FT-(N)IR Spectroscopy for Chemical and Gas Analysis in Process Monitoring and Quality Control
FT-(N)IR Spectroscopy for Chemical and Gas Analysis in Process Monitoring and Quality Control

 

Watch on demand

Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and near-infrared (FT-NIR) spectroscopy offers significant advantages comparing to conventional techniques, such as wet chemical methods. FT-(N)IR is a non-destructive technique and requires almost no sample preparation. In addition, it provides real-time results. A single measurement within a minute can provide multiple parameters including moisture, chemical concentration, and physical parameters, such as particle size, density, etc. This makes it a perfect process analytical technology (PAT) for online or inline process monitoring and quality control. Another beauty of the technique is that it’s not limited by the types of samples. It works for liquids, slurries, pastes, solids, and even gases. The FTIR gas analyzer can analyze up to 30 different gases in a single measurement and the detection limit can be in ppb level.
