Rapid static headspace sampler for automated odour analysis
UNSPECIFIED (1998) Rapid static headspace sampler for automated odour analysis. TRANSACTIONS OF THE INSTITUTE OF MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL, 20 (2). pp. 67-73. ISSN 0142-3312Full text not available from this repository.
This paper describes the design and performance of an automated rapid static headspace sampler and a new axisymmetric temperature-controlled sensor chamber. The system is controlled via a virtual instrument embedded within a microcomputer and is capable of taking several hundred measurements per day. The headspace sampler has a repeatability of better than 1% with a dead-volume of only 3.1 mi and lag time of about 470 ms. The new sensor chamber operated at a constant temperature to better than +/- 0.1 degrees C and gave a marked improvement in both sensor stability and response time. This new design of analytical instrument should provide for the superior analysis of odorant materials.
