The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has two stack testing methods for FTIR gas analyzers. Method 320 is an FTIR method for measuring wide range of organic and inorganic pollutants. Method 321 is a specific version for measuring hydrogen chloride HCl at cement kilns producing Portland cement. These methods define a quality assurance and control processes for verifying the accuracy of the results. The requirements for analytical equipment and software are defined on 40 CFR Part 60 Appendix B Performance Specification 15. Gasmet™ Gas Analyzers and Calcmet™ software have been designed to take the requirements of the performance specification into account.

Hydrogen chloride (HCl) is a colorless, sometimes slightly yellow, gas. It is an undesired environmental component that may be damaging to workers and the surroundings. Exposure limits have thus been established by industries to make sure that the workers operate in a safe environment. HCl monitoring is especially required for incinerators, coal-fired power plants, aluminum recycling and cement plants. Unisearch offers a reliable and easy-to-use HCl analyzer – the TDLAS-based LasIR system. Studies have shown that TDLAS equipment provides data that is more accurate than conventional gas monitoring equipment. When calibrated for HCl monitoring, TDLAS is able to detect this gas among other gases present in the area and provide continuous updates with regards to the changes in its concentration.
