Ozone Monitors for Ambient Air

Ozone analyzers all work on the principle of UV radiation absorption.

They allow an accurate measurement of the ozone concentration.

 

The variety of stratospheric ozone applications at high ozone concentrations at the output of a generator requires a wide range of apparatus and the choice of analyzer suitable for a given application is rarely trivial.

 

Our engineers are at your disposal and will help you choose the right analyzer for your application. In addition, we will provide you with accessories to complete your measuring system.

2btech scheméa 205

The Model 205 Dual Beam Ozone Monitor makes use of two detection cells to improve accuracy, baseline stability, and response time. In the Dual Beam instrument, Io (ozone-scrubbed air) and I (unscrubbed air) are made simultaneously. Combined with other improvements, making our instrument the fastest UV-based ozone monitor on the market, while still retaining the small size, weight, and power requirements of our popular Model 202 Ozone Monitor.

2btech 2111

The animation above illustrates the principle of a gas-phase NO scrubber for a single-beam instrument. A small amount (~5 ppm) of nitric oxide (NO; blue) is pulsed into the air flow every 2 seconds to destroy the ozone and produce nitrogen dioxide (NO2; green) which doesn't absorb the UV light. When ozone (red) is present the signal at the photodiode is reduced due to ozone absorbing the UV light. When ozone is destroyed by the NO, the signal increases. The difference in measured light intensities is proportional to the ozone concentration. Because the potentially interfering species (benzene, toluene, xylenes, aldehydes, mercury, etc.; colored yellow) are always present and not modulated by NO, they do not contribute to the signal difference and thus do not interfere with the ozone measurement.

Like our Model 205 Ozone Monitor, the Model 211-G is dual beam, with a measurement of the transmission of UV light through ozone-scrubbed air being made simultaneously with a measurement of UV light passing through unscrubbed sample air, thus increasing the precision and baseline stability of the instrument.

The Mode 211-G allows remote instrument operation via RS-232, choice of averaging time (2 s to 1 hr), analog voltage output (0-2.5 V), optional analog current output (4-20 mA), and an internal data logger.  Our data display and graphing software allows continuous display of data which can be saved for offline analysis

The following figure is a simplified schematic diagram of the Model 405 nm NOx Monitor. Sample air is continuously drawn through the instrument by an air pump2btech schema 405 at a flow rate of ~1.5 L/min. The Scrubber Valve alternately bypasses and sends the sample air through a NO2 scrubber to remove all NO2 in the sample, thus allowing the measurement of a light intensity in the absence (Io) of NO2 and presence (I) of NO2. The Beer-Lambert Law is then used to calculate the concentration of NO2 from I and Io.

 

Nitric oxide is measured by bypassing the NO2 Scrubber and measuring the light intensity while adding (I) or not adding (Io) ozone to convert NO to NO2 according to the reaction:.
NO + O3 → NO2 + O2
As in our ozone monitors, a Nafion tube is used to equilibrate humidity during I and Io measurements, so that any water vapor interference due to refractive effects is eliminated.  NOx is obtained by adding the measurements of NO2 and NO. The instrument may be operated in continuous NO2, NO or NOx mode, or in a mode where NO2 and NO are alternately measured, once every 20 seconds.

Black Carbon Experiment Package

 

The Black Carbon Photometer™ (BCP™) is a rugged, portable, highly accurate and economical instrument for measuring atmospheric black carbon particulates in polluted urban environments.  The BCP uses the simple and direct technique of long-path photometry to quantify—in real time—the total extinction and mass concentrations of particulates in the aerosol (gas + particle) phase.  This direct approach avoids the artifacts and other issues associated with current commercially available instruments, such as the most common current technique of aethalometry that uses filters to preconcentrate samples for analysis.

black carbon photometer schema

The figure below is a simplified schematic diagram of the Black Carbon Photometer. Sample air is continuously drawn through the instrument and its optical detection cell by an air pump at a flow rate of ~1.0-1.6 L/min. The reference valve alternately bypasses or sends the sample air through a PTFE particulate filter (labeled Particulate Filter #1 below) that removes all particulates in the sample, thus allowing the alternating measurement of a light intensity in the absence of particulates (Io) and presence of particulates (I). The Beer-Lambert Law is then used to calculate the particulate extinction (Bext) from I and Io: Bext = 1/L ln(Io/I)

schema 408 calibreur

The Nitric Oxide Calibration Source makes use of a low pressure mercury lamp to photolyze nitrous oxide (N2O) and produce NO in a patented process.
An air pump forces ambient air through NO and ozone scrubbers to remove any ambient NO and ozone. The air flow rate is controlled by use of restrictors (not shown) and a needle valve that vents part of the flow and is measured by a flow meter. Nitrous oxide is supplied by a cartridge containing liquid N2O with a headspace pressure of ~50 atmospheres. The internal pressure is dropped by a combined cracker/regulator and additional flow restrictor, which also is used to provide coarse adjustment of the flow rate of N2O to be in the range 60 ± 10 cc/min. A pressure relief valve inside the instrument housing prevents over pressurization by opening to the atmosphere if the pressure exceeds 25 psig. A Voltage Sensitive Orifice (VSO) valve is used to provide fine control of the N2O flow rate to ~60 ± 1 cc/min. Within the photolysis chamber, a very small fraction of the N2O is converted to NO and N2 by absorption of light at wavelengths near 185 nm.
