Gas Purity Testing

Table of Contents

In today’s competitive industrial landscape, ensuring the purity of gases used in various processes is not just a regulatory requirement but a critical factor that directly impacts product quality and safety. At Prewel Labs, we specialize in providing comprehensive gas purity testing services tailored to meet the unique needs of diverse industries, including pharmaceuticals, medical device manufacturing, food and beverages, clinical research, hospitalities, and numerous other manufacturing sectors.

Our Expertise in Gas Purity Testing

Our state-of-the-art testing laboratory is equipped to handle a wide array of gases, including nitrogen (N2), argon (Ar), oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), and many others. We adhere to stringent testing protocols to deliver precise and reliable results, ensuring that your operations comply with the highest industry standards.

Range of Services Offered

1. Assay: Determining the exact composition and concentration of gases to ensure compliance with specified purity levels.

Our assay testing involves sophisticated analytical techniques to measure the exact concentration of each component within a gas mixture. This is critical for processes that require precise gas compositions to function correctly and safely. For instance, in the pharmaceutical industry, the correct gas concentration can impact drug formulation and stability.

2. Identification Tests: Confirming the presence of specific gases through advanced analytical techniques.

Identification tests are essential to verify the presence and purity of gases. These tests help in detecting any unwanted contaminants that could affect the quality of the end product. Utilizing methods like gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, we ensure that the gases meet the required specifications.

3. Description and Solubility: Assessing the physical characteristics and solubility of gases to support various industrial applications.

Descriptive tests provide insights into the physical characteristics of gases, such as color, odor, and phase at different temperatures and pressures. Solubility tests determine how gases dissolve in various solvents, which is crucial for applications in food and beverage industries where gas solubility affects carbonation levels and product taste.

4. Impurity Analysis: Detecting and quantifying impurities such as:

Oxygen (O2): Excess oxygen can cause oxidation, affecting product quality, particularly in the food and beverage industry.

Carbon dioxide (CO2): While essential for carbonation, excessive CO2 can alter the taste and quality of beverages.

Moisture or water content: High moisture levels can lead to corrosion and product spoilage.

Sulfur dioxide (SO2): Even trace amounts can be harmful, especially in pharmaceuticals and food products.

Nitrogen dioxide (NO2): Can cause discoloration and affect product stability.

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S): Known for its foul odor and potential toxicity.

Ammonia (NH3): Can be hazardous and affect the integrity of sensitive products.

Carbon monoxide (CO): Toxic even at low concentrations.

Hydrocarbons: Presence can indicate contamination from oils and lubricants.

Oil content: Can contaminate products and affect machinery performance.

Dew point: Important for preventing condensation in gas lines.

Non-Viable Particulate Content (NVPC) & Viable Particulate Content (VPC): Measuring particulate contamination levels to ensure gas purity.

Impurity analysis is crucial across industries to maintain product integrity and safety. For instance, in medical device manufacturing, impurities in gases can lead to device failure or contamination, posing severe risks to patients.

Adhering to Industry Standards

Our testing services are conducted in compliance with internationally recognized standards, including ISO 8573, European Pharmacopoeia (EP), United States Pharmacopeia (USP), and the European Union Good Manufacturing Practices for Medicinal Products (EUGMP). We are committed to providing results that you can trust, ensuring that your products meet both regulatory and quality benchmarks.

Industries We Serve

1. Pharmaceuticals: Ensuring the purity of gases used in drug manufacturing to maintain product efficacy and patient safety.
