AtLAS-900 – Extractive
Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS) Analyser
AtLAS-900 is a laser gas analyser for industrial on line applications, able to measure a great number of gas but optimized for Oxygen measurement (inerting control) in centrifuges and reactors in chemical and pharmaceutical industry, as well as in biogas and landfill gas.
The sample bypass tube can be in Stainless Steel or Teflon-Coated in case of sample gas with aggressive substances.
The TDLAS technology provide an incredibly fast response time, small drift and measure virtually free from interferences of other gases.
Available for safe area or for hazardous area classified Zone 1 / Zone 21 (ATEX certified).

The AtLAS-900, configured as extractive, needs an external sampling system able to deliver the sample gas to the analyser. The sample gas only contacts Quartz and Teflon (or AISI) and this makes the analyser parts totally free from most of the aggressive substances. Again, there are not moving parts and the analyser can even withstand with the direct ingress of liquid and it can be sterilized.
The extremely simplified and resilient design allows to reduce to the minimum the sampling systems components upstream the analyser.
TDLAS (Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy) mainly uses the character that Tunable laser’s narrow band and wavelength change with the current. So, by precisely modulating the current of tunable laser, it can scan a certain absorption peak of detected gas (no absorption of background gas).
And after obtaining the second harmonics absorbed by detected gas, it finally works out the concentration of detected gas by using this second harmonics and line-width.
The TDLAS technology has been developed into a kind of high sensitivity, high resolution, fast response time and high selectivity of gas detection technology, widely used in industrial process monitoring control.
By using a tunable semiconductor laser, AtLAS-900 scans the specific absorption line of the measured gas (no background gas) to get the second harmonic of the gas. Through processing and analyzing the second harmonic and the broadening information of the gas, the concentration of the gas is obtained.
