  • Rugged, high throughput optics provide high sensitivity for the analysis of powders
  • Patented Blocker device that removes specular reflected energy, allowing distortion-free diffuse reflection spectra
  • Integral purge allows removal of atmospheric interferences from carbon dioxide and water from spectral data
  • Easy, reproducible sample loading and protected optics

Environmental Chambers

  • Provide precise control of sample environment
  • Conditions that can be obtained include elevated temperatures or elevated or reduced pressure, non-ambient gaseous environments, and ambient environments
  • High Temperature/High Pressure Chamber or the High Temperature/Vacuum Chamber allow studies such as heterogeneous catalytic mechanisms, thermal degradation, zeolite analysis and hazardous environment


Si-Carb Sample Prep Kit

  • Expands the analyses that can be performed beyond powders and small solid samples
  • Includes silicon-carbide disks used to abrade the sample
  • An infrared spectrum can be obtained of the material adhering to the surface of the disk

Recommended for:

  • Powders
  • Gems
  • Si-Carb scrapes
