Source Emissions Testing

Leaders in FTIR gas analyzer technologies for
stationary source emissions testing since 1992

MAX Analytical Technologies has been deploying FTIR gas analyzer technologies for stationary source emissions testing since 1992.  MAX Analytical is now building a line of analyzers that allow the professional emissions tester to perform more real-time and near-real-time testing in the field.


Our patented MAX™ Analyzer is designed to perform in both FTIR and GC-FTIR modes.  In FTIR mode (USEPA Method 320 or ASTM D6348), all traditional source testing components can be monitored (CO, CO2, NOx, SOx, HCl, HF, NH3, H20, Formaldehyde, and numerous others).  In GC-FTIR mode (USEPA Method 18), MAX can measure ppm to low ppb levels of HAPs, VOCs & SVOCs.  MAX also allows for inlet and outlet HAPs, VOCs & SVOCs measurements on nearly any stack to be performed with a single analyzer.

Applications include:

  • Thermal oxidizer Destruction & Removal Efficiency (DRE) tests (HAPs, VOCs & SVOCs)

  • Coal, Cement & Lime (HAPs, HCl, NH3)

  • Ethanol plants (Acetaldehyde, Acrolein)

  • Natural gas fired Turbines (Formaldehyde)

  • Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (RICE) (NOX, CO, Formaldehyde, VOCs)

  • Chemical Plants

  • Waste water treatment facilities

  • Ethylene Oxide




Our ASC-10™ Automated Sampling Console coupled to a standard FTIR gas analyzer like the MKS MultiGas™ 2030 allows the source tester to perform a complete USEPA Method 320 source test faster by providing automation for instrument zeroing, direct and system calibration checks, spike recovery checks and source emissions testing.
