INLINE SPECTROSCOPY


About

Our spectrometers and fiber optic probes were made for demanding production environments. It opens wide possibilities for continuous observation of extrusion and other processes without blind spots. The overall technology is easy to control and use. It is based on inline UV-Vis, NIR, and Raman spectroscopy. In some applications, the usage of two probes to monitor two production lines at the same time is possible with one system. Our technology is fitted to the existing manufacturing facilities, boosting their productivity and quality.

COLOR PROBE (CP)



TECHNICAL DATA


  • Sapphire window
  • Fibre length: 5 m (standard)
  • Stainless steel body (length: 240 mm, Ø 19.05 mm = 3/4 inch)
  • Pressure: ≤ 15 bar
  • Working temperature: -30 °C (not condensing) to 100 °C

APPLICATION USE


CP is used in extruders for opaque liquids, paste, powder, and pellet materials.




REFLECTION POLYMER MELT PROBE (RPMP)

TECHNICAL DATA


  • Probe tip: standard thread 1/2”-20 UNF
  • Consists of one fibre optic and one probe body units
  • Sapphire window
  • Separate fiber optic for easy calibration
