Abstract
The quantification of chemical processes in real time using infrared fiber-remote absorption spectroscopy requires the accurate sampling of the chemical species at a well defined and reproducible absorption pathlength. Sensors and sampling methods are described which are tailored to the type of process and process conditions being monitored. The optical fiber parameters which effect process sampling and measurement accuracy are reviewed. Sampling techniques are discussed for homogeneous liquid phase and gas phase measurements. The use of flow through cells for side stream monitoring and immersible probes for in-line monitoring of liquid phase streams are covered in detail. Sensor pathlength calibration of a variable path immersible transmission probe is discussed.
