Airgard

The MKS AIRGARD ambient air analyzer is a rack-style Infrared Spectroscopy(FTIR) based gas analyzer designed to detect toxic gases. It is typically used for Building air handling systems monitoring for air quality and safety, enclosed public area air monitoring (arenas, subways, airport terminals, office buildings), air sampling and threat warning around CWA and TIC manufacturing and storage facilities (CFATS), airborne Molecular Contamination (AMC) Emergency Response (ERT) gas monitoring, ambient air, exhausted enclosures, and abatement systems, gas delivery (gas cabinets and VMBs)
