Andrews Glass Company understands the challenges that laser manufacturers encounter regarding the increasing power output and rectifying arcing problems related to glass tube designed systems.

Midi Systems

Lab-Crest Midi-Distillation Systems allow you to replace costly macro distillation techniques. Designed to make distillation and other difficult analyses easy, these compact, fully integrated units enable you to quickly and efficiently prepare multiple samples for analysis. The distillation system for cyanide and sulfide reduces cost 30% and conforms to U.S. EPA Methods 3.35.2 CLP-M and 335.4. The midi-distillation system for ammonias and phenols reduces distillation time up to 50%. The system allows users to safely and confidently downscale EPA Method 350.1 for ammonias and Method 420.4 for phenols.

Photo-ionization Detection (PID)

Combining extensive glass fabrication capabilities with proprietary processes, we are pioneers in the development of lamps for photoionization detection (PID). The PID lamp was originally developed for use by NASA in calibrating space experiment. Glow discharge lamps were available in the VUV but they were unstable and highly unreliable. The company has gained international recognition for developing the first stable, long-lived glow discharge lamp functioning in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV). This lamp proved to be a more sensitive alternative to flame ionization, as the energy source for ionizing the effluent from a gas chromatograph (GC).

Pressure Reaction Vessels

Visual observation of a pressurized system is one of the major advantages of Lab-Crest® glass pressure reaction vessels (also known as Fischer-Porter bottles).

Filtration Ware

Over two decades our filtration ware has been used in labratories around the world. These filter holders have become the standard for use in analysis of bacterial or viral contamination or suspended solids in water.
