How it Works

Open Path FTIR Technology

Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) is the preferred technique used to obtain an infrared spectrum of absorption or emission of a solid, liquid, and gas.

The FT-5000 operates by sending a beam of infrared light through a 20 meter sealed sample cell within the instrument. The IR beam is directed by a series of optics to an ultra-sensitive cryo-cooled MCT detector where minute changes in IR absorption are sensed due to trace concentrations of individual gases. A classical least squares regression analysis compares the measured absorption spectrum to calibrated reference absorption spectra files. Beer’s law is then used to determine gas concentrations (Beer-Lambert Law).

The result of coupling our proven detection system with a 20 meter internal optical sample path and CMS real time analytic software is an industry leading FTIR multi-gas analyzer.

 

(Above) Process of open-path monitoring (depicted with a Cerex UV Sentry). Similarly, the AirSentry FTIR mounts to a precision pan and tilt head which may be used with a tripod for rapid deployment, or with a fixed mount for permanent installations. The retro-reflector array is housed in a NEMA enclosure and may be tripod or fixed mounted to a mast, pole or superstructure. Monitoring path lengths are typically configured to meet minimum detection limits required for the project. Paths to 1 km are possible. The IR beam is eye-safe and the analyzer may be located directly in the breathing zone. Gases present in the beam path are identified and quantified in near real time. Credit: STI

The most cost effective perimeter & fenceline monitoring solution

Offering real time quantification of multiple compounds, the Cerex AirSentry FTIR provides a cost effective multi-component perimeter fugitive emissions or LDAR monitoring solution.

Low maintenance and low detection limits

Monitoring as few as two gases with the AirSentry FTIR often results in lower initial and lower ongoing operational costs than utilization of competing gas detection technologies, while simultaneously delivering reliable U.S.E.P.A. TO-16 regulatory compliant air quality monitoring.

Individual species of prolific hazardous air pollutants

The AirSentry FTIR is offered fully configured to meet the requirements of your air quality monitoring application. Target gases are selected from Cerex’s library of 385 compounds.

Common Detectable Gases

Extensive Library with Options for Customization

Cerex has over 385 compounds available for detection with the AirSentry. If your compound is not one of the compounds already available within our database, the Cerex AirSentry FTIR may import gas spectra from the numerous FTIR databases on the web (NIST, EPA, PNNL, etc.)

If you have a compound that is not available in a public database, we may be able to work with you to develop a custom spectrum. Detection limits are a function of the IR detector, installed path length, and site conditions. The detection limits shown have been empirically determined from bump tests of fielded instruments at full path-length.

It is efficient as an alarm and easily integrated into your existing alarm system.

*NOTE: If desired target gases are available within the UV spectrum, we recommend the Cerex UV SENTRY for better pricing options. The UV Sentry is an open-path analyzer that uses UV-DOAS (Ultra Violet Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy). Find more information about UV-DOAS and FTIR techniques here.

Software

Results You Can Rely On

Cerex recognizes that detailed gas monitoring results need to be reliable and available quickly to various stakeholders. For this reason, Cerex engineers developed software to accurately detect and display gases within the air in real time from any location.

On an Air Sentry FTIR, a user can see results remotely on a phone, tablet, or computer anywhere in the world via a virtual connection. GPS and cellular configurations make this possible in remote environments.

All data is automatically saved in an easy to access .csv file; this feature helps our clients in various ways - from daily use to crucial events such as evidence in court. Early detection translates into quicker response times, reduced environmental impact, decreased plant downtime, and reduced exposure to site personnel and the community.
