Dual Inlet technology is the most precise, accurate and sensitive technique for carbonate and water analysis. Because of this, the Dual Inlet has a unique role in the paleoclimate applications where instrumental precision contributes directly to the precision of paleoclimate models. Whilst the world's climate continues to behave erratically, we must know what has happened in Earth's history before we can attempt to predict what will happen in the future. To elucidate this complicated story, the Dual Inlet is a valuable tool for paleoclimatologists to build a detailed picture of the past to better inform policy makers who might just be able to influence the future of our planet.
The Dual Inlet uses a zero dead volume, four valve switching system to compare pure sample and reference gases multiple times. This enhanced statistical analysis of a sample gas significantly improves the analytical standard error, resulting in greater confidence in the result. The Dual Inlet uses fully automated routines to analyse any pure gas which can be introduced in to the high compression ratio stainless steel bellows.
