Events – Herbstkolloquium 2020

Herbstkolloquium 2020 Keit & IRmadillo

DECHEMA (Society for Chemical Technology and Biotechnology) & GDCh (German Chemical Society) are holding their annual autumn conference ‘Herbstkolloquium’ as a virtual event in 2020 (23-25 November). The 16th colloquium will address the topics of how efficient processes can be achieved through process analysis.

Join Keit’s Dr. Edo Becker as he presents on Tuesday, 24th November 2020.  Dr. Becker will contribute to the discussion on innovations in process analytical technology (PAT) by presenting “The modification and improvement of a robust online FTIR spectrometer for high temperature, high pressure chemistry in challenging environments.  He will outline how Keit’s new developments create opportunities for improved efficiencies through an innovative spectroscopic design.

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. 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”. 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”.

Keit and Quantum Analytics Sign Distributor Agreement for Sale of the IRmadillo to Fine & Petrochemical Industries in the United States

UK-based Keit Spectrometers selects established analytical instrumentation distributor to Fine and Petrochemical Industries in the USA


Keit is delighted to announce a signed distribution agreement with Quantum Analytics (Quantum), an established supplier of environmental and scientific instrumentation in the United States.  The agreement enables Quantum to support the sales of Keit’s rugged IRmadillo FTIR spectrometer in the US fine and petrochemical markets.

Dan Wood, CEO, Keit stated “Quantum was selected due to its established reputation for process monitoring instrumentation, the quality of support and knowledge of the target industries. From their Southern Technology Center in North Houston, Texas, Quantum will provide American manufacturers of petrochemical and fine chemical products access to Keit’s rugged FTIR spectrometer”. Dan continued “Our instrument fills a gap for the need to have a tough, mid-infrared process instrument that can provide continuous, real-time chemical analysis of liquids with dependability and stability”.

Dan Wood continued “The IRmadillo is completely different from other current systems and methodologies. Our novel optical design allows the instrument to be smaller, lighter, and more rugged — able to take on significant environmental vibration and movement – as opposed to current systems that are notoriously large, sensitive to plant operating conditions and require the use of fiber optic couplers or require remote sampling analysis.  The petrochemical industry, for example, has struggled with the best method to accurately monitor water content in glycols as part of a key production process. Our instrument can provide that real-time solution”.

“There is a growing need for better process monitoring and control in manufacturing environments,” said Scott Japczynski, executive vice president of Quantum Analytics. “We are very excited to be adding Keit’s IRmadillo’s spectroscopy product to our portfolio of enabling technologies that meet the demands of today’s evolving, automated manufacturing processes.”

Dan Wood concluded “Most importantly, our goal is to help people make decisions on the production floor through better process monitoring technology. While partnering with Quantum, we can help these companies improve quality, reduce scrap and improve facility utilization using a more practical, no-nonsense instrument”.
