New portable multi-parameter gas analyser
Quantitech Ltd is pleased to announce the launch of the world’s first truly portable FTIR multicomponent workplace gas analyser.
In the past, field-use instruments for the detection of toxic gases have sacrificed analytical performance for the sake of usability. As a result, many portable instruments have merely provided data that is indicative and non-specific, whereas analytical instruments have been difficult or impossible to operate in the field.
The Gasmet DX-4030 from Quantitech is a revolutionary new analyser providing both field-usability and high levels of analytical performance.
The DX-4030 employs FTIR (Fourier Transform InfraRed Spectroscopy) analysis producing almost instantaneous readings for multiple compounds across a wide measurement range that extends to sub-ppm levels.
No sample preparation is needed; the sample gas is drawn into the analyser module by a pistol-type sample probe, which has a built-in pump and a particle filter. The whole system is battery operated with an operating time of several hours.
Data collection and display is facilitated by an easy-to-use PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) user interface with the ‘Calcmet–Lite’ software.
The analyser module and the PDA communicate via wireless Bluetooth protocol and measurements for each compound are displayed literally at the touch of a button. Commenting on the launch, Quantitech Director Dominic Duggan says “We were responsible for launching the Miran™ gas analysers in the UK market and it is pleasing to return to the market that we used to lead. We are very excited about the DX-4030; for the first time users will have a truly portable device that will enable them to measure almost any parameter real-time, without having to know in advance which gas or vapour to test for. As a consequence, we foresee a great demand for this highly advanced technology in applications such as chemical spill response, industrial hygiene, EH40 exposure limits monitoring, contaminated land, leak detection and the measurement of anaesthetic gases in hospitals.”
