Is a solid-state FTIR spectrometer certified for use in hazardous and explosive environments. Mounted directly on, or in-line with, manufacturing pipelines or vessels, the instruments excels at continuous monitoring of industrial liquids and slurries
Keit enables better monitoring & control of manufacturing processes by providing real-time chemical analysis with a breakthrough technology – the IRmadillo.
The IRmadillo can be configured to operate in traditional spectrometer mode, or loaded with a calibration model and run as either a concentration meter, a qualitative classification analyser, or both simultaneously.
Not only does it match the power of a laboratory-grade instrument, but it is tough enough as a process instrument to install directly into a manufacturing line to catch any problem when it happens, not after it happens. Because the IRmadillo provides real-time analyses, Keit helps producers make faster decisions to run their processes more efficiently, safely and profitably.
What makes the IRmadillo different
Traditional FTIR instruments operate using a pair of moving mirrors based on a design from the 1800’s called the Michelson interferometer. The IRmadillo has no moving parts and instead is built upon an arrangement of static mirrors. The light is processed by splitting it and sending it around a loop of mirrors to create an interference pattern on the detector which is analysed and converted into a spectrum.
The IRmadillo was specifically designed to be robust and rugged, and this static-optics design means that if the instrument is subjected to vibrations, impact or general movement then the entire mirror assembly moves as one – meaning no loss in signal. This has been tested on the same equipment that’s used to test satellites for launch – so believe us when we say it’s vibration resistant!
