The Agilent CrossLab Cartridge System (CS) bundle combines two critical GC flow path monitoring devices into one. The Electronic GC Leak Detector will detect leaks or verify leak-free tubing and fittings, conserving various gas types throughout the lab or site, including hydrogen, nitrogen, helium, and others. In comparison, the ADM Flow Meter measures gas streams and provides flow rates. The combined cartridge system design is easy to maintain by simply replacing the cartridge once per year. The cartridge design helps reduce shipping costs for compliance and reduces electronic waste by having a single handheld system.
The CrossLab CS bundle offers:
The Penang, Malaysia facility that manufactures the Agilent CrossLab CS bundle has implemented measures to reduce energy consumption, water consumption, and waste generation within the last five years. These initiatives include movement-sensitive lights and water faucets, and the removal of single-use plastics.
The Penang, Malaysia, facility that manufactures the Agilent CrossLab CS bundle has a rooftop solar array.
The Penang, Malaysia facility that manufactures the Agilent CrossLab CS Bundle has robust EHS policies for chemical management. Additionally, the Agilent Crosslab CS Bundle is EU ROHS 2015/863/EU compliant and does not contain any chemicals of concern.
The Agilent Crosslab CS Bundle is manufactured in Penang, Malaysia and distributed to the US via Memphis Tennessee and distributed to the EU and UK via Ketsch Germany.
The Agilent CrossLab CS bundle was designed as an alternative to using two separate products: a leak detector and a flow meter. By redesigning the separate leak detector and flow meter into cartridges that worked with one mainframe unit (e.g., the CrossLab CS bundle), Agilent achieved dematerialization with the new product offering by almost 40% by weight.
The Agilent CrossLab CS bundle packaging system consists of cardboard that contains 70% recycled fiber and polyethylene bags. This results in a packaging system containing 68% sustainable content by weight.
The Agilent CrossLab CS bundle is assumed to be in active use for 0.5 hours per day and idle for the remaining 23.5 hours. This use case results in an energy consumption of 0.003 kWh per day for the Electronic Leak Detector and 0.003 kWh per day for the ADM Flow Meter.
The Agilent CrossLab CS bundle does not consume water during its use phase.
The Agilent CrossLab CS bundle has an ADM flow meter and electronic leak detector. Based on reliability testing, the Agilent CrossLab CS bundle has an expected lifetime of almost 13 years under average use conditions.
The Agilent CrossLab CS bundle packaging system consists of cardboard and polyethylene bags. The cardboard box is readily recyclable, while the polyethylene bags can be recycled, landfilled, or incinerated depending on the available infrastructure in the US, EU, and UK markets. Additionally, Agilent provides consumers with proper packaging disposal recommendations.
The Agilent CrossLab CS bundle products are eligible for manufacturer take-back programs or extended producer responsibility programs across all three markets (US, EU, and UK).
The Agilent CrossLab CS bundle products implement a unique cartridge design that reduces the need for customers to ship the product back to the Malaysia facility for recalibration.
