HCl/HF Analyzer (hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, water vapor) Overview
LGR’s new HCl/HF Analyzer (hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride) measures hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, and water vapor simultaneously and continuously in ambient air or in industrial process flows (e.g., coal and cement exhaust streams) with extremely high precision and sensitivity. No longer do you have to spend a lot of money or wait a long time to measure hydrogen chloride and hydrogen fluoride simultaneously with high sensitivity – LGR’s HCl/HF Analyzer provides measurements every second with sub-ppb-level precision. In addition, the analyzer can report measurements (on a dry and wet basis) quickly over a wide range of concentrations (mole fractions).
LGR’s HCl/HF Analyzer is available in different packages to allow users to select the configuration most suitable for their needs. LGR’s new Model 927 rackmount package fits in a 19”-wide instrument rack and includes a color touchscreen monitor on the front panel (although an external keyboard, mouse, and video monitor can also be used if desired).
For highest performance, the HCl/HF Analyzer is available in LGR’s “Enhanced Performance” package. The EP package incorporates proprietary internal thermal control for ultra-stable measurements with unsurpassed precision, accuracy and drift. For users wishing maximum portability, LGR’s new “Ultraportable” series provides unparalleled ease of transport for users to carry the instrument anywhere.
The HCl/HF Analyzer uses LGR’s patented Off-axis ICOS technology, a fourth-generation cavity enhanced absorption technique. Off-axis ICOS has many advantages over conventional cavity ringdown spectroscopy (CRDS) techniques such as being alignment insensitive, having a much shorter measurement time, and not requiring expensive and complex auxiliary components.
As with all LGR instruments, the HCl/HF Analyzer includes an internal computer (Linux OS) that can store data practically indefinitely on its internal hard drive (for unattended long-term operation), and that can send real-time data to a data logger through its analog, digital (RS232) and Ethernet outputs.
Furthermore, the HCl/HF Analyzer may be controlled remotely via the Internet. This capability allows the user to operate the analyzer using a web browser. Furthermore, remote access allows full control of the instrument and provides the opportunity to obtain data and to diagnose the instrument operation without being on site.
