Rapid, accurate and linear results

The Baseline PetroAlert® Model 9100 incorporates the sensitivity, stability, linearityand selectivity of a flame ionization detector (FID), making it the ideal choice for the analysis of aliphatic hydrocarbons.

Designed specifically for the oil and gas industry’s surface logging process. Fast C1 to C5 analysis is completed in 30 seconds, preserving the C1-C2 separation at 200:1 concentration ratios. A heavy hydrocarbon analysis is also available for applicationsthat require C6+ analysis.

The PetroAlert integrates state of the art technology with the reliability and flexibility of gas chromatography. Utilizing AMETEK MOCON - Baseline’s extensive experience, this instrument has been designed with key features to meet your technological requirements as well as offer the best return on investment to date. Incorporating powerful GC software makes the need for an additional computer a thing of the past.

Data collection features include chromatograms and user-definable text formats forexporting data to reports. Data storage options are either continuous or based on events, such as alarms.

The Series 9100 is a microprocessor-based instrument controlled by its internal system software. The software receives your instructions directly, using the touch screen on the front panel. The PetroAlert’s automatic calibration feature is ideal for unattended operation. The compact size and design makes this unit suitable for field applications, allowing for either rack mount configuration or bench top use.
