Using spectroscopic data for the optical absorption properties of various materials we have developed a variety of Industrial IR Chemical Sensors. Our popular near infrared (NIR) Moisture Gauge detects the presence and amount of water in a coating, glue, film etc. The water may be present as the base component in glue, gel, paint, latex, etc., or it may be present as a coating on a film, as a component of an assembly or as a solvent. The same concept of using the optical properties of a material of interest can be used to design and build an industrial application specific spectrometer to detect the presence of that material and gauge the amount of it.
