CEMGAS 5000 CO Laser Analyzer


The CEMGAS 5000 CO Laser Analyzer is a complete pre-calibrated laser infrared spectrometer for CO analysis for safety purposes, process control & combustion optimization and ambient, compliance emissions monitoring. It contains patented Optical Feedback Cavity Enhanced Absorption Spectroscopy (OFCEAS) IR technology for enhanced specificity, selectivity, accuracy and stability.


Why choose the CEMGAS 5000 CO Laser Analyzer?

This CO Laser Analyzer offers level of detection capabilities as low as 1 ppb and a response time of less than 2 seconds. It meets and exceeds the regulatory requirements.

The CO Laser Analyzer will come pre-calibrated for your application and the OFCEAS IR technology associated with low-pressure sampling provides exceptional selectivity, enabling simultaneous multi-component measurements without interferences, regardless of the matrix.

Its patented low-pressure sampling system allows for low-cost installation and low flow rates (3-9 L/h) without degrading response time. The accumulation of contaminant lines and filters is greatly reduced and since it contains no optical moving components, its IR sources (telecom type laser) are characterized by MTBF's of 5 years.

What is CO and why does it need to be measured?

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, tasteless and poisonous gas. In high concentrations (above 35 ppm) it is deadly as it reduces oxygen delivery to the body's organs.

CO is a common industrial hazard resulting from the incomplete burning of natural gas and any other materials containing carbon such as gasoline, kerosene, oil, propane, coal, or wood. Forges, blast furnaces and coke ovens also produce CO.

The most common sources of exposure come from products and equipment powered by internal combustion engines such as portable generators, cars, lawn mowers, and power washers.

Carbon monoxide is among the 6 "criteria" pollutants regulated by the EPA as required by The Clean Air Act (the others being ozone, particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide and lead).

The EPA has set the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for CO in section 40 CFR part 50 and adherence to this is paramount to maintaining the safety, health and welfare of the public.
