The OMEGA 5 is designed for automated, high-precision, and real-time monitoring of gas concentrations across various applications. Enclosed in a 19’’ rackmount housing, it features a 5-meter multi-reflection gas cell that can be heated to 191 °C. The system is equipped with a TE-MCT detector for low detection limits and continuous measurements as liquid nitrogen is not required.
The high-resolution option provides the capability to measure with a spectral resolution of better than 1 cm-1 (standard: better than 2 cm-1). This enhanced spectral resolution proves invaluable in numerous applications, enabling the identification and quantification of gas compounds, even within complex gas mixtures with a significant degree of overlapping infrared signals.
The high-pressure option provides the capability to conduct gas measurements at pressures of up to 15 bar (standard: up to 2 bar) for temperatures up to 30°C. This option is particularly well-suited for the detection of extremely low gas concentrations, such as impurities, as well as for performing industrial online measurements of gases under elevated pressure conditions.
The OMEGA 5 is operated by the gas analysis software OPUS GA. This software enables the quantification of over 350 compounds without the need for calibration measurements. For an accurate quantification, the pressure and temperature of the gas are constantly recorded throughout the analysis process and taken into account.
The attainable quantification limits for H2O and CO2 are primarily contingent upon the stability of the background concentrations of these gases. The well-sealed and purgeable optics compartment effectively mitigates fluctuations in the background levels of H2O and CO2, resulting in low quantification limits, such as 10 ppm for H2O.
The optional DryPathTM feature even eliminates the need for an external purge gas, making the OMEGA 5 also suitable for mobile applications.
The permanently aligned RockSolidTM interferometer is resistant to vibrations and the prolonged lifetime of the CenterGlowTM IR source ensures data acquisition over many years without maintenance.
