New trace chemical analyser for onsite analysis

  • PDF

Quantitech (Milton Keynes) has announced the launch of theFROG-4000™, a rugged, portable instrument capable of analysing trace levels of individual volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in air, soil and water. “With this technology, operators will be able to conduct fast on-site analysis in a range of environmental, health and safety applications,”says Quantitech’s Dr Andrew Hobson. “The ability to analyse VOCs quickly, on-site, is a major benefit; partly, because samples containing volatiles are notoriously difficult to transport, but also because many applications require instant data.

For example, land remediation companies need to know which soil is contaminated so that they can either store or treat it, and they need to know if treatment was successful. Theymay also need to test liquid effluent against a discharge permit.

Certification boosts demand for FTIR multigas analyser

  • PDF

Quantitech has experienced a surge in demand for the Gasmet portable FTIR emissions analyser, the DX4000. “We believe that this instrument is now the only portable FTIR with MCERTS certification, and this is driving demand for both instrument rental and sales,” says Dominic Duggan.

The Gasmet DX4000 portable FTIR gas analyser is typically used in stack emissions monitoring, comparison measurements, catalytic process control and other applications where multiple gas compounds need to be accurately monitored in a hot and humid sample gas. The corrosion resistant sample cell is heated to 180 °C, which ensures that the sample stays in the gaseous phase even with high concentrations of moisture or corrosive gases.

BRE helps eco-innovators with Environmental Technology Verification (ETV)

  • PDF

Ground breaking technology that can benefit the environment often struggles to get recognition and success simply because it is new and has no independent confirmation of its performance.

The EU’s Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) programme can provide a world recognised route for eco-innovators to get that independent recognition.
