Instrumentation specialist Quantitech has launched a new portable infrared analyser, the InfraCal 2. Based on the original highly popular InfraCal, the latest version offers a host of new features such as multiple calibrations, lower detection limits, faster analysis, data logging and a new touch screen with security features.
The InfraCal2 has been developed for applications such as sub-ppm detection of oil in water, monitoring cleaning efficiency of metal parts, measuring barrier layers in flexible films, textiles and fibre finishes, and quality control.
Providing easy, reliable, measurements in typically less than one minute, the InfraCal 2 is also a rugged, sturdy piece of equipment with a very low maintenance requirement. The ability to produce accurate readings in the field offers users a number of important benefits including faster results, lower costs per tests and it avoids the problems associated with preserving samples during transport. Costs are lower in comparison with a laboratory FTIR Spectrometer, but also because sample transport costs are avoided.
Commenting on the launch of the InfraCal2, Quantitech’s Dr Andrew Hobson says: “Over 3000 InfraCal instruments have been sold worldwide, so this model will still be available, but for those customers willing to spend more on the new features, the InfraCal2 will be a great alternative.”
