Quadrupole mass spectrometers are the classic measuring instrument for evaluating residual gas composition in a vacuum system.

The ion currents supplied by the mass spectrometer for the mass-to-charge ratio of the gas components provide meaningful information about a vacuum system in the multiple phases of operation, whether for determining the tightness and the absence of contamination after setup or for its characterization when operating a vacuum process.
The pressure range which can be achieved in the vacuum system based on the design of the vacuum chamber and pumping system determines the selection of the mass spectrometer with respect to the detector. A Faraday detector is frequently sufficient in high vacuum, while a secondary electron multiplier is necessary in ultra-high vacuum to detect the very low gas densities.

Extorr, Inc. manufactures electronic instruments based on quadrupole mass spectrometer technology. The Company was founded with vacuum measurement products at the center of its business. Its flagship product, the XT residual gas analyzer product line, has a unique competitive position since it can measure both total pressure as well as the partial pressures of gases left in a vacuum system. This product not only takes the place of residual gas analyzers (RGAs), but also a diverse range of instruments required for vacuum measurements at orders of magnitude higher operating range than the traditional RGA.
products: Residual Gas Analyzers

Residual Gas Analyzers: Pirani, Ion Gauge, Quadrupole - All Included
The Extorr XT residual gas analyzer is a quadrupole mass spectrometer complete with a built-in Pirani gauge and Ion gauge. It is an essential measuring device which may be used in any vacuum system. The Extorr XT residual gas analyzer (RGA) models come in 100, 200 and 300 amu packages. All RGA models attach to a single 2 3/4 inch flange. Each package has automatic start-up and shut down and will constantly monitor from atmospheric pressure to ultra high vacuum. The built-in Pirani gauge and ion gauge constantly monitor total pressure and regulate and protect the RGA. These functions are seamlessly integrated into the Extorr software package.

Matco Associates, Inc. is a leading independent consulting, engineering, and testing firm specializing in the fields of failure analysis, inspection, corrosion, metallurgical engineering, cathodic protection systems, materials selection, and coatings.
products: RGA systems

Matco Associates' RGA system is a computer software controlled quadrupole mass spectrometer, capable to 200 atomic mass units, with automatic start-up and shut-down, and with a built-in Pirani gauge and ion gauge. The Pirani gauge and ion gauge constantly monitor from atmospheric pressure to ultra high vacuum and regulate and protect the RGA. It is interfaced to a vacuum system consisting of a mechanical pump for roughing and a diffusion pump for high vacuum. The operating range of the vacuum system is 10-5 to 10-6 torr. The gas content can be analyzed from a metered input port. Alternatively, a specially designed internal mechanical attachment allows for the breaking or cutting of the material to be analyzed for out-gassing products in-vacuuo.
