors are free of drift and insensitive to temperature changes over most of their range. 


    Labs focus on the testing of aerospace systems under various environmental conditions, such as extreme temperatures, pressure, vibration, and humidity. They use specialized equipment to simulate these conditions and test the performance and reliability of aerospace systems under real-world conditions.

    Our EXTREL™ Quadrupole Mass Spectrometers are the ideal choice for both applications.  Scientists rely on our MS/MS systems and components for surface analysis of various materials that are used every day in aerospace, biomedical, nuclear, and medical/surgical applications. 

    Our TIGER OPTICS™ Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) Gas Analyzers are a perfect fit for government lab projects requiring residual gas analysis, outgassing studies, and glove boxes for gas monitoring of H2, He, D2, H2O, O2, N, CO2, Ar, and more.
