Real-time Quantification of Impurities in Food-Grade CO2 with PTR-MS
The modern food and beverage industry is not imaginable without food-grade carbon (CO2) dioxide. Its many uses include carbonation of beverages, and as packaging and cooling gas.
In this study we investigate volatile organic impurities emerging from a food-grade certified (European standard E 290) carbon dioxide cylinder using a PTR-TOF 1000 ultra.
The PTR-TOF 1000 ultra is a compact PTR-TOFMS equipped with the ION-BOOSTER funnel technology. Its high sensitivity make the PTR-TOF 1000 ultra a perfect tool for applications where complex matrices have to be rapidly analyzed. One such example application is quality assurance in the food and flavor industry.
