Paper Abstract

The development of Open Path FTIR for use in industrial setting has necessitated techniques for obtaining valid background spectra. Measurements over extended path lengths have resulted in greater problems with handling atmospheric moisture correction. Some industrial environments may even have almost continuous levels of chemical species present. Background correction techniques to address these problems employing a near-field source, a fixed reference, or a 'rolling' reference are presented and compared. Field experience obtained at several major plant sites over a year and a half of operation is reviewed.
