Airgas, Inc. (NYSE:ARG) will host a session on the benefits of automated FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared) spectroscopy and process analysis systems for testing calibration gases at the Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy (PITTCON) in Orlando today at 2:40 p.m.
Airgas currently employs 11 automated FTIR systems at select national and regional specialty gas laboratories located throughout the U.S. The presentation, given by Douglas King, manager of analytical processes at Airgas Specialty Gases, will explore system components, unique concepts, developmental challenges and benefits compared to previous laboratory processes.
“Fully automated FTIR analysis systems provide unattended, extremely high-speed analysis of calibration gas mixtures,” King said. “Our presentation is designed to highlight the benefits and importance of this process which significantly improves the measurement of uncertainties and helps to achieve higher levels of analytical consistency.”
“We are pleased to host this session and exhibit at PITTCON to give our customers and prospective customers the opportunity to meet some of the most capable and experienced people in the industry,” said Jim Muller, senior vice president for specialty gases and life sciences at Airgas. “As the leader in specialty gases, Airgas has specialists to help provide our customers with the gases and equipment that give them consistent performance in the analytical and life science laboratory.”
