MiTAP relies on gas chromatography (GC) technology to perform quantitative and qualitative sample analysis.
The system is designed with an internal sensor array. Sensor configurations can be customized according to the target VOCs specified by the client.
Micro-GC is Tricorntech’s patented technology for miniaturizing laboratory equipment (such as GC-MS) into portable and cost-effective systems.
Yes. The system is designed to measure the 12 different types of VOCs and TVOCs regulated by the Taiwanese government.
Each system can be customized according to client specifications. As for the model that is commercially available, 16 different VOCs can be analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively at once.
MiTAP offers a limit of detection (LoD) of less than 1 ppb, but the actual values will vary depending on the VOC. Take toluene as an example, its limit of detection can be less than 0.1 ppb.
The system’s limit of detection is less than 1 ppb, but the actual values will vary depending on the VOC.
It can vary depending on usage conditions. Using the MiTAP S500 as an example, a 2-liter N2 cylinder can last a month when taking measurements at 30-minute cycles.
There are no additional requirements aside from the purity of the N2 gas must be greater than or equal to 99.999% (5N).
The suggested temperature range is between 20 and 30˚C (range may vary based on customer requirements).
MiTAP has received the CE marking.
Yes. A small UPS (2000VA) can power the system for approximately 3 hours.
The MiTAP F8 is capable of detecting non-target VOCs through semiquantitation.
The manifold system is a fixed online monitoring station capable of collecting air samples continuously from 2 to 32 different locations within a fixed area (~100 x 100m, but for semiconductor fabs, the maximum recommended space is 50 x 50m due to height considerations). Multiple MiTAP VOC analyzers can be placed inside a manifold system to enhance monitoring efficiency.
Yes. The system can be modified to take PPM or PPB measurements according to customer requirements.
The S500 shows the total of all target VOCs, and the F8 shows the total of all target as well as non-target VOCs.
The answer will vary based on client requirements. In general, PFA pipes are used in semiconductor fabs and the pipe lengths are between 100 and 200m. For outdoor applications, we will have to assess each environment separately in order to come up with the best configuration.
