IRmadillo Receives Japanese Hazardous Area Certification

Keit’s IRmadillo in-line process analyser certified safe for use in potentially explosive atmospheres

Oxford, United Kingdom

Keit is delighted to announce the receipt of Japanese hazardous area (Ex) certification for the IRmadillo — Keit’s process analyser for industrial, in-line analysis of liquids. This certification confirms that the IRmadillo complies with all Japanese safety requirements for electrical equipment used in potentially explosive atmospheres and authorises its use in Japan for those manufacturers requiring certification.

Rugged Analytical Instrument

Dan Wood, CEO, Keit commented “The IRmadillo FTIR spectrometer is unlike any other. It has proven to be extremely capable. It is vibration tolerant, compact and tough, built to function under challenging conditions whilst installed directly in-line to manufacturing processes”. Dan continued “It has already received other hazardous area certifications such as ATEX and IECEx. Now with this additional certification, our customers in Japan have assurance that it meets their national safety standards. It now allows them greater choices in analytical technology for safely monitoring their processes particularly for industries such as chemical and pharmaceutical that may operate in potentially hazardous environments. The IRmadillo gives them a great advantage with real-time analysis for optimisation of their manufacturing processes when safety is an issue”.
