Laboratory and Research Supplies and Equipment

Infrared Analyzers are filter based.

Infracal Filtometers are portable instruments that supplement FT-IR spectrometers for dedicated quantitative mid-infrared (MIR) analysis applications. They have no moving parts or optics to require alignment. Analyzers can be used to measure total oil and grease and total petroleum hydrocarbons in water and soil. They can also check cleaning efficiencies on metal parts and determine soot...
