(February 9, 2016) Alliance Technologies is proud to announce the addition of new pyrolysis capabilities with a CDS Pyroprobe 5200 unit. Pyrolysis is the thermochemical decomposition of large, complex molecules into smaller fragments for analysis and identification. The CDS Pyroprobe 5200 can operate up to 1400°C and 500 psi, and features a built-in trap for pyrolysis in a reactant atmosphere such as air. Pyrolysis products are analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) for identification or quantification. Applications include polymer/plastic analysis, off-gas analysis, combustion gas analysis, and many more. For example, the figure below shows GC-MS analysis of polyethylene pyrolysis products. For more information on our expertise in pyrolysis analysis, please send us your inquiry to discuss your testing needs.
