Real-Time Solutions for Monitoring Atmospheric Challenges & Air Quality

Air quality and climate change are two key issues that drive requirements for detection and analysis of atmospheric molecules. With its high precision, great sensitivity and high specificity, Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) is one of the best analytical methods available to monitor pollutants and greenhouse gases, without interference from moisture and other atmospheric constituents.  Tiger Optics compact analyzers provide an ideal solution for many atmospheric monitoring challenges when you need high speed-of-response, high precision and outstanding detection sensitivity.

Air Quality Monitoring

Emissions from urban environments; industrial or agricultural operations; and power generation are the main focus to prevent hazardous pollutants to pose a health risk for the population. HCl, NH3, NOx, CO, formaldehyde and many others contribute to environmental concerns, such as acid rain, ground ozone and smog, which cause many adverse health effects in humans. With Tiger’s ultra-sensitive CRDS analyzers, you can monitor many of these hazardous pollutants precisely at low levels to ensure that any excess emissions are detected immediately.

Greenhouse Gas Monitoring

Methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) are the most important drivers of climate change. Researchers use sophisticated computer models to predict the influence of these greenhouse gases on climate change. Such models require precise measurements of atmospheric concentrations, as well as quantification of sinks and sources of these gases. Tiger Optics delivers compact, affordable and easy to use solutions for researchers, regulators and industrial customers to monitor CH4 and CO2 with great precision and reliability.

BENZENE FENCELINE MONITORING – Extrel

Explore Extrel for fenceline monitoring.  Extrel is a Process Insights brand.  The MAX300-AIR Environmental Gas Analyzer can measure fugitive benzene at < 0.6 µg/m3 (0.2 ppb).  Recent amendments to 40 CFR 60 and 63 have lowered the actionable level to 9.0 µg/m3 (2.8 ppb), at this concentration Extrel mass spectrometers offer a real-time, fully automated solution with better than 99.9% accuracy.  Air is pulled continuously from the sample points back to the MAX300-AIR for analysis. There is no need for personnel to manually collect samples, or send anything to an offsite lab, and real-time alerts of benzene transients are crucial for easily and accurately identifying the source.   Learn more about our fenceline monitoring solutions from Extrel.

Atmospheric Pressure Ionization Mass Spectrometer (APIMS) – Extrel

Explore Extrel for AMC monitoring.  The Extrel VeraSpec Atmospheric Pressure Ionization Mass Spectrometer (APIMS) is designed for reliable and repeatable low parts-per-trillion detection limits for contamination control in Ultra-High Purity (UHP) gases used in semiconductor and other high-tech industrial applications.  Learn more about Extrel’s real-time, multi-species monitoring for critical impurities including O2, H2O, CH4, CO, CO2, NH3 and more.
