Afrox commissions Bruker FTIR instrument


This Bruker FTIR was designed specifically to analyse low level atmospheric contaminants, including; CO, COS, H2S, NOx, SOx, and is on offer from Afrox.

It will identify and quantify chemical species found in the atmosphere around us with Opus 7.0 Software and compare the spectra against an NIST library of spectra.

This makes the analytical technique extremely powerful as an investigative tool in the laboratory, and it improves the analytical tolerance of the mixtures that Afrox can analyse and supply. It complements the ‘low ppm reactive component calibration mixtures’ Afrox has been offering in stabilised cylinders, resulting in high accuracy and extended shelf life.

The instrument is equipped with an eight metre glass gas cell with gold coated mirrors to ensure that the reactive components in the sample do not react with the cell itself. The MCT detector is cooled to -196°C, a temperature where the infrared detector is at its most sensitive.
