Expand Test Cell Flexibility with Fast Response, Smallest Sample Cell FTIR Analyzer
HORIBA Instruments Inc., announced it has developed the FTX-ONE, a new Fourier transform infrared measurement analyzer (FTIR). The FTX-ONE will enable more accurate transient measurement of NH3, aldehydes, alcohols, CH4, N2O, and CO2 because it’s higher sensitivity to fluctuations in vehicle exhaust emissions even with a very low sample flow of only 3.5 L/min and a high sampling frequency of 5Hz. It has the smallest sample cell available on the market for faster gas transfer.
The introduction of the new FTX-ONE FTIR Analyzer uses a patented H2O coexistence correction for accurate and unbiased measurement. Additionally, it enables measurement of exhaust gas from engines equipped with after treatment systems, using gasoline, diesel or alternative fuels and meets EURO VI regulations.
“HORIBA is known for its innovative solutions to emissions analysis and the FTX-ONE is another example of how we address industry’s needs with a small, fast response analyzer for their laboratories,” said Rick Rooney, director of technical marketing, HORIBA Instruments Inc. “This product is the latest example of how we continue to help our customers test efficiently and accurately.”
The FTX-ONE’s small footprint is easily integrated into a test cell and is portable to move between test cells to aid vehicle developer’s budget. It has the smallest sample cell available in the transportation market and with its high sampling frequency enables additional testing efficiency in the laboratory.
HORIBA has more than 70 years of experience of measuring emissions with vehicle developers. The FTX-ONE is the latest addition to a portfolio of turnkey vehicle testing and measurement analyzers available from the company. The FTIR technology not only focuses on tailpipe emissions for legislative certification, but also can be used in after-treatment development, or alternative fuel test laboratories.
