Real-time process analyser
Measuring chemical reactions in manufacturing environments can be difficult and costly. With the IRmadillo, a compact and tough on-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 the power of a tough, process-FTIR spectrometer for continuous analysis of liquids.
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).
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.
