SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Picarro has appointed KNJ
Engineering as a distributor of their instruments in South Korea. KNJ
Engineering will sell and support Picarro gas and isotope analyzers for
environmental applications, including greenhouse gas (CO2, CH4 and H2O)
KNJ Engineering, Inc. was founded in 1992 and has grown to become a
leading supplier of source gas sampling systems, continuous emission
monitoring instruments, and ambient/indoor air quality sampling and
monitoring systems in South Korea.
Chungkoo Kim, president of KNJ Engineering notes that, "We supply many
air quality monitoring systems to the Korean government and to local
provinces. Picarro's gas and isotope analyzers are the optimum solution for
those who wish to evolve from our traditional air quality monitoring
systems to include greenhouse gas monitoring too. For example, Picarro's
CO2/CH4/H2O analyzer and isotopic CO2 analyzer are natural additions to our
current portfolio of measurement solutions." Kim adds, "Picarro's
instruments will also be easier for us to support than prior technology.
Currently, our engineers visit various monitoring stations located around
the country every week for calibration, but the drift-free nature of the
Picarro systems will reduce this service load significantly."
"Our instruments based on WS-CRDS (Wavelength-Scanned Cavity Ring Down
Spectroscopy) technology offer an unmatched combination of performance and
convenience for greenhouse gas monitoring applications," states Michael
Woelk, Picarro CEO. "But, in order for them to succeed in a market, they
must also be backed with superior support. KNJ Engineering is a market
leader in South Korea that has consistently demonstrated the ability to
deliver this level of support, and we're particularly excited about
partnering with them."
Picarro, Inc. is a privately held company dedicated to developing
instrumentation for the highest sensitivity, precision and accuracy
measurements of specific molecules of interest in environmental analyses,
process monitoring, and emissions control. The company is a leader in
wavelength scanned cavity ring down spectroscopy (WS-CRDS) technology with
eight exclusive licenses from Stanford University patents and nine of its
own on WS-CRDS extensions. Visit us at http://www.picarro.com.
