Simultaneous thermal analysis and mass spectrometry

Measures the evolved gases associated with weight changes and endothermic or exothermic reaction

Thermo Mass Photo is a simultaneous instrument composed of STA coupled with mass spectrometry (MS) using a skimmer-type interface. 

It is equipped with 2 different modes, namely electron ionization (EI) and soft ionization by photoionization (PI), which are available with just one-click on the software, suitable for qualitative analysis of evolved gases.

  • Skimmer-type interface

Since it adopts the skimmer type interface which is composed of a double orifice structure based on the jet separator principle, we have achieved a more compact design than the conventional capillary method. 

  • Photo Ionization (PI)

The soft ionization method using VUV (vacuum ultraviolet) lamp enables ionization of molecular ions suppressing fragmentation. Through this, we can confirm the molecular ions (parent ions) in a fragment-free spectrum. 

Since the conventional electron ionization is installed, by comparing the EI and PI results, we can obtain a more detailed evolved gas analysis result.
