Finland’s Gasmet Technologies Oy has launched the DX4040 – a portable FTIR gas analyzer that enables the field measurement of thousands of gases.
As the second generation of the world’s first truly portable FTIR analyzer, the DX4040 brings the benefits of multiparameter FTIR gas analysis to monitoring applications involving industrial safety, medical gases, fumigants/pesticides, soil gas, contaminated land, first responders/hazmat, fire investigation, toxic industrial chemicals, chemical warfare agents and many others.
Up to 25 gases can be displayed simultaneously when operating the DX4040 with a handheld PDA. However, the most important development lies in the ability of the device to identify unknown gases in the field - at the touch of a button - when using a new version of the unit’s Calcmet™ software on a Windows tablet pc.
The DX4040 is able to identify both organic and inorganic compounds, whilst also storing sample spectra for post-measurement analysis using a chemical library of over 5000 compounds. There are no sensors that might need future replacement and operation is extremely easy; no sample preparation is required and calibration is simply a zero check with nitrogen or air.
Described as ideal for a number of industries and applications, a new Gas Monitoring Video from General Monitors explains the gas detection principles behind the company’s PA4000 Photoacoustic Gas Monitor and its application across a wide range of hazardous environments.
Electronic Fluorocarbons (EFC), headquartered in Massachusetts, utilizes the latest technology for the purification and microanalysis of its legacy fluorinated specialty gases and rare gases for the medical and electronics semiconductor manufacturing industries.
As we head in to 2018, we look back on a very interesting changing market for krypton (Kr), xenon (Xe) and neon (Ne) in 2017. Ne supply this year continued to increase as new plants came on-stream while the demand was growing slowly after the big decline of 2016.
