A Solution for Rapid Emissions Testing for Vehicles and Components

Available On-Demand Until: December 11, 2019​

Regulators and consumers demand increasingly lower levels of harmful volatile emissions in motor vehicle passenger cabins, pushing manufacturers toward more comprehensive testing – from component level to finished vehicles – to ensure conformance and avoid costly tear-out. This requires a more agile analytical solution than conventional analytical technologies which are expensive, complex, and slow, since they are based on chromatographic methods.

This 60-minute Webinar will detail the application of Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry 
(SIFT-MS) to measure emissions from vehicle raw materials and components, as well as whole car emissions. SIFT-MS can measure the full range of emitted volatile organic compounds (VOCs) e.g., formaldehyde, acrolein, benzene, styrene, and norfluran, in a single analysis. With the combination of simple push-button operation and rapid response, it can achieve throughputs of more than 30 samples per hour with non-technical operators. The real-time data provided also gives the unprecedented ability to identify the source of compound emissions within a whole vehicle within minutes.

SIFT-MS is an innovative, industry-proven analytical technique that directly and instantly analyzes air to part-per-trillion (ppt) concentrations, providing rapid component screening and immediate process feedback. By applying eight rapidly switchable chemical ionization agents, it detects the complete range of emitted volatile organic and inorganic gases. This technique delivers unparalleled real-time selectivity, absolute quantitation, and wide linear and dynamic ranges.
