Gasmet – Measure on the move


Gasmet Technologies Oy of Finland has launched a portable FTIR gas analyser that enables the field measurement of “literally thousands” of gases.
The DX4040 is the second generation of the FTIR analyser that brought laboratory grade gas analysis into the field and allowed multiparameter FTIR gas analysis to monitor applications involving industrial safety, fumigants/pesticides, soil gas, contaminated land and toxic industrial chemicals.
The new instrument is said to be easier to use and more flexible than its predecessor and Gasmet CEO Mikko Suuntala added: “The most important development lies in the ability of the device to identify unknown gases in the field – at the touch of one button – when using a new version of the unit’s Calcmet software on a Windows tablet PC.”
The unknown gas identification capability is retrospectively applicable to existing DX4030 analysers when using the new software and a tablet personal computer.
