Enormous quantities of greenhouse gases (GHG) exist within Arctic ice and frozen soils, so with the threat of global warming, a clear understanding of the relationship between GHG in the atmosphere and in the ice/soil is vital because melting of permafrost could cause a dangerous climate tipping point. There can be few more challenging environments for monitoring gases, but PhD researcher Martin Brummell and professors Steven Siciliano and Rich Farrell from the University of Saskatchewan have successfully employed a Gasmet DX4015 FTIR analyser to do so in the High Arctic of Canada.
Gasmet CEMS is now EN 15267-3 certified for measurement of CO, NO, NO2, N2O, SO2, HCl, HF, NH3, CO2, H2O and O2 in extended ranges (0 - 40% water vapour)
As regulatory pressure to monitor mercury emissions increases, Gasmet has developed a new type of continuous monitoring system that offers process operators the chance to demonstrate compliance whilst finding new ways to improve their processes. Employing cold vapour atomic fluorescence (CVAF), the fully automatic Gasmet Continuous Mercury Monitor (CMM) has been designed to be simple to operate with a low maintenance requirement. However, the major advantages of the CMM are the very low detection limits that it offers in combination with the highest levels of reliability
