Fourier Transform infrared spectrometry (FTIR) is a non-destructive broad spectrum analytical technique that allows for simultaneous quantification of dozens of compounds in real time, and it’s at the core of Prism Analytical Technologies’ business. FTIR can be used to quantify any compound that will absorb IR light, which excludes only homonuclear diatomic molecules such as oxygen, nitrogen, and chlorine. Unlike mass spectrometry, FTIR detectors that are properly configured have inherent fixed calibrations, so there is no need for frequent detector calibration. FTIR can be used to measure high percent to low ppb concentrations depending on the compound and instrumental configuration, and is found in a variety of industries including but not limited to automotive, power generation, semiconductor, cement, natural gas compression, agriculture, ethanol, and resin.
Prism has three main areas of focus for FTIR – Stack Testing, Integrated Testing Systems, and Technical Support and Services. Click the tabs below to find out more about the full suite of services and equipment Prism has to offer.
