IRSphinx: small, robust MIR spectrometers for universal use, stationary or portable
Information from absorption – the measuring principle
Infrared spectroscopy (IR spectroscopy) is a physical analytical method, which works with infrared radiation (wave length 2-25 μm). The methods of molecular spectroscopy are based on the excitation of oscillation states in molecules.
IR spectroscopy makes it possible to measure material concentrations in gases, solids and fluids, both qualitatively and quantitatively. The radiation absorption of infrared light is therefore used through molecules in the respective analyte. In the resulting transmission spectrum, the transmission is measured via the wave length of the light. In the process, each molecule absorbs light of a certain wave length and is thus clearly identifiable. The strength of the absorption serves as a measure for the concentration of the molecule.
The measurement device – compact and robust
Comline’s small, portable IRSphinx makes it possible to measure robust and unmoving parts in the particularly informative medium-infrared range (MIR) with a wavelength between 5.5-11 μm (1800-900 cm-1). It can do this directly in process chains or in machines on-site.
Adapted to special applications. The wave lengths 2.5-5 μm (4000-2000 cm-1) and 7-14 μm (1428-714 cm-1) are also available.
