Exploration of Underwater Methane Sources with the Transpector® CPM from INFICON

charset=InvalidCharsetId

Enormous amounts of methane are trapped in the ocean floor worldwide. The Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Center for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) uses an underwater mass spectrometer (UWMS) – the Transpector® CPM from INFICON – to investigate methane sources. With its measurement accuracy and speed, the system, from a leading supplier of measurement and sensor technology, makes a significant contribution to data stability and user-friendliness.

The UWMS consists of a membrane inlet system for sampling and a sensor unit in which the water-soluble gases and light hydrocarbons are measured. The core of the sensor is a mass spectrometer. The Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Center for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), for example, relies on the Transpector® CPM from INFICON for its research. With its accuracy and speed, the INFICON system makes a significant contribution to data stability and user-friendliness.
