Process Analytical Technologies (PAT) helps you keep an eye on your production and quality control and increase your plant performance. The key to success is a precise, robust spectroscopic interface through optical immersion probes or measuring cells. With process spectroscopy, users can measure defined ingredients directly on site - qualitatively and quantitatively.
Hellma process probes can be integrated directly into reaction boiler and vessels. Hellma flow cells can be integrated directly into the product stream. By choosing the appropriate measurement method and materials you can tailor the probes or flow cells according to your needs.
If you are looking for a complete solution, please refer to our spectroscopy solutions division. Hellma Solutions provides you with the entire portfolio needed to solve optical measurement tasks by means of precisely tailored solutions.
Process analytical technology (PAT) is very well-suited for the direct monitoring of chemical reactions and for the quality assurance of intermediate end products in chemical production plants. PAT can be used at all stages in the production cycle. Information about individual processes can be transmitted over long distances directly from a vessel or bypass using optical fibers. That way information can be analyzed at a distance, irrespective of extreme environmental conditions in the process such as high pressures or temperatures. For constant real-time information special immersion probes and measuring cells for extreme conditions are available. The use of PAT leads to long-term optimized process management and control. Further advantages are:
PAT technology works efficiently and reduces costs sustainably as life-cycle cost calculations prove. The return-on-investment is often only 2 to 3 years!
