The MCP-200 is a real-time concentration monitor for chemical species that absorb IR radiation.
From the MicroSpec series comes the MCP-200, a concentration monitor for species that absorb IR radiation. This solid state package combines a non-dispersive IR detector and a proprietary optical path design. Engineered to be compact and modular, the MCP-200 excels as both a rugged standalone and an integrated component.
The MicroSpec MCP-200 is used to measure the following chemicals:
|IN LIQUID PHASE||
|IN GAS PHASE||carbon monoxide | CO|
|carbon dioxide | CO2|
|ethylene | C2H4|
|methane equivalency | CH4|
The MCP-200 uses a technology known as Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) Photometry. In a ruggedized package, the MCP-200 pairs an NDIR photometer (2-10 micron) using a tungsten black body source with a proprietary-design optical flow cell. The path length of the flow cell is specialized per measurement application.
The MCP-200 uses serial communication between the detector and the HMI.
Note: All performance specifications are subject to the assumption that the sample conditioning system and unit installation are approved by Applied Analytics. For any other arrangement, please inquire directly with Sales.
