FTIR Air Monitoring System
Tue, 04/01/2008 - 8:42am
The AM Air Monitoring System can detect, identify, and measure a wide range of compounds simultaneously, within seconds of startup. Analysis is on-site through a continuous sampling path of up to 1,000 meters. Applications include industrial stack and/or fenceline monitoring and analysis or environmental research. The system can provide continuous, unattended, near real-time detection at ppb to percentage levels for hundreds of chemicals. Each system includes a sealed 0.5 cm-1 resolution interferometer with a choice of beam splitters and detectors. The analyzer is coupled to a control PC via ribbon cable or long range fiber-optic link. For extended sample paths, the FTIR can be mounted to a 10-in. telescope. A high-energy infrared source module on the opposite end of the sample path completes the system. Weighing approximately 40 lbs and measuring 8 x 14 x 8 in., it is easy to transport and can be powered by a 12 V car battery.
