Pra.Ma will exhibit with SPECS at the Magnet2017 conference in Assisi, from the 13th until the 15th of September. Come and visit us at our stand.




From the 27th until the 31st of August, Pra.Ma will be exhibiting with Hiden Analytical at EuropaCat 2017. It is the largest conference on Catalysis in Europe and it is a biannual event.

Come and visit us at our stand.





The Hiden ExQ gas analysis system features direct real time multi-species analysis and quantification of gas and vapour related processes. Systems are highly adaptable with configurations suited to sampling directly from pressure regimes in the range 100 mbar through to 30 bar, with a wide dynamic range extending from 100ppb through to 100%. The soft-ionisation mode minimises molecular fragmentation for simplification of spectral data, with individual mass channels each programmable to preferentially optimise the intensity of the specific species of interest, ammonia in water vapour for instance.

The bench-top mass spectrometer systems are coupled to the user process by a robust, flexible, quartz-lined heated capillary with sample consumption rates as low as 1 mL/min and response times down to 150 milliseconds. Process interface options are suited to diverse application areas including top-gas analysis, multi-stream monitoring of gas feed and process exhaust lines (up to 80 individual gas streams), process and thermal reaction studies, respiratory analysis.

System operation, calibration, data acquisition and display are fully automated, with full manual control selectable when required. Integral I/O’s permit import of external data, temperature for example, for integration with the mass spectral display and export of process data for external process control functions.

Automatic Surface Analysis System

AutoSIMS represents the sum of a combination of instrument developments undertaken for a range of customers. The result is an easy to use general purpose laboratory tool that can
undertake routine surface analysis measurements for product monitoring, failure analysis and verification tasks. Based around the geometry of the Compact SIMS, the AutoSIMS brings a
very high level of automation to surface analysis with a typical user training period of under a day required to perform both surface, imaging and 3D depth profiles.

Hiden HPR-20 and QGA series quadrupole mass spectrometers are configurable for diverse real-time gas analysis applications by selection of the appropriate application-specific process interface. The latest interface - the all-new dual-stream capillary sampling interface - is developed for process monitoring under flowing conditions to enable fast sample switching between the feed and exhaust gas streams.


We are glad to announce that we are the new agent of Kratos Analytical for all the products for surface analysis.

For the last 46 years Kratos Analytical has provided state-of-the-art spectrometers for surface analysis and we are committed to continuing with development of leading technologies. As we approach our fifth decade Kratos Analytical is still dedicated to providing service, quality and customer satisfaction.

Mass spectrometry in solid material

The Hiden Compact SIMS tool is designed for fast and easy characterisation of layer structures, surface contamination and impurities with sensitive detection of positive ions being assisted by the oxygen primary ion beam and provides isotopic sensitivity across the entire periodic table. The ion gun geometry is optimised to be ideal for nanometre depth resolution and near surface analysis.
A rotary carousel enables 10 samples to be simultaneously loaded for measurement into the dry-pumped vacuum chamber. The instrument has a small footprint and is exceptionally easy
to use, it boasts the same control software and ion gun system as the fully featured Hiden SIMS/SNMS Workstation family, providing depth profiles, 3D and 2D images and mass spectral data. The MAXIM-600P detector is based around the highly reliable Hiden 6mm triple quadrupole mass filter with pulse ion detection. An electron gun option is available for analysis of insulating samples.
In addition to SIMS, the Compact SIMS has an SNMS facility that is useful for quantification of high concentration elements, such as alloys.
