Thermo Scientific™ MAX-iAQ Continuous Ambient Air Monitoring System

The Thermo Scientific MAX-iAQ is a fully automated 20-point ambient air monitoring solution designed for the precise detection of trace compounds, even in environments with high humidity levels.

Leveraging advanced Thermo Scientific StarBoost Technology, this system is capable of quantifying 1-100+ compounds down to single-digit parts per billion (ppb) concentrations while ensuring short cycle times. Its high sensitivity and efficiency make the MAX-iAQ a compelling alternative to traditional gas chromatograph-based systems, which are often slower, less sensitive, and more expensive to maintain.

The MAX-iAQ is intended to work as a continuous monitor with minimal user input, featuring dynamic alarms, user-definable sequencing that can vary by time of day, remote monitoring, and standard data publication and reporting. Several enclosure configurations are available to meet individual demands, allowing for a factory-ready solution.

MAX-iAQ Ambient Air Monitoring System Features

  • All sample, calibration gas, and nitrogen connections are aligned on the rear of the system for quick coupling.
  • Designed to operate for 10+ years with minimal maintenance, the system’s FTIR analyzer is factory-calibrated and operates continuously for its useful life without recalibration. If necessary, the system can accept calibration cylinders for auto certification purposes (QA/QC) or generate new calibrations for new analytes.
  • Highly resistant to real-world environmental factors such as moisture and airborne particulates.
  • Integrated design with a temperature-controlled rack to prevent sample sticking, automated sample multiplexer, industrial computer, and flexible I/O interface for easy factory integration.
  • Near real-time channel analysis using a 20-port multiplexer that incorporates sampling and bypass pumps to allow for continuous sample flow on all channels, a programmable logic controller (PLC), and a touchscreen human-machine interface (HMI).
  • Standard Modbus and optional digital/analog data publishing are available for seamless factory integration into existing infrastructure.
  • Thermo Scientific MAX-iR FTIR gas analyzer, allowing acquisition of the full mid-IR spectrum and quantification of nearly any organic or inorganic compound down to 10s of ppb in normal configuration and single digit ppb using Thermo Scientific StarBoost Technology.
  • User-friendly Thermo Scientific MAX-Acquisition Automation Software with a flexible Workflow function in the software directs each device within the system on a time basis.
