FT-IR

Coupling to a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer

More than just the sum of its parts

Especially in the polymer field as well as in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, it can be very useful to have knowledge about the gases that evolve during a process, curing/cross-linking, decomposition or any other reaction.
With the vacuum-tight thermal balances and simultaneous thermal analysis instruments TG 209 F1 Libra®, TG/STA 449 F3 Jupiter® and TG/STA 449 F1 Jupiter®, TG/STA 449 F5 Jupiter®, STA 2500 Regulus, DIL 402 Expedis Select & Supreme, and TMA 402 F1/F3 Hyperion®, as well as with the dynamic differential calorimeters DSC 404 F1 Pegasus® and DSC 204 F1 Phoenix®, NETZSCH offers you efficient systems for coupling to a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FT-IR). The transfer line and the connection adaptors to the furnaces can be heated up to 230°C to prevent condensation of the decomposition products to the greatest extent possible. For spectra interpretation, extensive gas phase libraries are available.

PERSEUS® STA 449 F1/F3 Jupiter®

The Revolution in STA-FT-IR Coupling

Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA) is the perfect tool for characterizing the thermal behavior of organics, inorganics or polymers in more detail, elucidating the chemistry behind the processes.
The  PERSEUS® STA 449 F1/F3 Jupiter® is an unmatched alliance between two successful instruments: the NETZSCH STA 449 F1/F3 Jupiter® and the FT-IR spectrometer by Bruker Optics. Its design is unprecedented and sets a benchmark for state-of-the-art coupling systems.

Due to its robustness, high performance, compactness and attractive price, this combination instrument has the potential to find its way into any laboratory – be it in universities or industry, across the spectrum from inorganics to polymers.

Any existing NETZSCH STA 449 F1/F3 Jupiter® system can be upgraded to the PERSEUS®.

Affordable Gas Analysis

The unrivaled instrument alliance serves as an innovative coupling technique, even for a narrow budget. It has what it takes to become an integral part of any laboratory and indispensible for its future needs.

No Liquid Nitrogen required

The DLaTGS (DLaTGS = deuterated L-alanine doped triglycine sulphate) detector used does not require any liquid nitrogen cooling. This system is therefore particularly well-suited for test runs with an autosampler (ASC) or for measurements of longer duration.

No Separate Transfer Line

The built-in heated gas cell is directly connected to the gas outlet of the furnace via a heated tube. The low volume of this short gas path guarantees fast response and is quite advantageous in cases where condensable evolved gases are present.

Space-Saving Design

No separate FT-IR spectrometer is necessary, the footprint of the PERSEUS® STA 449 F1/F3 Jupiter® coupling is identical to that of an STA 449 F1/F3 Jupiter® alone. This makes the coupled system ideally suited for labs in which space is scarce.
