Process Guardian Raman™ Spectrometer:

High-resolution standalone Raman spectrometer for real-time process measurements and control

– In-line results in seconds
– Superior measurement performance
– Greater than 10X photon throughput

The Process Guardian™ is a new Raman spectrometer from Tornado. In addition to superior measurement performance, this next generation HTVS-enabled analyzer embodies all critical requirements for straightforward deployment into a process environment. Uncompromised measurements you can trust are now available from a ruggedized standalone platform.

Superior Analytical Performance

The analytical performance of the Process Guardian™ is turbocharged by Tornado’s patented High Throughput Virtual Slit (HTVS™) technology. With enhanced photon collection power, higher SNR can be achieved leading to lower limits of detection without compromising spectral resolution. High precision on both the X and Y axes makes even the toughest chemometric modelling tasks achievable.

The high-quality data delivered by the Process Guardian™ can provide process information related to qualitative or quantitative chemical characterization with unsurpassed detection limits and specificity. This technological advantage delivers enhanced process understanding, which in turn leads to improved and optimized process control.

The Process Guardian™ offers numerous benefits for established analytical practice and facilitates broader adoption of Raman methods for pharmaceutical, petrochemical, food, biotech, and other applications.
