Press Release Summary:
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 concentration levels in diesel engine oils.
Original Press Release:
Low-Cost Portable, Fixed Filter Infrared Analyzers For Repetitive Quantitative Analyses Featured In New Brochure
South Norwalk, CT, April 19, 2002 - Low cost, portable infrared analyzers - Infracal Filtometers - for routine quantitative analyses that provide measurement data comparable to FT-IR Spectrometer -- at a fraction of the cost - are feature in a new 6-page brochure from Wilks Enterprise. Infracal Filtometers are filter based infrared analyzers, providing the precision and accuracy necessary for repetitive quantitative mid-infrared (MIR)
measurements in the laboratory, in the field, or in the manufacturing plant.
Infracal Filtometers were specifically designed and engineered to be rugged, easy-to-use portable instruments that supplement FT-IR spectrometers for dedicated quantitative analysis applications and function well in field or plant environments. They weigh less than 5 lbs, are roughly a 6" cube in size, have no moving parts or optics to require alignment, and cost a fraction of the price of an FT-IR spectrometer, including
appropriate sample stage. A variety of sample stages that accept standard ATR and transmission cells are available for use with the Infracal Filtometers that make them useful for a broad variety of quantitative applications.
Several standard Infracal models are available for such applications as:
- Measuring total oil and grease (TOG) and total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) in water and soil
- Checking cleaning efficiencies on metal parts
- Determining soot concentrations levels in diesel engine oils
- Analyzing methanol in water
- Measuring organic or inorganic coating thickness on metal substrates
- Determining principal ingredient content, including water, in household products
- Measuring D20 in H20 and H20 in D20
- Monitoring CO2 concentration levels in liquids
- Determining EVA and nylon coating/thickness on polyethylene films
