OMEGA 5 is a compact FT-IR gas analysis system in a 19 inch rack mount box equipped with a 5 m multi-reflection gas cell for the measurement of industrial gases. It is designed for automated, high-precision and real-time monitoring of gas concentrations in many different applications. Overall cost of operation and maintenance is low due to the durability of the various components such as the interferometer, IR-source and diode laser.
Fast, continuous and fully automated identification and quantification of gas compositions via OPUS Gas Analysis software package.
No calibration to the target gas necessary
5m gas cells with integrated p,T sensors (temperature controlled up to 191 °C)
Sealed and purgeable optics
DryPath™ and high-pressure (15 bar) options
Easy operation and maintenance
Embedded in a compact 19 inch rack mount
RockSolid™ interferometer for permanently aligned optics and insensitivity to vibrations
CenterGlow™ IR-source technology
Fully automated test routines for validation according to cGMP (OQ, PQ)
The comprehensive software package OPUS GA (OPUS Gas Analysis) automatically evaluates the measured spectra in real-time in order to identify and quantify the gas compounds. The quantification bases on a nonlinear fitting algorithm that fits the corresponding library spectrum to the measurement. In this fitting procedure also the absorptions of interfering gases are included. More than 400 compounds can be identified and quantified without the need of a calibration measurement. Additionally, individual reference spectra can be measured by the user.
Upgrade to measure water and carbon dioxide in low concentrations much below ambient conditions without the need for an external purge gas supply.
The permanently aligned RocksolidTM interferometer is a unique patented component which yields over 20% higher throughput than ordinary interferometer design. It benefits from dual retro reflection cube corner mirrors and wear-free pivot mechanism located in the center of mass, which ensures exceptional stability and reliability even in harsh environment. With its patented design, the elimination of mirror tilt optically and prevention of mirror shear mechanically is reached.
No need of standby mode to protect the bearing
No need of recalibration after movement
No wearing of mechanical bearing, no spare parts, minimization of service costs
