An infrared analyzer employing gas cell correlation techniques has been designed and constructed to measure the concentrations of carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen chloride, and hydrogen fluoride in the effluent of stationary sources. An infrared beam is directed across the stack to a retroreflector and back so that the instantaneous average concentration is measured continuously without disturbing the constituents of the effluent. A small, removable, fixed-position grating monochromator acts as a unique optical filter that passes narrow spectral intervals that are centered at wavelengths where the gas to be detected will absorb. The useful ranges of concentration times path length, in atm cm, over which each gas can be measured are: 0.005 to 0.4 to NO; 0.0013 to 0.15 for CO; 0.001 to 4.0 for SO2; 0.0003 to 0.2 for HCl and 0.0001 to 0.02 for HF. The discrimination against other gases in the effluent is excellent.
