Comparison of TechnologiesA gas chromatograph (GC) has traditionally been the technology of choice for laboratory analysis of gas samples. GCs have been used for over 50 years in the qualification and quantification of complex mixtures of gases. The techniques and methodology required to run GCs are often a pre-requisite for any laboratory technician. Recent developments in Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) gas analysis has enabled this technology to start to replace GCs in the lab.
Phosgene COCl2 is a colorless gas. While it has been used as a Chemical Weapon Agent (CWA) in the past, currently this poisonous gas is also an important reagent in synthesis in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The plants using phosgene are typically equipped with gas sensors to detect leaks in the indoor ambient air. The critical situations arise when equipment in contact with the gas at the manufacturing facilities are serviced and maintained. As phosgene is very poisonous, even small gas pockets in...
Cerex Multi-Gas Open Path Analyzers are available in both FTIR and UVDOAS technologies to meet specific requirements for perimeter ambient air quality monitoring, leak detection, fugitive emissions monitoring and ambient air quality monitoring.
Cerex Multi-Gas Open Path Analyzers are available in both FTIR and UVDOAS technologies to meet specific requirements for perimeter ambient air quality monitoring, leak detection, fugitive emissions monitoring and ambient air quality monitoring. Cerex multi-gas analyzers offer significant advantages over single gas analyzer arrays, electro-chemical sensor arrays and time integrated air sampling hardware
CIC Photonics has made its mark with several R&D institutes where research is underway to determine the optimum thermodynamic performance of new turbine engine designs combined with new diesel fuel formulations. This sophisticated IRGAS technology has included not only a basic FTIR gas analyzer but also analyzers for H2, O2, THC, and a powder meter all integrated into a comprehensive IRGAS Solution.
