MAX Analytical MAX-iR and MKS 2030 with MAX Starboost

MAX Analytical MAX-iR and MKS 2030 with MAX Starboost

The MAX Analytical MAX-iR and MKS 2030 with MAX Starboost FTIR Gas Analyzers have been engineered to meet the most demanding standards for in-line process, batch sampling, gas purity/certification, emissions testing, and ambient air monitoring. This FTIR allows users to achieve single-digit ppb detection limits while maintaining all of the benefits of real-time data monitoring. Designed to measure low-level EtO (ethylene oxide) (C₂H₄O) and Formaldehyde (CH₂O).

The MAX Analytical MAX-iR and Starboost FTIR Gas Analyzer have been engineered to meet the most demanding standards for in-line process, batch sampling, gas purity/certification, emissions testing, and ambient air monitoring. This FTIR allows users to achieve single-digit ppb detection limits while maintaining all of the benefits of real-time data monitoring. Designed to measure low-level EtO (ethylene oxide) (C₂H₄O) and Formaldehyde (CH₂O). This technology, available only with MAX-iR and Starboost™ systems, eliminate the need for costly GC solutions across a wide variety of applications.

StarBoost™ technology utilizes specialized optics, electronics and analysis algorithms and provides the following FTIR gas analyzer enhancements:

10 – 50 x Higher SNR

  • Much lower MDLs (1 – 10 ppbv)
  • ~ 5 – 10 ppb EtO in ambient air
  • ~ 10ppb formaldehyde in 10% moisture

No Background Spectrum Required

  • AutoRef mode
  • Real-Time continuous measurements

No Double Modulation

  • No artifacts to interfere with formaldehyde measurement
  • Allows for much lower MDLs

Zero baseline drift

  • Background and sample spectrum are from same Igram

US EPA Method 320 & ASTM D6348 Compliant

Starboost™ is built around a small, rugged, high throughput interferometer with 24-bit ADC integrated detector modules that allow for exceptional signal-to-noise without liquid nitrogen cooling. Longevity and reliability of the analyzer has been increased using a long-life VCSEL laser diode and SiC IR source. Integrated temperature and pressure sensors provide increased precision for the most demanding certification applications. Finally, dual-level vibrational dampening allows the analyzer to operate even in challenging field environments. Users can choose between three detectors and integrated computer/display. All systems come standard with MAX-Acquisition™ and MAX-Analytics™ software that provide industry-leading factory integration tools, high speed identification of compounds, and measurement accuracy/stability without the need for calibration.
