Paper Abstract

A commercially available fieldable Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrometer has been evaluated for monitoring volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in and around incineration equipment for VOC emissions. During this data collection a 20 X 20 inch polished stainless steel plate was used as the reflection surface, to evaluate the use of less expansive optics for industrial applications. Research has also progressed on developing a method to produce an I0 spectrum utilizing a short path length.
