New PL-PMC System for Real Time Polymerization Monitoring

Jun 18 2008 Read 983 Times

Varian, Inc. (USA) has announced the release of PL-PMC, a complete system for online polymerizationmonitoring and control from Polymer Laboratories, now a part of Varian, Inc. The system is designed for a wide range of polymer synthesis applications. It allows continuous sampling of reaction material directly from a reactor during a polymerization followed by chromatographic analysis (gel permeation, hydrodynamic and flow injection) and ACOMP (Automatic Continuous Monitoring of Polymerization)to provide information on all aspects of the reaction as it occurs. This direct investigation of polymerization processes is ideal for polymer research, development, and production
management. The PL-PMC system is particularly valuable for R&D in industry and academia at laboratory scale.
The fast, efficient and routine monitoring of polymerization processes in real time has long been a key goal for polymer chemists. With PL-PMC, it is now possible to analyze a wide range of polymerization reactions continuously from initiation to completion essentially in real time, generating significantly more information than from single, offline or bulk property measurements. This can save time and money, and
improve both product yields and quality. The value of PL-PMC lies in the careful integration of its components and processes to provide seamless operation and consistent results.
