Prima PRO Process Mass Spectrometer

Precise, efficient and versatile gas analyser

The Thermo Scientific™ Prima PRO Process Mass Spectrometer is a state-of-the-art gas analyser engineered to optimise gas analysis in a wide range of industries, including petrochemical, iron and steel, and biotechnology. Equipped with advanced magnetic sector technology, the Prima PRO ensures exceptional precision, accuracy, and stability in gas analysis.

The Prima PRO sets new standards for efficiency with its unique RMS inlet system. No longer do you need multiple gas chromatographs for simultaneous analysis of multiple gas samples. The Prima PRO enables you to analyse up to 64 gas samples simultaneously, saving you time, resources, and maintenance efforts.

Designed with a fault-tolerant and rugged construction, the Prima PRO guarantees exceptional reliability and availability, surpassing 99.7%. Featuring automated calibration intervals of up to 90 days, it reduces the frequency of manual calibrations, saving you valuable time and effort. Its intuitive interface and auto-tune capabilities facilitate ongoing operation, enhancing productivity and efficiency in your gas analysis processes.

Whether you’re involved in natural gas processing, olefin production, iron processing, or other critical industrial processes, the Prima PRO is tailored to meet your specific needs. It empowers you to monitor and analyse gases with precision, ensuring optimal process performance and high product yield across a range of applications.
