Gas & Isotope Analysers

ABB LGR-ICOS™ gas & isotope analysers

Off-axis integrated cavity output spectroscopy instruments

Acoem Australasia (Ecotech Pty Ltd) is the official distributor for ABB LGR-ICOS (formerly known as Los Gatos Research) analysers in Australia and New Zealand for the environment and research market.

ABB LGR-ICOS™ analysers have been designed using the latest off-axis integrated cavity output spectroscopy (OA-ICOS) technology.  

This ABB-patented technique offers numerous advantages compared to other laser-based methods by delivering superior performance and reliability yet, it is much less sensitive to internal alignment of components and to variations in local temperature and pressure. As a result, OA-ICOS is ideal for use in commercial instruments for even the most demanding applications in remote and/or hazardous locations.

Benefits of ABB LGR ICOS™ analysers

All ABB LGR ICOS™ instruments offer the following distinct advantages:

  • Ultra high sensitivity

Detect contaminants at ppt/ppb-levels

  • Accuracy / highly selective

High accuracy to optimise process monitoring & control

  • Fast

Low T90 flow response time allows for process control & real-time monitoring
Quick refresh rate for ultra-precise time measurement

  • Wide linear dynamic range

Accurately quantify both trace & % levels for measurements during routine operation and excursion events

  • Ruggedness

Highest stability, minimal downtime (low maintenance)

  • Easier, faster & less expensive maintenance

Field serviceable with low cost of ownership & minimal downtime

  • Stability

Real-time signal compensation in real-time (X+Y axes) supress need for recalibration.
