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 ┬ásmall 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.”
