MicroSAM , the newest on-line Process Gas Chromatograph from Siemens, brings a new dimension to the industry – small! Using modern silicon micro-machining techniques achieves miniature size while simultaneously increasing power and versatility.

The analysis module integrated in an explosion-proof housing no bigger than a  small platter contains everything required to separate and detect the measured components.

Every MicroSAM measures a maximum of three sample streams plus one calibration stream. It is possible to install multiple MicroSAM analyzers at different measuring points in a plant, integrated in a complete analyzer network. This means that MicroSAM analyzers together with MAXUM Edition II can be easily connected to a process control system and permit several process streams to be analyzed simultaneously. Such systems are easy to implement and achieve more information per time.»


  • option of mounting in the field, in other words user friendly and cost-effective installation, minimal infrastructure requirements, faster analysis

  • compact and modular construction means less space taken up in the analysis block, simple and cost-saving maintenance and repair

  • precise measurement results thanks to multidetection, in other words, the thermal conductivity detectors monitor the entire separation path from the injection through to all columns or purge outlets

  • simple remote control with Windows-based software and Ethernet communication
