Structure of QP Mass Analyzer
A quadrupole mass analyzer consists of four rods, approximately 20 cm in length, aligned in parallel. The main rods are so precisely assembled that working on the main rods, such as reassembling and cleaning, may cause fatal accidents. To protect the main rod from contaminants, which mostly come from the ion source region, the pre-rods are attached to the main rods.
