Several field tests of a Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer have been conducted. The results indicate that effective use of this type of instrument in the field of continuous emissions monitoring (CEM) is possible under the proper conditions, and within limits currently imposed by practical experience in the application. Certain tradeoffs are necessary, particularly those pertaining to the physical attributes of the spectroscopic system, the conditioning and content of the samples to be analyzed, and the level of sophistication of the necessarily computerized analysis techniques. Determinations of the proper tradeoffs and subsequent limitations have not yet been determined for all desirable CEM applications, but are the subject of continuing research in the private and public sectors.
