1.  iRIS 14CO2 Analyzer, Base Unit (Cat # pem-iris-001, Model iRIS-III) 

 The iRIS 14CO2 isotope analyzer measures the quantity of 14C in carbon dioxide (CO2) for discrete gaseous samples analyzed as pure CO2 below fraction modern 14C of 1 (F14C ≤ 1)

  • The iRIS is a portable instrument that can be placed on a laboratory bench
  • Delivers results in under an hour, at a fraction of the cost of traditional analysis
  • Employs a solid-state laser to selectively excite 14CO2
  • iRIS analyzers are internet linked to ensure that the same reference and baseline data are integrated across analyzers for comparable results
  • High precision 14CO2 CRD linear absorption platform
  • Expected precision for 14CO2: < 1% Fraction Modern (e.g., < 10 Δ14C per mill)
  • Employs pre-concentrated and pure CO2 for analysis with negligible N2O concentration to eliminate potential interferences
  • Sample CO2 is admitted to the iRIS via sealed glass ampoules, vessels with stopcock valves or via the PEM iRIS Universal Gas Interface for a variety of peripheral analyzers

Applications: Biofuel composition verification, waste-to-energy certification for organic/petroleum ratio of source waste, refinery operations, oil and gas, atmospheric chemistry, medicine, soil carbon analysis, plant physiology, geochemistry, food chemistry, archaeological dating, authentication of art works, and forensic science

Industries: Oil & Gas, Medicine, Geochemistry, Food Analysis, Plant Biology, Forensic Analysis, Nuclear Facility, Carbon Capture and Storage Facilities

2. iRIS SI-14C ™ Reference System Subscription Service (First Six Months Free) (Cat # pem-iris-002, Model SI-14C -R1) 

 Each iRIS analyzer is shipped with the software to integrate PEM’s online 14C reference certification system.  The SI-14C is the industry’s only SI traceable standard for 14CO2.

  • SI-14C service provides a reference system that is based on the International System of Units (e.g., SI units system), an approach pioneered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
  • The PEM SI-14C Reference System eliminates the need for reference gas production for each analyzer
  • Provides real-time internet-based intercomparison of all analyzers
  • Every iRIS analysis is verified and certified with a time stamp and verification data linked to our system
  • The SI-14C Reference System means that no matter how many iRIS analyzers are in operation they will each have verified and compared reference certification

 The iRIS operation with “gas-free” reference specifications is capable of measuring radiocarbon on an absolute scale, and thus potentially capable of replacing the current artifact-based scale with one that is entirely SI-traceable (Fleisher et al. 2017). All of the online SI-14C Reference System data are protected with banking-level encryption to ensure privacy and data integrity to end-users.

 

3. iRIS Universal Gas Interface (iUGI) (Cat # pem-iris-003, Model iUGI-003) 

This component transfers pure CO2 gas from a peripheral to the iRIS. The iUGI-001 provides a continuous flow interface for the iRIS 14CO2 applications. The iUGI-001 integrates all external and peripheral devices (e.g., analyzers, concentrators).  The iUGI-001 is uniquely positioned to leverage the high-precision and low cost of ownership features of PEM’s iRIS-III into applications spanning industries.

  • The flexibility of the iUGI-001 interface integrates all third-party continuous flow sample preparation devices
  • Compatible front-ends are described below
  • Additional external devices can be easily integrated with the iUGI
  • The iUGI-001 is software-controlled with a stand-alone utility accessible through a desktop icon installed on the iRIS 14CO2 analyzer

 

4.  PEM Atmospheric CO2 Concentrator (Cat # pem-iris-004, Model P-3-ATM-1)  

With this configuration, your project can directly trap CO2 from ambient air or from a gas stream, such as a flue, or other sources piped directly to the analyzer.

  • Locate one or use a network of iRIS analyzers to capture gas
  • No need for flask samples
  • Eliminates the need for vacuum systems to concentrate CO2
  • N2O, volatile organic compounds and water vapor are quantitatively removed

Applications: Biofuel composition verification, waste-to-energy, refinery operations, atmospheric chemistry, soil carbon analysis, plant physiology

Industries: Oil & Gas, Medicine, Geochemistry, Food Analysis, Plant Biology, Forensic Analysis, Nuclear Facility, Carbon Capture and Storage Facilities

5. Flue 14CO2 Gas Sampling Package: Biofuel Blending and Waste-to-Energy Operations (Cat # pem-iris-005, Model FG-iRIS-001) 

 With this configuration, your process and compliance requirements can be met by linking an automated flue gas sampling system with the iRIS providing the first automated package for biofuel blending and waste-to-energy operations. The system is designed to operate in proximity to the stack for direct sampling of the flue gas as well as from other gas source locations. A precision for blended fuels or source composition for waste-to-energy facilities is expected to be < 1% Fraction Modern (See FAQ and Specification Sheet for additional information). The data rate is ~ 45″ per hour or ~32 samples per day. In conjunction with the SI-14C reference system, each sample analyzed will bear a time-stamped verification certificate reporting the SI-14C parameters. In cases where networks of analyzers are deployed across local, regional or global facilities, the PEM System of SystemsTM provides automated reporting and alarm settings for all analyzers in the network. All networks can be linked and remotely probed for process conditions. The flue gas analyzer (e.g., Amatek Advanced Flue Gas Sampling System) is also controlled by software integrated with the iRIS.

  • D14C in flue gas CO2 is determined by drawing air from the stack
  • Highest sample integrity is maintained for greater accuracy
  • Simple, low-cost installation – single flange mounting
  • Probe remains clean and particulate free at all times providing clean gas to the analyzer
