Abstract

A method of interference correction for improving the sensitivity of non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) gas analysis system is demonstrated. Based on the proposed method, the interference due to water vapor and carbon dioxide in the NDIR NO analyzer is corrected. After interference correction, the absorbance signal at the NO filter channel is only controlled by the absorption of NO, and the sensitivity of the analyzer is improved greatly. In the field experiment for pollution source emission monitoring, the concentration trend of NO monitored by NDIR analyzer is in good agreement with the differential optical absorption spectroscopy NO analyzer. Small variations of NO concentration can also be resolved, and the measuring correlation coefficient of the two analyzers is 94.28%.
