Here are described the detectors available for CRYSTAF instrument:
IR4 is the standard detector integrated by default in all the Polymer Char analytical instruments. IR4 is a dual wavelength infrared detector, which uses the principle of infrared absorption spectroscopy to measure the concentration and composition in polyolefins.
IR4 is designed to measure on-line concentration and composition in GPC/SEC, HPLC or to couple it with other separation techniques like CRYSTAF, TREF, etc., and it has been proved as the most appropriate detector for polyolefins.
When adding a composition or a carbonyls sensor, other useful information can be obtained in addition to the concentration.
