Real-time process analyser

Measuring 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.


Keit enables better control of industrial processes by providing real-time chemical reaction analysis of liquids.  The IRmadillo mid-infrared spectrometer has practical applications across multiple industries.

Orange-Tri  Vibration tolerant

Move it, shake it, put it next to your manufacturing equipment. Performs even in high-vibration environments. Make faster decisions with continuous real-time analysis.  Catch any problems in your process when they happen, not after they happen.

Orange-Tri Long-term stability

Extraordinarily stable with consistent performance and reliability. Optimise your production process with dependable analytical technology to reduce down time, worry and costs.

Orange-Tri Compact size

The compact FTIR spectrometer mounts directly onto manufacturing vessels and process lines. Obtain real-time insights of your reactions without the inconvenience and restrictions of larger instruments.

Orange-Tri Rugged and dependable

Super sturdy instrument with infrequent need for re-calibration. With reduced hassle, spend less of your time on required maintenance of your process instrumentation.

Orange-Tri Real-time analysis without the hassle

The novel optical design expands your monitoring reach by eliminating the need for long fibre-optic cables from the probe to your reaction. You get to know how your reactions are progressing in real time without the hassle of inconvenient connection cables (or remote sampling).

Orange-Tri Wide temperature range

Can operate indoors or outdoors. Reduce waste and improve your production processes in environments where standard instruments fail.

Application Notes

Free Fatty Acid Monitoring

Edible Oil manufacturers need to monitor components such as free fatty acids (FFAs) during the refining process to accurately dose the process and neutralise. Current technologies struggle to accurately monitor key components in real time. Keit has developed the rugged IRmadillo process analyser for on-line monitoring of industrial processes to provide continuous real-time results.

Fermentation Monitoring

We monitored two different industrial fermentation processes with our vibration-tolerant FTIR spectrometer – a classical sucrose-yeast fermentation and an industrial bacterial fermentation – with great results.  If you’d like to read more about this application, please click on the button below.

Sugar Identification

We used our IRmadillo spectrometer as a sugar sensor. There are many different types of sugar molecules all with similar structures making them at times difficult to identify. We took the challenge to analyse a solution of seven different sugars simultaneously. If you’d like to find out the results and read more about this application, please click on the button below.
