Infrared Spectrometer Description
When you set out to rent or lease an IR spectrometer, you have a number of options available. Consider whether you need to have a unit that is portable and that you can take with you to the field. Consider what types of controls, data recording, and readouts you will need as well. Compare what you need with what the various units can offer. Because many of the units have similar features, you might find it helpful to look up individual reviews of various machines before submitting your request for quote to the KWIPPED supplier network.
Features of infrared spectrometers
With many of the IR spectrometers, you will be able to collect data in the field, as some are small enough to be portable, and they can record information. You can also use them in the field by connecting a laptop to them to provide you with faster analysis. Others may want to keep them in the laboratory. Even though there are quite a few different types of infrared spectrometers on the market, they tend to function very similar and have many of the same features. These include easy to use and to understand controls.
How infrared spectrometers work
When you place your specimen into the device, you will be recording the wavelength and frequency of the IR radiation when it passes through the sample. Different substances will reflect in a manner that is unique for the spectrum, which then makes it possible to identify the sample. It is possible to obtain spectral data from the sample as well. These types of devices tend to have a better overall resolution, a short wavelength limit, and a better signal to noise ratio.
About infrared spectrometers
The purpose of the infrared spectrometer is to study the chemical makeup of samples by using infrared light. The sample could be a solid, liquid, or a gas. They are able to record the relative amount of energy of the IR radiation as it passes through a sample. These devices are at work in a number of different settings, including in the pharmaceutical industry and in forensics.
