Atmospheric & Air Quality


Detection and analysis of atmospheric molecules are crucial in addressing two pressing concerns: air quality and climate change. These issues have far-reaching consequences that significantly impact human health, the environment, and the economy. Air pollution, in particular, gives rise to a wide range of health problems, including respiratory diseases, heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Moreover, it poses threats to plants, animals, infrastructure, and adversely affects crop yields and food production.

To effectively tackle these challenges, it is essential to have real-time solutions for monitoring air quality. Such solutions allow us to continuously measure and track the concentration of air pollutants, providing timely and accurate information about prevailing air quality conditions. This information plays a vital role in identifying the sources of pollution and implementing effective control measures to safeguard public health and the environment.

Poor air quality can have severe consequences on human health. Monitoring helps identify harmful pollutants and their concentrations in the air. This information allows authorities to issue health advisories and take appropriate measures to protect vulnerable populations.

    Air quality is a critical factor in maintaining a safe and healthy working environment, particularly in industrial manufacturing settings. The emissions and pollutants generated during various manufacturing processes can have adverse effects on both the environment and the well-being of employees. Therefore, the importance of monitoring air quality in industrial manufacturing cannot be overstated. By implementing effective air monitoring systems, manufacturers can identify potential risks, take proactive measures to mitigate pollution, and ensure the well-being of their workforce.

    Moreover, monitoring air quality is essential for regulatory compliance. Governments and environmental agencies establish strict guidelines and standards for acceptable air pollutant levels. Manufacturers must adhere to these regulations to avoid fines, penalties, and potential legal consequences. By monitoring air quality and ensuring compliance, manufacturers demonstrate their commitment to environmental stewardship and responsible manufacturing practices.

    Our TIGER OPTICS™ CRDS (Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy) gas analyzers use a highly sensitive laser-based technology to measure trace levels of gases in the air.  Our CRDS gas analyzers are designed to be highly accurate and precise, with the ability to detect trace levels of gases in the parts-per-billion (ppb) range. This makes them ideal for monitoring air quality, as they can detect low levels of pollutants that may be harmful to human health and interfere with product quality.

    The TIGER OPTICS T-I Max™ CEM analyzer detects NH3, HCl, HF, H2S, and CH4, among other species, and is ideal for Airborne Molecular Contaminant Monitoring. You will find this analyzer is easy to install, exceptionally intuitive to use, and effortless to maintain. 


    Globally, ambient air quality regulations are becoming stricter and the penalties for violating them are severe. The ability to accurately, quickly and efficiently monitor harmful chemicals and combustible gases is crucial in order to comply with these regulations.  

    Ambient Air Monitoring for industrial hygiene and emissions monitoring can utilize our EXTREL™ MAX300 Series Process Mass Spectrometers provide high speed analysis of multiple chemical compounds from several locations with detection limits as low as 10 parts per billion (ppb). The MAX300-AIR™ Environmental Gas Analyzer also can be configured to monitor a larger number of samples, with the use of several different valve combinations. This gives the MAX300-AIR the largest sample capacity available for a process mass spectrometer.


    Atmospheric pressure ionization mass spectrometry (APIMS) can be used for air quality monitoring by measuring the concentration of organic compounds in the air, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs). These compounds can be emitted from various sources, including industrial activities, transportation, and natural sources, and can contribute to air pollution and impact human health.  APIMS can be used for air quality monitoring by first collecting air samples using a sampling device such as a sorbent tube or a filter. The sample is then introduced into an APIMS instrument, where it is ionized and analyzed using mass spectrometry techniques. The resulting ion spectrum can be used to identify and quantify the organic compounds present in the air sample.

    APIMS is a powerful technique for air quality monitoring because it can detect a wide range of organic compounds, including those that are present in trace amounts. It is also relatively fast, sensitive, and specific, which makes it an effective tool for identifying sources of air pollution and assessing the impact of air pollution on public health. Our EXTREL™ VeraSpec™ Atmospheric Pressure Ionization Mass Spectrometer (APIMS) is designed for reliable and repeatable low parts-per-trillion detection limits for contamination control in Ultra-High Purity (UHP) gases used in semiconductor and other high-tech industrial applications. 


    Greenhouse gases are a group of gases that are released into the atmosphere from various human activities, such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation. These gases, including carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide, trap heat in the Earth’s atmosphere and contribute to climate change.

    In the fight against climate change, monitoring greenhouse gas emissions caused by industrial processes plays a crucial role. Industrial activities are major contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions, which directly contribute to the greenhouse effect and global warming. Monitoring and tracking these emissions are vital for several reasons, including understanding environmental impacts, complying with regulations, improving sustainability efforts, and driving effective mitigation strategies.

    Governments and regulatory bodies worldwide are increasingly implementing greenhouse gas emission regulations and reporting requirements for industries. Monitoring and reporting emissions data are essential to ensure compliance with these regulations, avoid penalties, and maintain a good standing with authorities.

    Our TIGER OPTICS™ CRDS (Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy) analyzers are highly sensitive and accurate instruments used for greenhouse gas monitoring, including the measurement of carbon dioxide, methane, and water vapor in various applications.  They offer exceptional sensitivity, allowing them to detect and measure trace levels of greenhouse gases accurately. These analyzers can detect concentrations as low as parts per billion (ppb) or even parts per trillion (ppt), ensuring precise measurements of the emissions.  Also, our CRDS gas analyzers are known for their high accuracy and precision, ensuring reliable and consistent measurements of emissions. This accuracy is essential when monitoring emissions for compliance with regulatory requirements.

  • Continuous Emissions Monitoring

    Industrial manufacturing operations are subject to strict environmental regulations and emission standards imposed by local, regional, and national governing bodies. Continuous Emissions Monitoring ensures that industries stay in compliance with these regulations by providing real-time data on pollutant emissions. This monitoring helps industries avoid penalties, legal issues, and reputational damage associated with non-compliance.

    Industrial manufacturing processes can release a wide range of pollutants into the air, including greenhouse gases, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter, and toxic substances. These emissions can have adverse effects on human health, contribute to air pollution, and harm ecosystems. Continuous Emissions Monitoring allows industries to identify and quantify the emissions of these harmful substances, enabling them to take necessary measures to mitigate their impact and protect human health and the environment.
