What needs to be taken into account before FTIR device procurement

Just like for any gas analyzer technology, many aspects need to be taken into account before buying an FTIR gas analyzer.

1. Composition of sample gas

Before purchasing an analyzer, there is a need to carefully look into all measured components, possible cross-interfering components and measuring surfaces both in normal and fault situations. Other important aspects that might affect the measurement are dust levels, gas temperature, gas pressure, and dew points.

Based on this information we can provide the required gas calibrations for the system.

2. Gas sampling point

What also needs to be considered is the selection of a suitable sampling point, probe, ability to replace dust filters, sufficient space for working and service.

3. Placement of monitoring system

To secure an ideal environment for a monitoring system, the following factors need to be examined: adequate air-conditioning, dust levels, humidity, corrosive circumstances, surrounding gases, the danger of explosion, vibration, and serviceability.

We support and recommend accounting for all these factors when purchasing and installing an emission monitoring system. This way we can secure a safe and suitable set up of devices, which will also help minimize possible defects in sampling and elongate the maintenance intervals and life cycles of analyzers.

 

Why choose Gasmet?

The impact of technological developments will affect the future of emissions monitoring. This means that in the future we need to be able to monitor a wide range of components from complicated gas matrices. It is also likely that decisions to monitor new gases or gases at a lower level will be made in the EU- in the near future.

FTIR is currently the only existing technology that is capable of monitoring gases without cross-interferences. As stated, our FTIR gas analyzers are industry leading, reliable, and offer good monetary value. In addition to the high quality of the analyzers, there is always local technical service and support available. It is of utmost importance to us that we guarantee the seamless operation of your plant that is building a cleaner and safer future.

 

Gasmet’s FTIR gas analyzers

We offer both portable FTIR gas analyzers and stationary FTIR emissions monitoring systems:

DX4000 for periodic measurements

As monitoring does not always need to be continuous, and the environmental regulations can be met by performing periodic measurements, a portable device, such as  DX4000 is an ideal option for a measuring service provider.

DX4000 can accurately monitor up to 50 gases simultaneously in hot and humid sample gases. It is also the world’s smallest FTIR emissions monitoring system, which enables easy use and setup. This device is ideal for stack testing and short-term monitoring.

CEMS II e for continuous emissions monitoring

CEMS II e  is typically used to simultaneously measure up to 16 gases, including Organic Carbon (TOC). Thanks to the flexible and easy-to-use Calcmet software, the list of measured gases can also be extended for more gases and ranges without any hardware changes.

After installation, CEMS II e works fully independently. All alerts and results are directed to the plant control room, so no additional check-ups over by the device are needed.

Continuous Emissions Monitoring System CEMS II e offers TÜV and MCERTS certified solutions (QAL1) for a wide range of demanding emission monitoring applications. One of the main benefits of CEMS II e is its robustness, which gives a long-lasting life cycle for the system.
