Generation of mercury calibration gas

MC 3000

The MC-3000 generates a continuous stream of a mercury vapor loaded gas in order to check or calibrate mercury analyzers

An exactly adjustable carrier gas stream (normally air or nitrogen) is loaded with mercury in a first step.

In a second step the gas is supersaturated by cooling. Subsequently the excess mercury is condensed in a special cell to get exact saturation. The gas is then diluted, the dilution ratio is continuously adjustable in order to obtain concentrations within a specific range.

  • Generates elemental mercury vapor
  • Continuous operation
  • Approx. 10 to 500 µg/m3 Hg°
  • Compact sized and portable
  • No permeation principle – no need to calibrate the calibrator
  • Microprocessor controlled
Suitable for all applications where a gas stream with a preset and constant mercury concentration is needed
