Measuring reactions in manufacturing environments can be difficult and costly. With the IRmadillo™, a compact and rugged at-line FTIR spectrometer from Keit, you can get powerful real-time analysis of reactions right at the point of production.
Able to perform in production environments with minimal maintenance and high vibration tolerance, the instrument was originally designed for demanding space applications. Keit now allows manufacturing industries to benefit from the power of rugged process FTIR spectroscopy.
Real-Time Monitoring of Water Levels in Glycol During Glycol Dehydration with IRmadillo
Led by Quantum Analytics.

Keit enables better control of industrial processes with real-time chemical reaction analysis. The IRmadillo™ mid-infrared spectrometer has practical applications across multiple industries involved in the production of liquids and slurries:
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).

Recently, we tested our instrument to see if it could monitor the quantification of water in a petrochemical process – glycol dehydration. If you’d like to find out the results of monitoring water in MEG and TEG, read more by clicking on the button below.
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.
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.
