We are trying to set up the Flash to be able to measure d34S for a long
time. First attempts gave good results, but since we now have to find a
permanent solution for having SO2 in our lab we are struggling. The person
who is responsible for handing and installing gasses suggests a very
expensive setup. This will make it possible to flush the whole system (from
gass-bottle to Conflo) automatically. We are now wondering if this is really
necessary and if there maybe is a standard method for using SO2 as a ref-gas.
It would be really helpful to hear the experiences of other users of SO2 gas.
Thanks in advance.
