Protea is a UK-based instrument manufacture and systems builder specialising in spectroscopic gas analysis, using FTIR, TDLAS and QMS technologies amongst others. Our customer-focused analysis systems for process, emission and environmental monitoring can provide a solution for direct installation into a plant (such as CEM systems) or we can provide the analytical technology on an OEM basis to preferred system integrators for your own installations and packaged systems. We can provide core analysers for mobile or laboratory testing, or complete integrated systems with complex sampling systems for plant process and emissions.

Looking for distributors

We are looking for official distributors for local support in markets such as emissions, process, laboratory, research, ambient air and workplace gas analysis. We are looking for OEM system integrators with knowledge and access to local market needs in emissions, automotive and other specialists gas analysis applications.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

Protea - Model AtmosFIR - Multi-component FTIR Gas Analyser

atmosFIR is the successor to Protea's previous emissions monitoring FTIR systems, keeping all the features that users found valuable in achieving their measurement results, but offering the benefits of the new atmosFIR platform with increased portability, lower ownership costs and increased measurement performance. atmosFIR can be considered a simple multi-gas analyser for combustion gas measurements; indeed for some users that is all it will be and ...

Protea - Model Protir 204M - Transportable CEM FTIR Gas Analyser

The 204M is a transportable CEM based on FTIR technology. It is MCERTS approved and used by stack testing organisations and laboratories for compliance and BS EN 14181 emissions monitoring. Using the 204M for measurements of waste incineration and combustion plant process is as simple using an FTIR can be. With pre-loaded calibration methods for 28 gas species, automatic nitrogen purging, in-built pressure and temperature alarms, analogue and digital ...

FEATURED APPLICATIONS

Measurement solution for to multi-stream by-pass system

A large pharmaceutical plant runs a Thermal Oxidiser on plant to incinerate their solvent-containing gas streams before emission. When the oxidiser is offline, then the plant must monitor the release of solvent to the atmosphere. A ProtIR 204C fixed monitoring system was installed that continually measures 24 plant solvents, including Acetone, Cyclohexane, DCM, DMF, IPA, MIBK, Toluene and THF. Given the high levels that are possible, the system has an active dilution system, reducing the concentration of the...

Measurement solution for on-line carbon bed system

Commonly, activated carbon beds are used as abatement systems on plant, with emissions being reduced by adsorption onto the bed. The efficiency of any abatement system is critical to its operation, not just in ensuring emissions are reduced as much as possible, but an efficient bed has cost savings for the operator.

FEATURED SOFTWARE

Protea - Version PAS Pro - Fixed Process Analyser Control Software

When it comes to running continuous analysis system on process, a dedicated 24/7 running software environment is required. For this, Protea has developed PAS-Pro. PAS-Pro is built upon the same trusted components that make up the standard PAS application for the laboratory. However, the interface is stripped down to a more engineer-friendly interface. There is no need to change complex FTIR settings in the field. There is no need for the site ...

Protea - Data Reporting Packages Software

Protea understands that the results from your analyser are often just the start of what needs to be reported in your process application. Data formatting and manipulation can vary from industry to industry, application to application. This can mean sorting historical data or formatting live data as it is collected, ready for passing to another system in your process. Whatever your requirement, Protea can provide bespoke reporting packages for your ...

FEATURED TRAINING

FTIR Data Analysis Training

The beauty of FTIR spectroscopy for industrial gas analysis is the collection of spectral data that can be reviewed and re-analysed offline to provide extra information on gas species within the process. However the tools and techniques to do this are not always fully explained or demonstrated to newcomers to this technology. Protea can provide 2 day training courses specifically for the analysis of FTIR data. Starting with a review of data quality and ...

FTIR Operation Training

Either to be provided with one of our own FTIR gas analyser systems, or provided to users of other FTIR equipment, Protea’s FTIR training course provides an in-depth and thorough training course for both the new comer to FTIR and also the experienced user. From an overview of spectral theory, to a breakdown of the components within an FTIR analysis system, our training courses enable the laboratory user or plant engineer to get the most ...
