FTIR performance is best-in-class

Quantitech‘s Gasmet CEMS II e continuous emissions monitoring system has completed EN 15267-3 testing using FTIR technology for the analysis of low range HF, low range NO, CH4 and formaldehyde. “This means that it meets the performance specifications for a larger number of components than any other FTIR in this market,” commented Quantitech MD Ken Roberts.

FTIR is an extremely popular emissions monitoring technology, able to monitor almost any gaseous compound. In the case of the Gasmet CEMS II e, this means the provision of monitoring data for up to 50 compounds simultaneously.  The performance tests were undertaken by TÜV Rheinland. Roberts said: “The results for hydrogen fluoride were as good as or better than other FTIR manufacturers, but the data for nitrogen oxide and formaldehyde are also very significant, because no other FTIR is certified down to 150 mg/m3 NO in 40 vol-% water and no other instrument is approved for formaldehyde at all!” The technology in Gasmet’s FTIR analysers is essentially all the same and benefits from continual investment in product development.
