FT-IR stands for Fourier Transform InfraRed, a technique used in material analysis. In infrared spectroscopy, IR radiation is passed through a molecular structure where some of it gets absorbed and some of it passes (transmits) through, which then creates a spectrum representing the absorption and transmission. Since no two molecular structures produce the same infrared spectrum, FTIR maps a unique molecular fingerprint of the sample. This is extremely useful in determining the identity of unknown materials, quality, quantity or consistency of a structure. FTIR is considered as quite an advancement over dispersive types of analysis where those instruments separate the individual frequencies of energy emitted from the infrared source through the use of a prism. The prism separates visible light into its colors (frequencies), or grating, a dispersive element which separates the frequencies of infrared energy, resulting in a spectrum which is a plot of intensity vs. frequency.
Pine’s FTIR based gas analyzers have the capability of percent level detection as well as ppb sensitivity for multiple gas species in a variety of applications.You will have the capability to simultaneously analysing and displaying of more than 30 gases. An FTIR system is the perfect solution for applications in automotive emissions monitoring, stack monitoring, ambient air analysis and CO2 contamination.

The Voyager FTIR System was designed for ease of setup and use and completely eliminates the task of assembling the FTIR system on the job site or on-the-fly. The unit was also engineered with accessability and safety in mind, enabling it to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week while allowing the operator to have nearly full control of the system remotely.
