ATEX certified , in-line FTIR process analyser for use in potentially explosive atmospheres for high-temperature processes found in petrochemical and chemical applications
Nov 23 2022
Keit have announced the receipt of ATEX, IECEx and UKEx certification of its IRmadillo process analyser for use in high-temperature liquid processes up to 220°C (428°F). ATEX certification rates an analytical instrument as safe for use in hazardous environments including potentially explosive atmospheres. This is a requirement for industries such as chemicals and petrochemicals where the manufacturing processes frequently involve highly volatile and flammable components. The in-line IRmadillo instrument has been designed to provide continuous, real-time analysis of liquid processes over a wider range of analyte temperatures in potentially explosive and hazardous atmospheres for faster monitoring and control of industrial processes.
Keit’s IRmadillo process analyser now has ATEX, IECEx and UKEx certification for operation in high-temperature liquid processes up to 220°C/428°F. This in-line FTIR analyser now offers the petrochemical and chemical sectors dependable, precise and continuous, real-time analysis of liquid processes over a broader range of analyte temperatures in the potentially explosive environments, enabling faster monitoring and control of chemical and petrochemical processes, whilst complying to ATEX criteria.
Improved safety, savings and analysis in chemical and petrochemical processes
Dan Wood, CEO, Keit stated, “Previously, our IRmadillo was ATEX certified for processes up to 80°C. Increasing the certified temperature range of the IRmadillo up to 220°C enables chemical and petrochemical companies in particular, the option of in-line, real-time analysis of their manufacturing processes that run at high temperatures in hazardous atmospheres".
"Safety, reliability and accuracy are key. Currently, many of these processes are dependent upon a human pulling samples from a potentially hazardous process and waiting for lab analysis before obtaining results.”
“Now Keit can automate the process by installing an IRmadillo in-line to improve not only safety but provide immediate analysis for faster decisions and ultimately cost savings with more efficient production. Because the IRmadillo measures in-line and in real time, manufacturers can optimise their processes to reach their full potential, maximise yields and impact the return on investment”.
