Gasmet DX4030 Portable FTIR Ambient Gas Analyser
The Gasmet DX4030 is now available in an upgraded version please click here to go to the Gasmet DX4040 page.
The Gasmet DX4030 was the first truly portable FTIR gas analyzer in the world. The lightweight analyzer module is located in durable Teflon–coated backpack. The DX4030 analyser module houses a Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer, Rhodium-Gold coated sample cell and signal processing electronics. The sample gas is extracted into the sample cell via a probe with built in a particle filter. Hence no sample preparation is needed.
The Gasmet DX4030 is designed for on-site measurements of different compounds (both organic & inorganic) at low concentrations in ambient air. It is battery operated with an operating time of 2.5 hours with one charge.
Typical applications include industrial hygiene and emergency response situations. Analysis results of pre-calibrated compounds are displayed on the screen of a PDA Personal Digital Assistant.
Communication between the analyser module and the PDA is entirely wireless with Bluetooth protocol. In the standard configuration, concentrations of 10 gases of interest and 5 interfering ones can be simultaneously monitored. As an option, ten additional gases can be added to the analysis. Furthermore, with the optional Calcmet Pro – software the analyser can be connected to a laptop PC for extended analysis capability (e.g. identification of unknown compounds with library spectra).
There are no consumable parts that would need replacing on regular basis. In addition, due to FTIR technology, the calibrations remain very stable. Hence no span calibrations are needed. Also, cross-interferences (i.e. interference from other gases) are automatically compensated in the analysis algorithm during the calculation of the results. In summary, the Gasmet DX4030 provides a very cost-effective, easy-to-use solution for multicomponent gas analysis in ambient air.
