Acquisition to combine French expertise for moisture analysis in gas

Sep 15 2020

M. Pierre Barere, owner of the French company Opta-Periph and the Amiet family, owner of the French firm Chromatotec Group are pleased to announce that Chromatotec has acquired the range of moisture analysis instrumentation from Opta-Periph. Chromatotec’s new addition will expand their expertise in gas analysis and moisture measurement. Opta-Periph will continue to produce and sell sampling systems for LNG/LPG.

The two companies will be present at the Analyse Industrielle exhibition taking place in Paris on September, 16th and 17th, on Chromatotec Group’s stand (#C20).

After several years of collaboration, Opta-Periph and Chromatotec Group have agreed to combine their expertise in gas analysis by integrating Opta-Periph’s moisture in gas analysis activity into Chromatotec portfolio.

With this transfer of technology, Chromatotec Group will then be able to propose complete solutions for moisture measurement in chlorine (CL2), pure gas, including pure gases with more than 30% of oxygen (O2) or hydrogen (H2) as well as in pharmacopoeia medical gases and air.

The moisture analysers can be included in different types of instruments with sampling like sensors for OEM or engineering companies, online or portable detectors for moisture at low levels (in ppm or dew point),  calibration case for moisture sensor, moist gas generation case or ATEX solution.

Chromatotec will integrate those sensors in its autoGC 866 analysers to offer complete integrated systems for process management, with moisture measurement, allowing analysis of gases both by GC or by specific sensors. It could be coupled to Vistachrom monitoring software, with alarms management.

This acquisition by Chromatotec is a first step in the collaboration of the two companies, which will continue to work on common actions in the future.
