On-line Quality Control Measurements in Varying Conditions


Even as advances in engineering technologies and manufacturing processes have lowered the cost to make and distribute products, the demand for continued improvement is as strong as ever. In an environment where small improvements in characterization of raw materials or subtle changes in process parameters can result in significant production savings, the ability to design faster, smarter and more robust instrumentation is paramount.

When the emergence of miniature spectrometers coincided with development of modular fiber optics, spectroscopy was no longer limited to the lab. Now you can bring the instrument to the sample, which allows industrial users to integrate the measurement into the process. Small-footprint modular systems can be rapidly configured for a variety of absorbance, reflectance and emission measurements, with a number of potential applications.

The Flame spectrometer addresses some of the limitations associated with miniature spectroscopy systems in dynamic process environments.
