FG-DVC Model - The Functional-Group, Depolymerization, Vaporization, Crosslinking (FG-DVC) model is a comprehensive code for predicting yields and compositions of coal-pyrolysis products (gas, tar, and char).

Series 101 TG/Plus Analyzer - The TG-FTIR instrument consists of a thermogravimetric analyzer (TG) coupled with a Fourier-Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer for the analysis of evolved gases.

Advanced Fire Detection System - A new fire detection system using infrared diagnostics (FT-IR spectroscopy) together with advanced signal processing technique (artificial neural networks) promises to provide an early warning of hazardous conditions and has the ability to determine whether the hazardous conditions are from fire or nuisance/environmental sources.

Series 100 FTIR Emission/Transmission Spectrometer - The system performs simultaneous Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) emission and transmission spectroscopy.

Series 205 Spectral Emissometer - An automated bench-top emissometer which measures spectral emissivity over a broad spectral range from the near to mid IR while simultaneously determining the surface temperature at the measurement location.
