Is anyone familiar with any cases of LC/MS or FIA/MS implemented in a Ex environment? (that is boxed up in an ATEX'ed or equivalent enclosure)
Ex is for explosives but in reality any pharma manufacturing is likely to be Ex because of solvents or powders.
I don't think any of the big boys sells ATEX ready LC/MS kits - or maybe I'm wrong?
Would like to know of any implementation cases - who and how provided the ATEX enclosures and integration.

There are loads of gas phase MSs in operation in the industry, many in Ex casing, but can't see any liquid MSs at all....
Talking about simple SQ.

Many thanks
