Using CoatingsMost analytical pathways are stainless steelGreat structurallyGood corrosion resistancePoor chemical properties for analytical chemistsCoatings used to improve material properties.Industries are demanding harsher services for silicon coatings (like SilcoNert 2000 (Sulfinert).Carboxysilane coatings (Dursan) more robust.3Factors Contributing to Poor Sampling ReliabilityDurability/Wear CorrosionMoistureDesignChemical & Material Compatibility/InertnessInstrument CompatibilityInstallation

4Selecting CoatingsFluoropolymersVery inertVery corrosion resistantBroad pH applicabilityPoor adhesionPoor wear resistanceGood to 260C

At t=10min the gas stream was switched in a waythat it passed additionally the different 1.8m long lines. The PFA line seems to be best for Ammonia, whilethe steel line completely adsorbs the 100ppbv of Ammonia in the sample gas for hours. All lines were 1.8 m,not heated (30C), sample gas flow was 500 sccm (std. ml/min) of 100 ppb of ammonia in N2. Courtesy of IONIMED Analytik
