FTIR-CEM Applications, O&M Concerns, Data Management and Process Control



FTIR-CEM Applications, O&M Concerns, Data Management and Process Control
Thursday, August 20, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET

If you have heard about an air quality monitoring system based upon FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) and wonder, “What good is this thing, anyway?”, this webinar will provide the answers and solutions you need on this rapidly evolving technology. 
 
The advent of lower cost and industrial grade OEM FTIR interferometers allow for optically compact, small footprint CEM/CPM designs that are more robust and easier to install, automate and maintain. This webinar outlines the latest in FTIR-CEM/CPM components and how they are best implemented depending on industry specific applications, process emission chemistries and data streaming/control requirements. Proper EPA and ASTM certified field installation, calibration and auditing procedures will be discussed, and existing real-world applications (as currently operated and maintained by the course instructor) will be presented.
