High-Temperature IRmadilloDiamond

Keit’s Newest High-Temperature IRmadilloDiamond for Monitoring Processes up to 220°C (428°F)

Rugged industrial FTIR process analyser with increased temperature compatibility 

Oxford, United Kingdom

Keit is pleased to announce the release of its high-temperature IRmadilloDiamond analyser for liquid processes up to 220°C (428°F). The in-line, diamond-ATR instrument has been designed to provide continuous, real-time analysis of processes over a wider range of analyte temperatures for faster monitoring and control of industrial processes.

Industrial Process Monitoring Technology

Dan Wood, CEO, Keit stated “The IRmadilloDiamond is a robust mid-infrared analyser. It performs over a full pH range and can be installed directly into production lines with analyte temperatures ranging from ‑20°C up to 220°C. This makes it ideal for industries such as Pulp and Paper that operate with high-temperature processes under similarly harsh conditions. It’s a challenge for them to find real-time analytical techniques that work”.

Dan elaborated “We’ve been working with several pulp mills in the analysis of green, white and black liquor streams in the kraft process. We’ve successfully proven the ability to monitor key components that affect the safety and efficiency of the recovery boiler and the recausticing process with the aim of improving the efficiency of the chemical recovery process. The IRmadillo can help them achieve real-time monitoring”.

“Another industry that benefits from the high-temperature IRmadilloDiamond”, continued Dan, “is the alumina refining sector where conditions are brutal on standard monitoring instrumentation. The rugged IRmadilloDiamond gives alumina refiners immediate concentration analysis of such chemicals as caustic soda. Being able to measure this throughout the refining process allows for better control of chemical addition. It minimises waste, reduces energy consumption and improves production efficiency to reduce costs”.

IRmadillo and Industry 4.0

Dan concluded “But the appeal of the IRmadilloDiamond’s higher temperature range also applies to other industries including bulk and specialty chemical manufacturers. In the end, as all of these industries align themselves with Industry 4.0 principles, the IRmadilloDiamond is the process analytical technology that allows them to move their monitoring in-line with production processes for real-time analysis and improved control”.

Keit Increases Process Compatibility of the IRmadilloDiamond CE Process Analyser

Oxford, United Kingdom

Keit is pleased to announce increased process compatibility of its IRmadilloDiamond CE process analyser.  The in-line, diamond-tipped analyser has been upgraded for improved resilience to thermal shock, the ability to perform over a wider range of analyte temperatures and compatibility with cleaning processes that were previously reserved for the IRmadilloDiamond Bio version.  Communication and power connections have also been streamlined for increased ease of use.

Industrial Process Monitoring Technology

The IRmadilloDiamond CE becomes Keit’s go-to instrument for harsh manufacturing conditions in non-Ex environments. It has a full-range of pH compatibility, a resilient low-energy emitter, and the ability to be installed directly into production lines and vessels with analyte temperatures ranging from -20°C up to +130°C. In addition to the ability to leave in place during clean-in-place (CIP), and sterilise-in-place (SIP) processes, Keit has also improved systems connectivity making it easier for clients to set up, install and run. 

Value of In-Line Monitoring with the IRmadillo

Dan Wood, CEO, elaborated on the value of the IRmadillo “In-line spectroscopic analysis provides information-rich data in real-time, enabling faster decisions on controlling processes to improve quality and reduce cost. Having a device that can remain in place during a process and tell you what’s going on inside the vessel or pipeline is invaluable to industries concentrating on making every production step efficient such as Chemical, Pulp & Paper, Biofuels, and Industrial Biotechnology”. Dan continued “Keit continues to produce innovation with technology that can reliably and swiftly monitor processes that most standard analytical instruments just can’t handle”.

New High-Temperature IRmadillo25H

IRmadillo25H logo

Keit’s New in-line Process Analyser, IRmadillo25H, with compatibility of processes in liquids up to 220°C 

Oxford, United Kingdom

 Keit is proud to introduce the IRmadillo25H – a new high-temperature model in the family of IRmadillo process analysers. The IRmadillo25H is Keit’s newest option for industrial in-line monitoring of liquid processes at analyte temperatures up to 220°C. As an additional benefit, the high-temperature model is ATEX and IECEx certified safe for use in hazardous environments.  

Increased Temperature Range

Dan Wood, CEO, Keit, commented on the increased temperature range compatibility Many of our customers, particularly in the chemical and petrochemical industries have processes that run at elevated temperaturesWe’ve designed our IRmadillo probes to be rugged and remain in line over a range of operating and process conditions.  The IRmadillo25H fills the gap for those manufacturers needing an accurate and reliable in-line monitor for high-temperature processes in Ex environments”.

Process Monitoring Technology

Dan elaborated on the value of the IRmadillo An in situ spectroscopic analyser brings production engineers closer to achieving the goals of Industry 4.0. Specifically, in-line spectroscopic analysis provides information-rich data in real-time, enabling faster decisions on controlling processes to improve quality and reduce cost.
