3 Using Coatings Most analytical pathways are stainless steel Great 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.

10 Pull Strength Measurements Paints delaminated from the stainless steel
11 Pull Strength Measurements Dursan more “slippery” difficult to bond adhesive. Adhesive bond failed before coating. Demonstrating reduced friction characteristics.
12 Challenge of Corrosion Samples can contain corrosives that quickly attack stainlessHydrochloric acid (HCl)Sulfuric acid (H2SO4)SaltwaterPhysical loss of equipment due to corrosionMaintenanceReplacement cyclesCorrosion increases surface activity and particulatesSilicon coatings susceptible to caustics

22 Ammonia Adsorption 100PPV, 500sccm, 1.8m tubing, min Measured PTR-MS signals of ammonia (m17). 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 (30°C), sample gas flow was 500 sccm (std. ml/min) of 100 ppb of ammonia in N Courtesy of IONIMED Analytik
