13 0.5 micron frit to remove particles
BIP® Built in Purifier Purifier sealed inside cylinder in a high-pressure, inert atmosphere – transparent to user Removes Oxygen Water Hydrocarbons Carbon Monoxide Carbon Dioxide Halocarbons Each purifier is tested Performance guaranteed for lifetime of the cylinder 0.5 micron frit to remove particles Nice for lasers! Air Products knows adsorbent technology and gases. Knowing both parts we can control the total gas-purifier system. No purifier manufacturer knows the gases like we do. We designed the purifier knowing the purity of the gas. We manufacture and test each purifier. We guarantee the performance of each purifier for the entire lifetime of the cylinder. The features of the purifier include The 0.5 micron frit The purifier is sealed inside the cylinder in a high pressure, inert atmosphere (not air). No fittings. It removes these impurities from the gas. It is invisible to the user. We knew that we did not want to take that purifier out of the cylinder until the retest time. APCI controls the whole gas-purifier system. Because the purifier is sealed inside the cylinder, there are no fittings that can leak and nobody can mess with it. It is not just transparent to the user but invisible. Built-in purifier

14 BIP® Gas Specifications
O2 < 10 ppb H20 < 20 ppb THC < 100 ppb Batch Certificate of Conformance O2 < 10 ppb H20 < 20 ppb THC < 100 ppb N2 < 3 ppm O2 < 10 ppb H20 < 20 ppb THC < 100 ppb N2 < 5 ppm Carrier Gas ECD Make-up Gas FID Make-up Gas Inerting ICP-MS (non dewar) Atomic Absorption High-grade welding Carrier Gas Lasers Note - the specifications are for the product coming out of the cylinder, not for the product in the cylinder.
