Industrial Gas Analysis by FT-IR
Why FT-IR for gas analysis?
The Thermo Scientific* Antaris* IGS analyzer was specifically developed to meet the needs of demanding gas applications. The analyzer's design and extensive support programs were developed with input from industry market leaders to offer a solution to your specific gas analysis needs. Developed as an industrial FTIR system that can be deployed in either a rack-mount manufacturing environment of a table-top quality control area, the Antaris IGS analyzer provides the industry's highest possible performance in calibration and stability, method transferability and high speed data acquisition.
The Antaris IGS features:
- Multiple components
- Wide dynamic range
- Stable calibration
- Continuous online monitoring
- Data storage and review

The Air Bag method analyzes the effluent emitted during the air bag inflation. Detection limits assume a collection time of 2 minutes with a room-temperature DTGS detector.
|Aviator’s Breathing Oxygen
The Aviator’s Breathing Oxygen (ABO) method is designed to detect impurities in ABO gas according to the US Air Force military standard 1564A. This method is used with the 10 meter gas cell. Detection limits assume a collection time of 2 minutes with a room-temperature DTGS detector
The Compressed Breathing Air (CBA) method analyzes CBA for impurities. This method is used with the 10 meter gas cell. Detection limits assume a collection time of 2 minutes with a room-temperature DTGS detector.
Gasoline: Raw Exhaust method is designed for spark-ignition engine combustion analysis where gasoline is the fuel. The raw exhaust method covers concentration ranges found in the exhaust gas without dilution. The combustion gas sample is taken either before or after the catalytic converter. This method is configured with the Thermo Scientific 2 meter gas cell and a liquid-nitrogen cooled MCT-A detector. Detection limits are based on a 3-second sample time.
FTIR is an excellent technique for analyzing gases generated by new renewable energy developments, such as such as pyrolysis of wood chips or anaerobic digestion of garbage or manure. Synfuels and biogases produce environmental emissions, methane along with other potentially harmful gases, for power generation. They also cause harmful effects on the combustion chambers or compressors.
FT-IR spectroscopy offers powerful capabilities to analyze synfuel and biogas components, enabling researchers to optimize their gas generation and collection techniques.
Gas applications which require high accuracy and stable calibrations take advantage of FTIR strengths. Used by specialty gas manufacturers, semiconductor purity testing, and ID of contaminants in O2 or breathing air.
