Analytical results are generated using USP monograph or validated equivalent methods.

Requirement Test Method Limit of Detection Specification Limit Analysis Results
Carbon Dioxide Assay (CO2) Zahm Nagel 99.00% ≥ 99.0%
Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) Detector Tube 0.5 ppm 2.5 ppm each
Ammonia (NH3) Detector Tube 0.25 ppm 25 ppm
Total Sulfur Analyzer 10 ppb 1000 ppb
Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detector Tube 0.5 ppm 10 ppm
Moisture (H2O) Analyzer 0.5 ppm 200 ppm or -33°F Dew Point

1) Positive Carbon Dioxide Identification is achieved when the Assay results demonstrate meeting the specification.
2) The limit of detection (LOD) for each test method is the threshold value for results to be reported with certainty in the accuracy of results. A test result outside the detection limit for the test method will be reported as ND.
3) ND=None Detected
4)ppm= parts per million by volume, ppb=parts per billion by volume, 1ppm=1,000 ppb
5) H2S, SO2, and other sulfur species are included in the total sulfur amount
