Paper Abstract

A new type of hazardous gas monitoring system has been installed and tested in a chemical manufacturing facility. It detects the possible presence of several hazardous gases in an open air path by FTIR Spectroscopy. A ruggedized commercial FTIR instrument is coupled through a 10" beam expanding telescope through a path approximately 100 meters long. The FTIR detector is mounted at the focus of a second identical telescope. This paper des cribes the system and the results of the testing.
