FieldMaster™ Resistive Glass Ion Guides
Product Announcement from PHOTONIS Technologies SAS
FieldMaster™ Resistive Glass Ion Guides and Drift Tubes have demonstrated an improvement in ion transmission when compared to conventional tubes. They can be easily removed or cleaned without degradation in performance. The single-piece, solid tube design provides containment for counter-flow gas, eliminating the need for an additional enclosure.
PHOTONIS has developed a series of specialty glass tubes which can be used by analytical instrument designers and manufactures to facilitate the movement of ion samples by providing a specific, even electric field strength. Our FieldMaster™ Ion Guides and Drift Tubes are composed of a proprietary lead silicate glass that has been doped to produce a resistive surface. These tubes can be etched or be equipped with leads to optimize current flow. The resistivity can be varied over several orders of magnitude.
FieldMaster™ Ion Guides and Drift Tubes can be ordered in standard sizes and can also be etched, or equipped with leads to optimize current flow. The resistivity can be varied over several orders of magnitude.
