The 5100 Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS) gas analyzers use an extractive system. Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy is a highly selective, sensitive and versatile technique for measuring trace species in gas analysis. The diode laser source emits in the IR region and is ideal for optical spectroscopy because of its narrow line width, tunability, stability, compactness and ability to operate at room temperature.


5100 series analyzers are comprised of fully enclosed optics, electronics, sample handling and built-in verification. The 5100 and 5100HD units are designed for outdoor installation and are certified for worldwide hazardous area locations.

 

5100

The 5100 hosts a single laser platform to measure a single gas analyte. The device can measure any one of the following gas analytes: water vapor, methane, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, and oxygen in process or flue gas. If water vapor is the measured gas analyte, methane can be monitored additionally at percent levels using the same laser.  The 5100 is designed to handle sample gases with dew points as high as 55°C.

 


5100HD

The 5100HD hosts a dual laser platform. Two separate lasers are installed in the instrument, sharing a common optical path through the sample, enabling the measurement of two analytes simultaneously. This results in significant cost savings to our customers. Where the required concentrations of the analytes differ considerably such that different path lengths are required, two sample cells are used. The 5100HD is also capable of dual stream analysis, and can measure any two combinations of water vapor, methane, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, and oxygen in process or flue gas. Designed to handle sample gases with high dew points, the 5100HD standard version has its sample cell heated to a maximum of 100°C. A version is also available for 150°C.

 

5100P

The 5100P analyzer provides simple, easy-to-use moisture analysis using tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) in a durable, lightweight, and portable package for measurements in natural gas. Designed to be intuitive to start-up and log data, the 5100P is the tool-of-choice for users needing to perform measurements in remote locations or verify fixed analyzer installations.
