FTIR spectroscopy

The method

FTIR spectroscopy is an innovative standard method for the measurement of compounds, which have significant absorbance profile in the middle IR region. This method is more and more popular in the field of stack emission testing, thanks to the latest development of portable FTIR analysers and high performance evaluation software.

Fields of application

  • Routine periodic compliance monitoring to legal and technical requirements (boilers, reciprocating gas engines and other thermal processes, waste incinerators, cement clinker kilns, metal smelters, glass smelters, etc.)
  • Calibration and annual surveillance test of Continuous Emission Monitoring (CEM) systems (QAL-2 and AST EN 14181).
  • Monitoring of alternative fuel trials and co-incineration processes
  • Investigative an process optimisation trials
  • Monitoring of greenhouse gases.

Compounds

  • Frequently tested inorganics: H2O, CO2 CO, SO2, NO, NO2, N2O, NH3,
  • Abrasive compounds: HCl, HF, HCN, O3,
  • Organics: Alifatic (CH4, C2H6, ...), Aromatic (Toluol, Xilenes, Benzene, ...), organic acids (formic acid, acetic acid.), ketones, alcohols, aldehydes (ie.formaldehyde), sulphur compounds (ie. mercaptans), nitrogen compounds, freons, halogenated compounds, chemical warfare agents, anestesia gases.
