Real-time process analyserMeasuring chemical reactions in manufacturing environments can be difficult and costly. With the IRmadillo, a compact and tough in-line FTIR spectrometer from Keit, you can get powerful real-time analysis right at the point of production -- saving you time and money. Able to perform in production environments with minimal maintenance, the analyser has an in situ probe and a high-vibration tolerance. Originally designed to survive demanding applications in space, Keit now allows manufacturing industries to benefit from a robust, process-FTIR spectrometer in the continuous analysis of liquids.
