Keit’s Diamond Model of In-Line Process Analyser now Ex Certified: Safe for use in Hazardous & Potentially Explosive Environments
Oxford, United Kingdom
Keit is delighted to announce the receipt of ATEX and IECEx certifications for the IRmadilloDiamond – Keit’s process analyser with a diamond-ATR tipped probe for industrial, in-line analysis of liquids. The European and globally recognized Ex certifications confirm the IRmadilloDiamond safe for use in hazardous environments including potentially explosive ones. This is a requirement for many operators in process industries whose production processes frequently involve potentially explosive atmospheres.
The standard model of the IRmadillo (IRamdillo25) has already received Ex certifications. Now Keit’s customers can benefit from the option of a diamond-ATR model enabling those industries a choice in their analytical technology for a variety of operating environments. A distinguishing feature of the IRmadilloDiamond is the inherent hardiness of the diamond ATR to tolerate a pH range of 0 to 14, along with a natural resistance to abrasion and overall general abuse. Importantly, for all IRmadillos, the ability to remain in place in the pipework during production processes leads to a decrease in production downtime and safety issues. As a result, production managers and engineers have the information they need to monitor, control and optimize a wide range of processes in real time.
About Keit Spectrometers and the IRmadillo Analysers
Based in the Harwell Campus in South Oxfordshire, England, Keit has created the family of IRmadillo mid-infrared instruments to provide in-line process analysis of liquids over a variety of operating environments – including those most challenging. Now with two choices, the IRmadillo25 and the IRmadilloDiamond, both are Ex certified and built tough with fixed sampling probes and a vibration-tolerant design. They enable real-time chemical reaction analysis of liquids in environments that challenge standard instrumentation.
