NIRS XDS Process Analyzer
NIRS XDS Process Analyzer systems can measure a variety of sample types, such as granules, powders, liquids, slurries, or opalescent substances, among others.
These analyzers provide fast, nondestructive analysis of pharmaceutical, chemical, and petrochemical products. If required, up to 9 inline measuring channels can be multiplexed with this system.
- superior analytical performance through NIRS XDS technology
- scan range (800 to 2200 nm) enables a wide range of applications
- simultaneous qualitative and multi-constituent quantitative analysis or trend analysis
- rugged NEMA 4X enclosure
- no use of chemicals for environmentally friendly and cost-saving analyses
Variety of probes for even the most demanding samples
A broad range of reflectance, transflectance, and transmission probes and flow cells are available, making the NIRS XDS Process Analyzer suitable for the harshest conditions.
In addition, Metrohm Process Analytics has developed dedicated probes specifically designed for fluid bed dryers, granulators, and fermenters.
Optimal accuracy thanks to MicroBundle fiber technology
The optical MicroBundle fibers used in the NIRS XDS Process Analyzer ensure excellent signal transmission. As a result, you can rely on superior analytical performance for powders, slurries, granules, etc.
The fibers are temperature-insensitive and have a superior mechanical and chemical resistance.
Single fibers for longer distance
If clear or slightly opaque liquids are to be analyzed, single fibers can be used. These optical fibers allow you to set up the analyzer more than 100 m away from the sampling point and still benefit from fast analyses.
Custom-made solution for hazardous environments
For hazardous environments, Metrohm Process Analytics engineers and supplies custom-made solutions.
The project can vary from sample conditioning systems to complete shelters including ATEX95-certified systems for Zone 1 and Zone 2 environments.
One NIRS analyzer for up to 9 different sampling points
The NIRS XDS process analyzer is available as a single-point, 4-channel, or 9-channel system allowing cost-effective measurements at multiple sampling locations.
Both single and MicroBundle fibers can be connected to the same system so various sample types can be measured with one instrument.
Noncontact measurement for moving product
A dedicated direct-light XDS analyzer allows non-contact measurement above a conveyor belt or panel regardless of the speed of the sample.
PAT tool to meet FDA directive
With the NIRS XDS Process Analyzer, you can implement Process Analytical Technology procedures in accordance with FDA regulations.
The main advantage is that you will obtain process analysis results in real time instead of carrying out time-consuming laboratory analysis.
Vision: easy-to-use, “all-in-one” NIRS software program
The NIRS XDS Process Analyzer is operated with Vision software.
This proprietary, easy-to-use software can be used for comprehensive data collection, qualitative and quantitative method development, and diagnostics. Various protocols for process control are available: 4 to 20 mA, OPC, Modbus, and Profibus.
